Why Should You Give?
Many youth feel ashamed to let their parents and even friends know of the sometime horrific acts they are experiencing from being bullied. As statistics shows (stopbullying.gov) over one out of five youth are being bullied in the U.S. This includes a high 28%, 1 out of 5 youth in grades 6-12. A higher number of 30% of youth admitted to bullying others.
Bullying including cyber-bullying tears down the youth, which often results in youth feeling depressed, isolation and skipping school. This upcoming TV series “Jack Wentworth- The Real Belt,” which focuses on the topics of bullying and race relations; can be a visual, media tool to help encourage and build up youth as they watch it together with their family or teachers in school. The educational, messages can also help youth who are bullying others, see the harm they are projecting on others; and through discussions, obtain the help they need to deter bullying behaviors. Bullying not only occurs in the United States, it also occurs throughout the world. Your donation can have a great impact in helping to make a difference in strengthening our youth.
