MAKE A COMMITMENT
Have you been bullied? As a kid or even an adult. We would love to share your story. Maybe you just might want to write how you feel about the "Bullying" topic. It happens in schools, places of business, outside in the general public, even in families. Being different is not bad, no matter what the difference may be. No one deserves to be bullied for any reason.
Now comes the time where we ask for your help.
1. People willing to share a story or write a post about Bullying.
2. Donations for giveaways during the month.
