For many decades, Sears has been a brand that people all over America know and trust. So the Humanity Project was pleased when the Sears home office contacted us recently to ask that we join their new national anti-bullying initiative called, “Team Up To Stop Bullying.” As the folks at Sears wrote to us, “I’m contacting you on behalf of Sears because your organization has been identified as a key leader in the anti-bullying movement.” We believe that the Humanity Project indeed is a leader, both here in South Florida and nationally. You’ll be hearing more in the media about the Sears campaign when it rolls out just before school begins next fall. But for now, we thought you’d like to know about this welcome new recognition for our organization. The Humanity Project can use your help as we continue to tackle this issue. Our acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program is available for free to elementary schools in South Florida — and parts of the program can be used anywhere to supplement in-school anti-bullying efforts. If you know about a school that could use our program, please let us know. Or even better, tell the school about us and give them our website address so they can contact us. Of course, we’d also love you to become a Humanity Project member or a sponsor of our work. As with any nonprofit group, funding is our life blood. To join, just go to the Join/Donate page on this site. To sponsor, go to the Contact page and email us or give us a call. Teamwork is required if we’re really going to make bullying a thing of the past. We think the new Sears national team is one more step in the right direction.
