It’s Bullying Prevention Month and the Solution is Not Punishment, Blame or Shame
FREE2LUV, a nonprofit that offers a place where youth are EMPOWERED, individuality is CELEBRATED, bullying is not tolerated and LUV ROCKS shares their vision for a bully-free world!
With the rise in teen suicides and 1 out of every 3 children experiencing some form of bullying, October’s Bullying Prevention Month is a pivotal time for children, parents and educators to address the importance of celebrating individuality, and treating others with respect and kindness, beginning with yourself.
“One does not bully out of excessive self love, but rather out of lack of self love. So, love is where it’s at! Free2Luv focuses on spreading the love and not ‘hating the haters’ which so many organizations do, even if inadvertently,”
It is Free2Luv’s mission to reach as many communities and children as possible to spread the word Friends Don’t Let Friends Bully. To amplify this message, billboards are currently being displayed throughout Seattle metro featuring the champion Seahawks and the campaign slogan Friends Don’t Let Friends Bully. The billboard campaign also features Celebrity Ambassadors Mayim Bialik, award-winning actress currently starring on the The Big Bang Theory along with fourteen year old Benjamin Stockham, the star of NBC’s About A Boy series, both big advocates of celebrating individuality.
Free2Luv’s goal with the Friends Don’t Let Friends Bully campaign is to align themselves with like-minded community partners such as Clear Channel who are dedicated to social change. “When we empower and uplift our youth, we raise confident, empowered children, and minimize bullying and teen suicide,” says Free2Luv President, Tonya Sandis.
The community is encouraged to visit Free2Luv.org to #TakeThePledge where youth are empowered, individuality is celebrated and bullying is not tolerated.
