Recently on Instagram, Hilarie Burton participated in The Awesome Challenge. Burton is best known for playing Peyton Sawyer on One Tree Hill, but recently appeared on Lethal Weapon as Karen Palmer. She is also the wife of The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Initially, Burton was challenged by her good friend and fellow One Tree Hill co-star Sophia Bush to accept The Awesome Challenge. She not only accepted the challenge, she also showed off her confidence by wearing a shirt with her husband’s face on it.
Am I a dork for wearing a shirt with @jeffreydeanmorgan face on it?? Sorry, not sorry! Daddy is here to represent during naptime! And when @sophiabush challenges me to join in on the #theawesomechallenge , I jump on that asap. Use their hashtag and @rocketsofawesome will donate back to school clothes to @baby2baby for a kid in need!!! Tag three friends. Join me @jeffreydeanmorgan @danneelackles512 @bigbaldhead
By participating in this challenge, Rockets of Awesome will donate clothes to children in need to Baby2Baby. To participate in the challenge use the hashtag #theawesomechallenge, tag @rocketsofawesome, pose in a piece of clothing that makes you feel confident on Instagram, and tag three of your friends! The goal is to send 7,500 children back to school in clothing that brings out their inner confidence too.
The Awesome Challenge originated three days ago on August 21st via Rockets of Awesome’s Instagram account and their website. By posting these pictures, children around the world are reassured that one can exude confidence in any outfit. Sometimes by merely putting on an article of clothing, or an outfit, we are reminded that we can accomplish anything. Promoting empowerment among our youth
Burton has issued the challenge to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danneel Ackles, and Norman Reedus. So far the responses have both been nothing short of spectacular.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan gladly helped raise awareness to this great cause and accepted the challenge Burton issued to him later on the Wednesday. He tagged Ever Carradine, Chris Daughtry, and his niece to participate in this challenge as well.

Danneel Ackles shows us all that confidence includes comfort in her overalls. She issued the challenge to her husband, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Genevieve Padalecki.
Challenge accepted @hilarieburton … have I ever said no to you before?!? This is my favorite pair of overalls- I always put them on when I need to Get-Stuff-Done. So I wear them everyday. Not Kidding😂💪. For EVERY post using the hashtag #theawesomechallenge @rocketsofawesome will donate much needed back-to-school clothing to a @baby2baby in need.
