Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know about the Anti-Bullying Campaign Party For Autism is doing for children with special needs. Here is the excerpt written on our website:
"“Children with special needs are ten times more likely to be bullied than other kids.” This statistic is what made our CEO, Bree Law, start Party For Autism. After witnessing a classmate be pushed around and humiliated on a high school bus without anyone stepping in to stop the violent acts, Law knew that she had to do something, not only for her classmate, but for other people with special needs that are bullied on a daily basis, and have no one to turn to. Then rose the “Your Hand Marks are Permanent” Campaign, that will be starting at UNC Charlotte the week of April 23rd. Posters will be hung around the university’s campus, as well as an awareness wall in the student union that will display the signatures of students who vow to bring awareness to the issue."
This campaign will be going on all year, and hopefully the years to come to bring awareness and hopefully a solution to this problem. As CEO of Party For Autism, I would like to invite all of my fellow bloggers to publicly join our campaign, the best way us bloggers know how: by picture!
Here are the instructions:
1. Take a picture of yourself with a painted hand mark on your face (the paint can be any color), like so...
2. Send the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and say that you give us permission to use your picture of artofbeingcool.blogspot.com and partyforautism.org.
And that's it!
I appreciate in advance anyone who vows to join our campaign. This awareness will hopefully show these children that they are not alone in their every day struggles.
If we get more than 50 bloggers to join our campaign by May 30th, we will send 1 child with special needs to our week long summer camp, Camp Darrell FOR FREE!
