 Chères Mme Finn et Mme Palmer,               

                Merci beaucoup d’avoir organisé l’assemblée formidable de taxage.  Le “D.J.” nous a montré d’excellentes stratégies pour arrêter le taxage.  C’était amusant d’entendre et de chanter les chansons rhythmiques!  Avec ce qu’on a appris on a écrit une lettre à une amie qui avait des problèmes de taxage.  On a créé des posters contre le taxage.  On va aussi faire du drame.               

                Merci beaucoup pour ce spectacle exceptionnel!

 Dear Ms. Finn and Ms. Palmer,       

                Thank you very much for organizing the great assembly of bullying. The “DJ” has shown excellent strategies to stop bullying. It was fun to hear and sing rhythmic songs! With what we learned we wrote a letter to a friend who had problems with bullying. We created posters against bullying. We will also do drama.

                Thank you for this exceptional show!

Bullying Prevention in Toronto

Yesterday we visited Earl Beatty Public School in Toronto and had a great day presenting three ‘Stand Up Against Bullying’ assemblies. One of the points we focused on was confidence. You need confidence to stand up to bullies or even to talk to someone about what’s going on. Have a look at the video I made in front of the school.

Don’t Keep It Inside, Tell Someone You Trust!

Why do so many of us clam up when someone says or does something mean to us? That’s how bullying can start. I can tell you, there have been times in the past when I lacked confidence. I would question myself. Did I say something wrong? Did I give a mean impression? Honestly, we all lack confidence at certain times. We all have to build ourselves up sometimes.

One of the best ways to deal with this is by deciding not to keep these thoughts inside. Talk about it with someone you trust. Write down your ideas in a journal. Share with someone you are sure you can depend on, but other than that, keep it private.

This can really help to deal with bullying situations in your own life.  


Bullying and The Haiti Earthquake Disaster

Bullying is a huge problem in our country and in many countries. The people of Haiti are suffering desperately because of a natural disaster.
We can help deal with bullying, but we also need to be willing to help people in critical times like this in Haiti. There are many ways to help people in the Haiti earthquake zone. Google has a link on the Google home page.
Save The Children is only one of the many organizations that is working feverishly to help.
We at Stand Up Now are donating part of our proceeds to Save The Children. You can learn what Save The Children is doing by clicking on this link Save The Children

Please do what you can to help minimize bullying and also help those in Haiti.

Looking for Actors for Bullying Prevention Programs

We are searching for people to play various roles in scenarios which will be produced into videos to be used in bullying prevention programs. Do you know someone who would be interested?
Actors who participate in these videos can really help to make a difference in the life of a bullied child.
