Domestic Violence Awareness

Domestic violence is a growing problem in our world today, and it’s important to help people not only to be aware of the problem, but to know what to do if they ever find themselves in a bad situation.

To help promote domestic violence awareness, try having a seminar for your local community. During the seminar, you can address exactly what domestic violence is, and what people can do when a situation becomes violent.

Making domestic violence awareness pamphlets to hand out is a good way to help people understand domestic violence and how they can help. You can also put emergency numbers or help hotlines that people can call in case of an emergency on our purple ribbon notecards, and pass these out to people during the seminar.

You can also help promote domestic violence awareness by passing out simple items, such as purple ribbon stickers, purple wristbands, purple ribbon pencils, hats, and so on. Remind people that they should use these items frequently, as a way to let other people know that they support an end to domestic violence. Not only will this help raise awareness of the issues, but it can also signal to someone who is dealing with domestic abuse that they have found someone safe and sympathetic that they can talk to.

Domestic violence won’t stop until more people are aware that it’s a problem, and until those who are in violent situations learn that they can get help.

Supporting Those With Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Awareness

Cancer is one of the most difficult diseases to have, and quite often the treatments for it are almost harder to deal with than the disease itself. October is breast cancer awareness month, and though it’s always good to promote awareness, it’s also a good idea to help those who are struggling with breast cancer. Here are a few ideas to help you to do both.

Visit Breast Cancer Patients at the Hospital

Even if you don’t personally know someone who has breast cancer, you can brighten anyone’s day by visiting them at the hospital. We have beautiful floating pink crystal ribbon necklaces, baseball caps, pink ribbon earrings, coffee mugs, and other items that you could take someone as a reminder that they are not alone.

Make Cards

A homemade card always makes people feel better, so why not get a group of friends together and make some special homemade cards for people with breast cancer? This way you can help promote awareness of breast cancer and help the people who have it as well. We have pink ribbon notecards, or you could use plain stationary and decorate the front with some of our pink ribbon stickers.

Make a Care Package

If you know someone who has breast cancer, you can find out what some of their favorite things are and make them a small care package. In it, you might want to include some fun accessories, like some of our pink ribbon socks or a pink ribbon iPhone cover. You can drop the package off when you go to visit, or you could even make care packages to deliver to people anonymously. This would be a great group activity to help promote awareness as well.

There are endless ways to not only help promote breast cancer awareness, but to support those who have breast cancer while you do it.

PTA Red Ribbon Week Anti-Bully Ideas

PTA Red Ribbon Week, Anti-Bully Campaign Ideas
It seems like bullying is a continually growing problem, and PTA Red Ribbon Week, which focuses on good choices, ending bulling, and saying no to drugs, is the perfect time to help your school become more aware. Use our special anti-bullying stickers and signs to help your school put a stop to bullying.

Ideas to Promote Anti-Bullying
Set up a table at the entrance to the school, or in the cafeteria, since these are high traffic areas. At the tables, you can pass out flyers and information about how to prevent bullying. You can also put up an assortment of anti-bullying balloons to draw attention to PTA Red Ribbon Week, and to help spread the message that bullying is not something that will be tolerated at your school.

Stickers are another great way to promote awareness about bullying during PTA Red Ribbon Week. Try passing out anti-bullying stickers to all of your students and staff as a way to draw their attention to the problem. Students can put stickers on their shirts, their notebooks, or on their cellphones.

You can also pass out pins, wristbands, and lanyards during PTA Red Ribbon Week, which can be worn daily by students and staff as a constant reminder to prevent bullying. Awareness is the first step in prevention. The more you can help your students and staff to be aware of bullying, the more likely it is that someone will say something when bullying does occur.

PTA Red Ribbon Week is a good place to start, but keep anti-bullying stickers and wristbands handy, so that your school can truly be a “bully free” zone all year.

School Anti-Bullying Programs Strong Thanks to Anti Bully Grants

Many states are providing Anti Bully Grants to build strong school anti-bullying programs. Here are some ideas for holding an successful anti-bullying rally at your school:

Having all the students come together is the best way to get the anti-bullying message out.  An assembly is great for making sure that everyone gets the word to band against bullying so that their school will be a safe environment for learning and growing. To prepare for your school’s anti-bullying rally, you can purchase an anti-bullying kit that has all the items you need to have a successful event that stays top of mind for all attendees long after the event is over.

 Anti-Bullying Kit

The anti-bullying kit includes anti-bullying silicone bracelets for every student to wear and a roll of No Bullying stickers for notebooks and phones, and Stand Up, Speak out anti-bullying bracelets and anti-bullying pins for school staff, as well as anti-bullying lanyards.  To decorate your school’s rally, the anti-bullying kit also includes banners and No Bully balloons.

Anti-bullying programs help students gain empathy and self-control while keeping them safe.  With more and more schools instituting zero tolerance bully policies, and more states giving out anti bully grants,  school anti-bullying programs continue to grow stronger. Anti-bullying kits give schools the materials they need to set up a successful and memorable rally that will set the stage for a safe learning experience.

How To Have An Anti-Bullying Rally At Your School

Raising Anti-Bullying Awareness Helps Keep Kids Safe

Sadly, almost everyone has a memory of bullying, whether they were bullied, a friend was the target, or in some cases, of being a bully themselves. With the rise in school shootings and teen suicide, and with bullying becoming more prevalent than ever thanks to the internet, it’s important for kids to understand the harm that bullying causes and to have a plan of action if they are bullied. Having an anti-bullying rally in your school is a great way to get everyone together to make a pledge to end bullying for good! There are many anti-bullying items you can use as to decorate your rally and use as giveaways to make it a big success.

Anti-Bullying Balloons

Anti-Bullying Balloons

Decorate the room where you’re having the rally with anti-bullying balloons. Hang anti-bullying banners over the doors to get everyone’s attention. The banners and balloons come in different colors, so you can set up a table with a matching tablecloth at the door to really catch everyone’s eye.

 

 

 

Anti-Bullying Bracelets

Anti-Bullying Bracelets

As students enter the rally, give each one an anti-bullying pin and anti-bullying bracelet. Encourage everyone in the school, no matter what group they hang out with, to wear the bracelet to school each day. Anti-Bullying bracelets & pins act as a reminder that bullying will not be tolerated, as well as a show of strength and support for those who’ve been bullied.  Another idea is to give out pieces of anti-bullying jewelry as students leave the rally as a reward for making a pledge to end bullying.

 

 

Anti-Bullying Stickers

Anti-Bullying Stickers

At the rally, have students and teachers share their thoughts on why it’s so important to end bullying and how everyone can do their part. At the end of the rally, give students anti-bulling stickers for their notebooks as another reminder and as encouragement to stand strong against bullying.

Good luck, and be sure to comment to let us know how your anti-bullying rally goes!
