Go Purple

This Anti-Bullying Week

and help us

Make a Difference

Nov 15th – 19th 2021

 

Go Purple is our biggest community fundraising and awareness campaign, taking place during anti-bullying week each year.  It is a chance for families, friends, schools, workplaces and communities to come together to show their support for those affected by bullying behaviour.

Bullying behaviour affects 1 in 2 young people and 1 in 3 adults, so we all know someone who has been affected by it. We need more awareness of this devastating behaviour to ensure those affected by it receive the help and support they need. More needs to be done at home, in schools and in the workplace to help those who are being bullied and also, crucially, to prevent bullying from happening in the first place. The bullying issue in our schools and workplaces is real and it is urgent. More and more young people and adults are reaching out for help. Sadly many who take that brave step feel they’re not listened to and that they simply don’t matter. But each and every one of them matters to us at BulliesOut.

By taking part in Go Purple, you will help make our voice louder and we will raise vital awareness so that nobody need suffer in isolation. We want as many people taking part in this campaign as possible and whilst we would love to raise as much money as possible to fund our vital services, it is the awareness that is achieved that is more important to us, so simply by taking part you are helping us achieve our objective. Whether you raise £10 or £1,000 it will make a great difference to our work and most importantly, we will have been exposed to many people who may have never heard of us before.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Wear It!

Hold a ‘Wear it Purple Day’ in your office, school or with family or friends and ask people to donate to wear an outfit.

Bake it Purple

Ready, Steady, Bake! You don’t need to be a Bake Off champion to hold a successful bake sale for BulliesOut.

Light it Up Purple

Light up your home or contact an iconic building or prominent landmark in your local area and see if they would light up purple for BulliesOut. Help us put a spotlight on an issue that affects so many people.

Share it

Share your fundraising photos on social media and help raise more awareness. Help us turn social media platforms purple this anti-bullying week.

Need to talk?

If you are being bullied or are concerned about someone who is, you can receive help and support from one of our trained Mentors through our e-mentoring service.

If you would like a Mentor to email you, please contact: mentorsonline@bulliesout.com

If you would rather speak to someone over the telephone, you can call Childline on: 0800 1111

For any community-related issues, such as anti-social behaviour, we would suggest contacting your landlord, the local police or your local environmental health department (where applicable), as we are unable to deal with these types of complaints.
