BulliesOut’s Go Purple campaign is our biggest community awareness campaign. As bullying affects 1 in 2 young people and 1 in 3 adults, we all know someone who has been affected by it. Bullying creates a culture of fear and has a negative impact on everyone involved. Being bullied can seriously affect a person’s mental health and their confidence, self-esteem, social and academic well-being.
For young people, bullying is no longer confined to the school playground, cafeteria, hallways, or the walk home from school. The newest form of bullying is online bullying, which is bullying through the use of electronic media and devices, such as e-mail, text messages, Social Media, and other online platforms. The online environment is a place where people may have threatening messages sent to them or embarrassing things said about them, over which they may feel they have no control.
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.
With your help we can 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.
We have all the resources that you need to help your event go as smoothly as possible. All of which can be downloaded below or you can request by calling 029 2049 2169 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
