Last week we told you that Greyson Chance Web had joined forces with Greyson Chance and Ellen DeGeneres to combat the growing problem of bullying. Since this time we’ve launch The Chance to Stop Bullying Campaign and have received support from Greyson himself as we stand up to bullies across the world and say “enough is enough”.
First, we’d like to thank everyone who has taken a stand along-side us and vowed to end this growing problem once in for all. The response on Twitter to our #TheChanceToStopBullying challenge has been tremendous and we really think people are starting to open there eyes to the reality of the situation. One of our long time readers who goes by the cleverly coined name, GreysonShakesIt is one of many who have joined the fight against bullying. Putting things into perspective a bit, she put together a short video highlighting some of the scary statistics surrounding bullying.
Checkout the video below GreysonShakesIt made for our #TheChanceToStopBullying campaign. Some startling statistics highlighted in the video include that in the U.K. 15-25 people commit suicide each year due to bullying. In the U.S. 1 in 3 students are involved in bullying. We are also reminded that you are not alone if you are being bullied and there are plenty of organizations and people out there that want to help.
Thanks again to everyone who has joined us and are standing up to bullying. Together we can, will and already have made a difference! Remember to show your support for the cause by Tweeting the hash tag #TheChanceToStopBullying! Don’t let up!
The CHANCE to Stop Bullying is now!
