Dear Julie,

Enclosed is a check for $437.48 for the National Bullying Prevention Center. This donation is made possible because of the efforts made by our daughter, Parker. Parker is 13 years old. Please use this donation to help support your bullying prevention program on her behalf.

Here is a little overview of Parker and her most recent project for the NBPC. In December, her school had an anti-bullying assembly. Parker was very affected by the information she learned that day and decided she needed to do more to help stop bullying in this country.  She researched a lot of information and statistics and found your program on the PACER Center website. She decided she was going to dedicate the month of February to earn money for the NBPC by selling wristbands and giving 100% of the cost to your program. She designed and ordered the wristbands herself.

On one side they read, "Every 7 minutes" to remind kids that this is an ongoing problem every single day, and on the other side they read, "Stand Up," which empowers young kids to stand up against bullying if they are targets, and to always stand up for others who are.

Parker created a display board using facts and coloring pages on your website and got overwhelming support by our school principals. She sold them at afterschool events and at school conferences and had great success.  She helped educate people who bought wristbands by telling them some of the alarming bullying statistics and was surprised by the many bullying stories shared with her by students and parents. This project really opened her eyes and the eyes of others to the dangers of bullying.

Thank you for all your hard work. We know that through programs like yours, we will bring an end to bullying once and for all.

Sincerely,

By: Annie
