STOMP Out Bullying and Blue Shirt Day

We at iCarol are excited to welcome STOMP Out Bullying&#0153 to the iCarol family, just in time for National Bullying Prevention Month in October. STOMP Out Bullying&#0153 is a leading national anti-bullying and cyberbullying organization for kids and teens in the United States.

STOMP Out Bullying&#0153 began in 2005 to address the issue of bullying and cyberbullying. They focus on reducing and preventing bullying and cyberbullying and other forms of digital abuse, and educating against racism, hate, and homophobia. Through a number of programs and initiatives, STOMP Out Bullying&#0153 teaches effective solutions on how to respond to bullying. They also provide help for those in need and at risk of suicide.

Bullying should not be considered a “rite of passage” or a normal and acceptable part of childhood. According to STOMP Out Bullying&#0153, kids who are bullied are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Bullying can cause school absence and decreased academic participation – including dropping out of school entirely.

Bullies themselves are at risk, too. According to STOMP Out Bullying&#0153, bullies are more likely to abuse alcohol or drugs when they become adolescents or adults. They are at increased risk of being involved in criminal activity, and are more likely to be abusive to their spouse/partner or children as adults.

On the first Monday of October each year we celebrate Blue Shirt Day® World Day of Bullying Prevention to show solidarity and make that the day that bullying prevention is heard around the world to bring awareness to the issue of bullying. By creating a “sea of blue” in our schools, businesses, and out in the community, we’ll see just how many people wish to stand up against bullying of all kinds. On October 6th you can wear any blue shirt, or you can purchase one. Remember, “If we all stand up as one, no one stands alone.”
