Inspired Fundraising

UNI: Babson College's Summer Entrepreneurship Program

Posted: 7/31/2013

We are a group of young entrepreneurs named UNI. We are a non-profit organization in that we give all our profits to charity. In the case we choose PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. We feel particularly connected to this cause because many of us have been bullied before and have first-hand experience with it.

The purpose of our business is to raise awareness for bullying. We do this by selling certain products. We sell coloring changing water bottles to represent being the change and making a difference. We also sell pencils which say “Erase bullying. Write your own story!” and stickers that have our logo on them. Additionally we created a pamphlet that explains our business, outlines some shocking statistics, explains the different types of bullying, and then explains how you can help stop bullying. We thought this would be good to hand out along with the products. One thing that we are really proud of is our bullying awareness video. We created, filmed, and edited the entire thing. We are hoping that this would be a good addition to promoting our cause.

Be a Buddy . . . Not a Bully

Posted: 6/25/2013

Dear PACER!

We are Junior Girl Scout Troops. We are currently in 5th grade and just finished working on our Bronze Award. Our subject was bullying. Our slogan was, “Be a Buddy… Not a Bully.” We used your website as a guideline for our project.

We had a week-long event at our school. (Be a Buddy… Not a Bully week). Every day we would visit different classrooms from K- 3rd and do puppet shows, or skits and a presentation about bullying. Everyone in our school took a pledge and received a “Buddy” bracelet with our slogan. We also had an assembly presentation and did several skits. We also made a “quilt” that now hangs in the 5th grade hall as a reminder to all.

Every year our school has a Family Dance. The money raised always gets donated to a charity or cause. Because of our project it was decided that money would go to – Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center- this year. So THANK YOU for all the work that you do. We hope that in some way we have helped to make a difference.

Glenwood MS “Midnight Madness” Event—Family Fun To Build Community and Raise Funds!

Posted: 5/20/2013

Midnight Madness is the biggest school event of the year and almost all of the students at Glenwood Middle School participate! The teachers, student's parents and custodial staff volunteer their time to make this fundraiser event possible. A huge portion of the community, the students' immediate family, comes to Glenwood Middle School to help support the fundraiser and to be involved in the fun! There are student basketball games going on all afternoon and into night, silent auctions, head shaving (where money is donated to a previous student's Relay for Life Team), plenty of food and smoothies to buy, faces painting and so much more!

One of our biggest events is the Team USA and Team America basketball games. These games are adapted for those students who may need some changes, such as wheel chairs or a different kind of basketball hoop, in the game to be successful. Our adapted PE teacher organizes these teams of students to work with and support our students that need adapted physical education. The energy is amazing at this event and there is always a strong feeling of community support and excitement.

Midnight Madness raises money for different organizations every year, as the students play in basketball games until midnight on the day of the after-school portion of Midnight Madness. This year we decided the theme should be "Stand Up, Don't Stand By", which brought us to the decision to have the major portion of our fundraiser raise money for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center!

The guidance counselors gave seminars to all of the students in the school about bullying and how others should be treated, which is a big focus in our school. During this in-class session the counselors took pictures of every student holding a sign, which they made, that said what they would do if they saw someone being bullied. These pictures were played in a slide show at the front of the school during Midnight Madness, and they were also hung all along the hallways near the gym and cafeteria.

Some students wrote things like "I will change the subject" or "I will stand up for the victim". The school and community always comes together to put on an amazing Midnight Madness event each year, and this year we were very excited to have a strong focus on the serious problem of bullying.

We hope that this focus has impacted our students to stand up against bullying.

SPERIAMO (ITALIAN for “LET’S HOPE”)

Posted: 3/19/2013

Dear PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center,

My name is Alex. I am a 10th grader in a Connecticut school. I have been selling T-shirts that I designed for a cause that is very important to me. Enclosed, please find my initial donation and a sample of my T-shirt.

I felt that the best way to support the bullying prevention movement was to reach out to the strongest bullying prevention center in our country.

For the most part we are all really lucky. Most of us have not seen bullying at its peak. With that, we have all seen it to some extent and we are all guilty of letting it happen; too scared to say anything or just unsure of the real impact it can cause. I am hoping to take a stand against bullying by selling my T-shirts and raise money to help those three million kids that have been bullied this year.

Thank you and I hope to donate to your organization in the future.

Sincerely, Alex

To order Alex’ T-shirt, visit the ZAZZLE website
