Two days after Stephen Colbert and Nick Kroll challenged celebrities to post photos of their awkward teenage years, TV star Kelly Ripa got in on the action. Colbert and Kroll are pushing the “#PuberMe” campaign to help out Puerto Rico.

For every celebrity who posts a photo of their awkward self Colbert’s Americone Dream Foundation will donate $1,000 to One America Appeal, a charity founded by the five living ex-presidents.

Kelly Ripa joined the effort by posting a photo of herself from 1983.

“#tbt circa 1983. Jacquie Maloney (aka Laverne and me from Cats) at the Berlin community school Halloween dance. Yes I’m holding my tail. Deal with it! 👻🎃💋😺 #puberme,” Ripa wrote on Instagram.
