(Editor’s Note: This blog was written and provided to the Humanity Project by Lisa Bonet, a writer on mental health issues. We believe it focuses on a little understood consequence of bullying. A portion of the article and a link to the full story by Ms. Bonet are included in the post below.)

Sometimes you just have to stop and say, “Thanks!” That’s what I’d like to do with this brief post. Thanks to those who make it possible for the Humanity Project to do what we do – thanks to our sponsors and community partners. If you take a look at our About page on this website, you’ll find a very interesting fact: 100% of our money goes to our programs.

A short post today about a video you really should see. Most Humanity Project friends and supporters have never had the chance to attend one of our live, in-school anti-bullying presentations. Now, though, you can view some very brief excerpts in this YouTube video.

Yes, early results are in … at last. Surveys conducted by Barry University sociology majors for the Humanity Project show that our unique I Care: Just Let Me Drive teen driver safety program works — just as we always thought it would. We also have some results from students at Royal Palm Beach High School. And those numbers tell us the same thing. I Care works!

Today, we thank our loyal friends at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. They have stepped up now as an official sponsor of our truly innovative I Care: Just Let Me Drive teen driver safety program. JDCH also renewed their longtime sponsorship of our acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program. Both programs now will be offered through their great Community Relations Department, headed up by the dynamic Milin Espino.

This week, a new video for you … So we won’t take much of your time with reading our blog. We hope you will want to check out this newest Humanity Project YouTube video, though. You’ll hear a brief discussion by one of our great student volunteers, a young high school student named Aaron. The video is only about one minute-long. In it, Aaron talks about his work on the amazing redesign of our Humanity Project website for socially isolated students, including many LGBT kids. That site is www.thp4kids.com (The Humanity Project 4 Kids). Listen to Aaron describe how much he has learned by working with the Humanity Project. We’re proud of the service learning opportunities that we’ve provided to many students — middle school and high school students, even some in elementary school. Click on the link to watch the video, please. We think you’ll enjoy it.

If you still haven’t signed up for our free monthly email newsletter, we hope this might, well, inspire you to do so now. Because the newsletter has changed, coming to you in a more concise form that also is more uplifting than ever. We’ll keep this post brief — just long enough to show you a few of the changes we’ve made to the once-a-month-only Humanity Project Newsletter. This screen capture image isn’t large enough to include the lovely photo at the top of our April 2014 newsletter. But we think this gives you the idea.

As we had noted in a recent blog, April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Since our very cool, teen-created I Care teen driver safety program is mainly about the dangers of distracted driving, we felt that another blog on this topic is a good idea. Did you know that if you take your eyes off the road for two seconds or longer, you double your chance of having a car accident? And did you know that on average your eyes are focused away from the road for five seconds when texting — and that you travel 100 yards during that time at only 55 mph? That’s like driving the length of a football field, blindfolded.
