On August 1, a new national anti-bullying website went online — with the Humanity Project as a core member. The respected Sears retail chain has organized a new Internet destination for families who deal with bullying issues. You’ll find the site at this link: Sears.com/teamup. The campaign is called “Team Up to Stop Bullying.” The home page offers links to uplifting stories about anti-bullying campaigns, statistics about bullying — even a help line to call for assistance. (That number is 1-855-201-2121. Or you can text 20121 with the keyword “121help.”) A bit lower on the page, you’ll find a link to the Humanity Project and other anti-bullying organizations at the “Team Up Member Directory”: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/dap_10153_12607_DAP_anti-bullying-member-directory?adCell=W3 . The Humanity Project was among the nonprofits contacted originally by Sears when they began to plan this new website and we’re among 50 or so groups around the country now listed by Sears. We’re proud to be part of this effort and applaud the company for doing something positive for families. If you’re reading this blog before August 11, you even can find a discount shopping coupon at the Team Up site. This will give 15% off apparel, with 5% of each purchase going to anti-bullying nonprofits such as the Humanity Project. Surf over to the new Sears Team Up site when you get a free moment — and please, let friends and family who may deal with bullying problems know that there’s a new place online for help. Thanks!
