By: Stopping the Madness Antibullying Foundation
The Stopping the Madness Antibullying Foundation was founded in 2014 and is headed by Professional Coach and Parenting Advocate, A'Mera Frieman and her husband, Zach, after dealing with the bullying effects on their son and the children of friends and family.
"When my son had to have a colonoscopy due to acid reflux and the stress of attending school and being bullied, I blamed the school. It was after I spoke with his assistant principal that I realized that the schools could only do so much because of the "boys will be boys" or "they're just playing" mentality. Teachers already had a heavy load with testing, lesson plans, and other behavior issues, so they couldn't pay as much attention as they should. That was the moment that defined my mission. My son and other children were bullied because of the madness of a broken school system and parents who needed educating and support," states A'Mera Frieman.
Since it was founded, the Stopping the Madness Antibullying Foundation has assisted children, parents, and teachers with school supplies, school clothes, advocacy training, antibullying support, and informational workshops for parents and children. "The Stopping the Madness Antibullying Foundation was founded on the principle that children could not receive the benefits of the program without parent involvement as well. We've come a long way in two years, and with the Grace of God and generous donors, we can stop the madness of the bullying epidemic that is getting worse each year," states Frieman.
The Google Nonprofit package includes Google for Work apps, the Google Ads grant, and the YouTube promotional video package. Frieman states that the Google Nonprofit approval is well-timed with an additional facet of the foundation added in early May 2016. The A'Mera Frieman American D.R.E.A.M.E.R.S. Academy is an educational initiative sponsored by the Stopping the Madness Antibullying Foundation. The D.R.E.A.M.E.R.S. Academy is headed by Frieman and Education Expert and Professional Coach, Oracia McCurtis. Their vision is to refocus educational initiatives for parents and students to live successful lives. Adult and youth students are provided with SMAF antibullying training while they attend the Academy.
