unityDay_Success

Unity Day was a great orange success

On Wed., Oct 22nd, the world came together to unite against bullying!

Here are a few Unity Day highlights:

  • At Ramstein Intermediate School, the lunchroom served orange colored food and a military unit provided 900 orange cookies for students. Even their jaguar mascot, Spots, dressed in orange.
  • Heritage High School in California had their 2nd annual Unity Flash Mob.
  • More than 550 students from Washington Elementary School in Washington celebrated by joining hands around their school and reciting their bully pledge.
  • AD Johnston High School in Michigan created an art piece to be displayed in their school. Each student, staff and board member decorated a popsicle stick and all the sticks were put into one piece of art to show that we are all individuals and together we create a larger beautiful piece of art.

Other celebrations across the country included a mix-it up lunch, pep rallies, paper chains of unity, and morning announcements. Unity Day celebrations also went international in Argentina, Mexico, Taiwan, United Kingdom and Canada. Thanks again to everyone who came together this year to show one giant message of support, hope and unity. When we stand together, no one stands alone!

Tell Us Why You Care

  • I've been bullied for as long as i can remember, whether it was because of my weight,height, or some other ridiculous thing that i couldn't prevent,i always remembered how that felt and how badly i felt about myself because of the relentless bullying, NO ONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO FEEL LIKE THAT!That is why i care.

  • I care because no one cared about me. I care about changing the lives of others, because I wasn't able to change my own. I care because I know what it's like, to want, to need, someone to care.

    Christina — Minnesota
  • Every one deseves to be on this planet. They shouldn't be bullyed for who they are or what they are. There family wealth shouldn't matter it should be the way the treat peoyple, the way they are, the way they take part in this world. Bullying shouldn't spread.

  • I used to bully people my self , when i was younger & than " I walked a mile in thier shoes " & I did not like the feeling. So I stopped & tried to get my friends to stop too. I realized I'm not the only one who has feelings & watching all these young teenagers take thier beautiful life because people dont't know what to do with thier life, hurt me a lot. & Then in school I watched bully documentary , my heart dropped. Kids taking thier because nobody wants to do nothing? You should not be judged because of who you are and what you look like. Were teenagers we all make mistakes but you shouldn't get teased or judged for that. " You don't know what somebodys going through until you walk a mile in thier shoes " Bullying should stop today, kids don't have to take thier lives for somebody to notice what thier going through. I apoligize, I never knew what it felt like to be bullied until I was a victim my self.

    Pamela — NY
