Make A Move To End Bullying

Did you know that more than 25 million families are traumatized by bullying in the U.S. today?* Bullying has unfortunately happened throughout history, but if you watch the news or read the newspaper, you can see how much it has escalated over the years. With the aide of social networking sites and mobile devices, children are no longer able to escape once they get home. Bullying can now follow them wherever they go. Schools have implemented bully prevention programs, laws have been made to help in the fight, but we as individuals need to also join the fight against bullying. We cannot sit back and stay silent because the losses are too great. Too many children have taken their lives. Too many school shootings have happened because of retaliation. Too many children are harming themselves to deal with the pain. But, together we can help raise awareness and teach others how to prevent bullying from occurring.
For those of you who are unaware, October is National Bullying Prevention Month. It's a time to spread the word about bullying and the effects it has on our schools and communities.  However, October is not the only time the bullying occurs and therefore we need to all pull together and work every day to end bullying.  I created this website because not only do I want to raise awareness about this important cause, but also to help raise money for an amazing organization that fights the battle against bullying every day.
Teach Anti-Bullying Inc. (TAB) is an organization located on the East coast in Havertown, PA. Their mission is to assist schools, communities, and organizations nationwide with the development of bullying prevention. They conduct school assemblies, training in bullying and school violence prevention, outreach programs, as well as assisting families that have been victimized by a bullying situation. They are truly inspiring and I am honored to be able to help raise donations for such a deserving group of people. The video below, courtesy of Teach Anti-Bullying Inc., gives you an insight into what they have been able to do this year.

As a mother who has watched her own son struggle with bullying at school, I know the effects it can have on the victim. It's time for us to come together and make a stand against bullying and one way you can help is by making a donation.  Any donation is welcome.  Help us bring an end to bullying and make the world a safer place for our children.

Hi everyone! I had planned to close down this fundraiser and work on new ideas on how to raise money for TAB. However, I recently received a new donation and I'm hoping that word will continue to spread so we can raise more money for such an important cause. So please, tell your friends to visit our website and make a move toward ending bullying!

Tomorrow, November 6th, is the last day to make your donations for the Make a Move event for the month of October. I am currently working on collecting donations from local businesses as well and I am hoping that with this event combined with their donations, we will be able to reach our goal. So please, don't forget to sign in and make your donation for the Make a Move event!

Also, if you know of anyone who would be interested in just making a donation, let them know that this site will be up and running until the end of the month and any donation is welcome. Thank you so much for your support!

Ok everyone, tomorrow is the last day to Make a Move! I honestly am so excited to see the results of everyone's month long Moves. Remember I will be accepting your donations for the event until November 6th. However, after talking with other organizations and businesses who may be donating to our cause as well, I will keep the fundraiser page up and running for the month of November so they will have time to get their donations approved. So if you know of anyone who would like to donate to our Make a Move fundraiser, please pass along the website address and let them know they have the month of November to also donate.
