Ever since the first season of Pretty Little Liars, the girls have been plagued by the ultimate digital bully, ‘A.’ Sigh, if only they were equipped with The Bully Text…
With back-to-school season upon us, and bullies — like ‘A’ — unfortunately back in the hallways and classrooms, statistics like these arise: An estimated 160,000 kids skip school each day to avoid being bullied. 1 in 5 high school students say they have been victims of bullying. 1 in 10 students DROP OUT of school because they are bullied.
Because of this, Do Something is asking you to be a part of a social change. With The Bully Text, you can use your cell phone as a tool against bullying by simulating scenarios where teasing becomes an issue. According to DoSomething.org, “the way that participants respond to the scenarios affects the rest of their day and shows them how stepping up or walking away from different scenarios can not only affect others, but themselves as well.”
