(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.)

See Our Program For Yourself

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.

Bob Knotts | May 2, 2014

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.

THP Service Learning

Bob Knotts | April 25, 2014

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.

Our Anti-bullying Hand Sign

Bob Knotts | March 8, 2014

Have you seen it yet? The video? If not, you must … and then pass it along to a young child you love. We’re talking about our short video about the cool hand sign created by the Humanity Project as part of our Anti-bullying Through The Arts program. (We invented this hand sign in 2012 as one additional program element intended to help our elementary school children remember the main message we repeat during our in-school visits: “Bullying hurts everyone in this school … and it takes everyone to stop it!”

Anti-bullying Through The Arts

Bob Knotts | February 8, 2014

The Humanity Project’s nationally acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program is special — we reach out and connect bystander students with bullying victims, helping the uninvolved kids to understand why their involvement is essential. As we always tell the elementary school kids who see our program, “Bullying hurts everyone in this school — and it takes everyone to stop it!” We have a new video we hope you’ll watch, just 60 seconds long. In that single minute, our Gabriela Pinto tells you her thoughts about helping us present Anti-bullying Through The Arts to thousands of children. More than 15,000 young students so far and counting. We hope you’ll check out the video and pass along the link. And also let your local elementary school know about the Humanity Project’s terrific program, please.
