Together we can stop bullying.  This is our moment to get together to help and improve our schools and community, but most importantly to help raise awareness.

Bullyproof project mission is to encourage working together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages. The more awareness that we create is one step closer to putting an end to bullying! Our goal is to put an end to this crisis, to keep children of all ages safe against bullying and cyberbullying and to help educate our parents. Parents must teach their kids and teens empathy, kindness, compassion and respect and schools must do the same.

The characters, the garden and the tea party are not the focus of this event. The focus is what happens to Alice while she is in Wonderland. The characters bring challenges and the events bring questions all of which Alice must figure out. She is bullied by the Red Queen. What is critical, is the world she is in is much like the chaotic world we live in. Our youth are trying to fit in. They are searching for who they are. Like Alice, we want our youth to find out who they are and recognize their self-worth.
