Yesterday we posted an article bringing awareness to bullying in light of the tragic story of eighteen-year-old Tyler Clementi who committed suicide after being tormented by his peers. Greyson Chance and Ellen DeGeneres have both publically spoken out against bullying, bringing attention to a subject that can no longer be ignored and must be addressed.
Greyson Chance Web has since joined the fight to bring awareness to the subject by reaching out to our readers, asking that you too take a stand!
We are starting our official The CHANCE to Stop Bullying challenge on Twitter. There are two parts to this challenge, first show your support against bullying and take stand by trending the topic #TheChanceToStopBullying on Twitter. Trend it today and everyday to show that you are against bullying and will stand up against it! The second part is, when you see someone being bullied, whether it is at school or over the internet (Cyberbullying) stand up and let them know, “IT’S NOT OKAY”.
Bullies attempt to humiliate and torment others to make themselves feel better and feel “cool”. If we take a stand against bullies and let them know that what they are doing is “not cool” and not okay, they will stop!
Now is the time (our CHANCE) to STOP bullying.
Trend the topic #TheChanceToStopBullying and stand up to bullying!
