The Bully by Jonah Maxwell

Description:

Jonah and his family moved to Chicago from Ireland when he was in elementary school, and he was the youngest and the shortest in his class. In fifth grade, Jonah was playing basketball during school with some kids who were mean and he realized, “I don’t want to hang out with these kids anymore.” After several years of experiencing and witnessing bullying, he started thinking about how bullying affects kids and schools.

Jonah is “really big into film,” and it doesn’t hurt that his dad is a filmmaker and his mom is a dance instructor. Friends from school and his dance class shared some of their bullying experiences by anonymously writing their stories on strips of paper. Jonah took those home and started creating a script from those experiences and his own.

This video demonstrates the impact of bullying on everyone because, as Jonah says, “If you are not part of the solution, you can still be part of the problem.” It also draws attention to cyberbullying, in which the kids who bully others are often faceless. It shows that anyone can participate in bullying behavior, and that the experience is very frightening.

Jonah really believes kids are getting it. He believes this video is making an impact on students from all over the Chicago area and beyond- it has reached Ireland, UK, Australia, and Indonesia. Since creating the video, there have been more than 540,000 views. Schools are showing the film in gym and health classes, and coaches are showing it to their teams. Jonah’s mother is in awe at how much support they have gotten.

Go ahead and share this film! We want everyone to see it.

MATT - A film about the power of never giving up

Description:

This is a film about MATT who was given a 5% chance of survival at birth. Not only has he survived but he has become an inspiration for an entire community

Matthew Tapia was born 3 months pre-mature, a mere 1.5 pounds. Doctors gave him a 5% chance of survival, and if he was able to defy the odds he would barely be able to speak or even walk. 18 years later, Matt is a senior at Santa Monica High School. Gregarious and defiant, Matt has used his stubbornness to not only survive but put himself on track to attend college next year. Matt is a huge sports fan and dreams of being a play by play guy one day. Heading into his senior year, Matt took advantage of an opportunity offered to him by a brave coach and some open minded kids, and joined the football team. Matt didn't miss a practice all year. The indomitable spirit and positive attitude that Matt exuded inspired a team in search of an identity. They rallied around Matt, made him part of the team, and hung out with him after school. For a kid who battled a stigma of mental illness his whole life, he had now found a band of brothers he can call family. The team had a winning season and marched into the 2nd round of the playoffs, but this season was about more than wins and losses, it was about overcoming obstacles.

INVISIBLE-Hunter Hayes (Cover by Marina Morgan)

Description:

Hey all!! So every once in a while an artist comes out with a song that just touches your heart. That's exactly what "Invisible" by Hunter Hayes did to me! This song is just so beautiful and the lyrics really tell a story. Not only did I want to cover this song but It also inspired me to send out a message. It's hard in today's society to feel accepted, whether it's being bullied by others or even yourself.. This needs to change everyone is special. I hope this song and video touches you as much as it moved me the first time I heard it!
