Summary

Children participate in workshops that teach them how to stand up for themselves to prevent bullying by becoming the characters in a book, Be A Superhero By Saying No To Bullying. The book is personalized with photos taken of participating children in superhero costumes. The children also write poems and learn songs sung to familiar tunes with anti-bullying messages. It is our wish that this form of creative expression will lead to less bullying in schools and will impact many youth.

Challenge

Over 160,000 children skip school each day in the United States for fear of being bullied. Do The Write Thing wants to implement a citywide anti-bullying program in the District of Columbia.

Solution

Do The Write Thing wants to print 5,000 copies of its anti-bullying book and distribute them to public school children in the District so they will know what to do if they are bullied.

Long-Term Impact

Do The Write Thing wants to create a citywide kindness movement in the District of Columbia public schools and have students participate in kindness challenges. Teaching children how to be kind significantly reduces bullying.
