CLF’s Unity Day shirts for 2015 arrived today. I can’t wait to give these to everyone at my school that signs a pledge against bullying. We hope to reach as many kids as possible and encourage the community to be a better and happier place for everyone to live.
On a different note, have you started reading for CLF’s National Anti-Bullying Essay Contest yet? All of these stories have powerful messages of kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. I’m excited to read all of your essays about how those messages affected you. Remember your choices are:
