BENEFIT CONCERT AND DANCE

Posted: 3/15/2013

National Bullying Prevention Center,

On behalf of the our School of Dance and Performing Arts we would like to present this donation. Every year we hold a Benefit Concert to raise money for a charity or organization. Students and instructors have been donating their time and efforts since September in preparation for our annual event. Since bullying has recently affected our area significantly, students agreed that supporting bullying prevention would be the perfect cause this year. We are honored to present this donation to you.

Just to give you a little background about our School of Dance and Performing Arts, we are a small dance and drama school in western New York. We have less than 150 students, of which about 40 performed in different styles of dance. We held a "Donation Welcome" concert on Sunday afternoon and had a wonderful turnout. A beautiful space was donated for us to hold our concert which also helped with its success. Our annual Benefit Concert is one of the events about which our students get most excited. They feel so appreciative to be able to give back to the community by sharing something they love to do – dance!!

Sincerely,

School of Dance and Performing Arts

PARTY WITH A PURPOSE

Posted: 3/15/2013

Dear National Bullying Prevention Center,

Enclosed is my son’s birthday invitation. Instead of having his friends bring birthday gifts, we asked each child to donate $5 to the National Bullying Prevention Center. We were able to raise $155 at the party, with a matching donation from my husband and I.

My son encountered issues with another boy early in the school year. Things have gotten better, but he is still aware of the bullying and how bad it feels. We hope that this donation helps in your efforts to make life easier on the millions of kids out there who face it every day.

Please accept this donation in honor my son’s school, Grade 4C

DANCING FOR DONATIONS

Posted: 3/15/2013

To the National Bullying Prevention Center,

This past February, our Student Council hosted our annual SnoBall Dance. It has been a tradition to donate part of the proceeds from the dance admission tickets to a charitable organization. This year's theme was "We R Who We R," a tribute to embracing our differences in an effort to stop bullying and emotional issues associated with it.

I am happy to send along this check to your great organization. Our council hopes that you are able to use the funds to help as many young people as possible deal with the issues associated with bullying.

Thank you for all of the work your organization does on behalf of the youth.

Sincerely,
Bay Port High School

CLIMBING THE TALLEST MOUNTAIN

Posted: 1/7/2013

In September of 2012, Nicki Francis will join five other women from New Jersey who will climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Located on the border of Tanzania and Kenya, the mountain is Africa’s highest peak at 19,341 feet above sea level. To heighten the experience, each of the climbers came up with a unique way to bring awareness to the organizations that have helped their families in a personal way.

Nicki chose PACER Center. She is climbing to bring out a voice of courage to help people recognize the many struggles families live with every day. She is also climbing for her son who has sensory processing disorder and her daughter who was recently diagnosed with dyslexia. She wants people to understand that things happen for a reason and these life changes have only given her a stronger perspective on what it means to live and accept the life you have been given. “I climb for the courage to end bullying,” she writes on the team’s website. “Young people need courage every day to be true to who they really are… I am climbing for the courage to be the voice of the children I work with every day who are truly amazing but have been dealt a very unfair hand in life.”

Together, these six women are setting out on a journey with the hope to gain a voice in order to recognize the many organizations that have done so much and continue to give full support to families in need.
