Make it Orange, Make it End (Bullying)
Here’s more information on bullying from the Pacer Organization and so I thought I would share. “If not now, then when? If not me, then who?” Hillel the Elder
With 1 in 3 children being bullied at school, chances are it’s happening to someone you know and care about. YOU can do something to help, and it’s as simple as snapping a picture!
Here’s how you can help:
- Find something orange to wear on Unity Day, October 9th. You can wear orange shirts, pants, hats, beads, bands, face paint, hair dye – be creative!
- Wear orange on October 9th to “Make it Orange, Make it End!”
- On October 9th, share your commitment to bullying prevention with the world by posting photos of your Unity Day activities to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with #UnityDay2013!
- Watch the movement grow as posts tagged with #UnityDay2013 show up on our homepage, www.pacer.org/bullying.
Be a part of a social movement and show your support for bullying prevention! Join us on Unity Day by tagging your posts with#UnityDay2013!
With peace and gratitude, Bill
So important to stand united on this issue. My sons have had to contend with bullying and it’s certainly difficult for everyone involved. Wish I would have read this earlier, but I’ll wear orange any day, really, to show my support!
Such a important cause that everyone needs to focus on. Proper education for those that are being bullied by raising self esteem and those that are the bullies by teaching them better communication habits are a step forward for our society.
This is such an important topic. My daughter was bullied in sixth grade and it still irks me how little was done about it until I called the police.
I did this and hope my “UT Orange” color counts!! LOVE IT! Thanks, Bill!
This is such a great cause to bring awareness to. I just recently had to address a bullying incident that was taking place in my class because I have zero tolerance for it.
Thanks for bringing awareness… this is sooo important; I will share will all my family and friends.. just a month ago a little precocious 12 year old girl jumped off a water tower here in town because of bullying.. Sad sad story.. we need to stop it.. Thanks for sharing
