"When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don't stoop to their level. No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high." - Michelle Obama
In honor of October's National Bullying Prevention Month, STOMP Out Bullying™, the leading national nonprofit dedicated to changing the culture for all students, calls on the nation to support their mission by raising awareness around the need to develop a society focused on kindness and inclusivity.
"We have always been an organization dedicated to spreading kindness and preventing bullying and cyberbullying. However, this year, we are encouraging communities, youth, students and society to use their voice to make bullying history," said Ross Ellis, CEO and Founder of STOMP Out Bullying™. "This October, we mark 14 years as an organization. I never want to see another child in pain," added Ms. Ellis. "And I never want to hear the words, 'I want to die.'"
The first Monday in October, October 7th, has been designated as World Day of Bullying Prevention. On this day, STOMP Out Bullying™ will partner with California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) for the first time to host a nationwide fundraiser. CPK will donate 20% of net purchases* on food and beverage (tax, tip, gift cards and retail items excluded) on World Day of Bullying Prevention, October 7, 2019. Patrons who show a copy of the promotional materials or verbally mentions the fundraiser will be included. Please use your voice at California Pizza Kitchen this year to make bullying history!
