The Ice Bucket Challenge has been transformed into a brand new way to help a breed that always gets an undeserved bad rap: Pit Bulls.

Dog Park Publishing is on a mission to show, celebrate and otherwise say “SHAZAM!” to Pit Bulls everywhere! Thus, the social media challenge #KissedByAPit was born to help change people’s perception of Pit Bulls and raise money for animal rescue groups and shelters. The response has already been incredible, as pictures and videos of Pittie lovers have poured in since the challenge started on August 20th.

People have being getting kissed by Pit Bulls left and right for the past week and a half.
