Today is the National Day for Action Against Bullying and Violence. I love seeing the anti-bullying campaigns that have popped up over the last few years. Kids are starting them themselves, along with whopper-sized organizations--all in the name of bully awareness.
While I sincerely believe bullying will never fully go away, I also believe that by empowering kids to speak out, stand up for themselves and each other, we really can help make a difference in victims' lives.
I'd like to take this opportunity to share a story with you called FLOAT.
All proceeds of FLOAT go towards funding the FLOAT MISSION.
FLOAT is about kids sticking up for each other, and the campaign is really about individuals starting up their own chapters and groups in their communities. FLOAT is not a patented or copyrighted name. It's available for use by ANYONE. Feel free to use it in your own school to create awareness and get involved.
Want to learn more? Check out the blog here and find out how. There's also a list of helpful links to other ant--bullying sites. Feel free to snoop around and make the FLOAT cause your own.
More information on where you can buy the story FLOAT can be found here. What are you waiting for? Start spreading the word! And feel free to snag a copy of the picture below for your own website or blog.
And be sure to stop by Sheri A. Larsen's Writer's Ally to see more posts on bully and violence awareness.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Has bullying ever affected you or someone you know? Please share...
