What is #ShedTheShame™?

The Movement

Are you an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse? If so, the scars that remain can be overwhelming. At times you can feel alone and desperate. Sometimes you still think it was your fault. Adult survivors of childhood abuse often grow up with deep scars, and most battle addiction, depression, anxiety issues, suicidal thoughts, and a host of other ailments. 

The Purpose

#ShedTheShame™ is a nationwide campaign empowering men and women who suffered from crippling childhood abuse. This website provides you the opportunity to share your story and help other people just like you who may have suffered through similar trauma.  

The Survivors

This movement is for YOU. Adult survivors of child abuse are often forgotten about. The stigma of "get over it" and "you should be okay because it happened years ago" can simply be too much to bear. it is important for you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This movement is a safe place for you to come forward, even anonymously, and shed the shame of your past. Wear your scars with pride, and refuse to let your past dictate your future anymore.

Constance's Story

Constance Reed, along with her two daughters, Chloe and Lily, passed away in 2016 in the tragic wildfires that ravaged Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Her husband, Michael, has created The Reed Foundation and #ShedTheShame™ movement to honor her one wish: To save others. Molested as a child, she struggled for years to cope with the scars of that abuse. Her video, made in 2015, has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and continues to empower other people to come forward and tell their story.


Amy Lynn and The Reed Foundation are partnering to bring you her newest single, "Sparrow". If you are an adult survivor of childhood abuse, we invite you to listen to these words.  We hope Amy's message in this song touches your heart.
