#StandingUp To Bullies Giveaway

Bullying is an issue very close to my heart and we need to stand up against bullying.  Did you know that 160,000 U.S. students stay home from school each day because they are so scared of being bullied?  Every child deserves to get an education in a safe environment without fear of bullies.

Standing Up is a heart-warming family movie with an important anti-bullying message.  The movie is based on the beloved young adult novel and directed by the acclaimed D.J. Caruso.  Standing up follows two kids who get bullied by a vicious summer camp prank.  Left together on an island, their adventure begins when they decide not to be victims and Stand Up.  

One of the things we can do to understand the problem and discuss solutions is to be inspired.  That's what this movie does.  Get the DVD August 20th!

Check out the Standing Up blog app.  

  • Watch the trailer.
  • Do you stand up to bullies?  Or do you let them intimidate you and others?  Take the quiz to see where you stand.
  • Beat The Bully - tips and tricks to beat the bullies in your life

      • Take the Anti-bullying Pledge! (click on PDF image above to print)  Read it, sign it and hang it somewhere you can always see it as a reminder.  Bullying can effect even the strongest of people.  I have my pledge hanging on the fridge.
      Besides the movie's charm, it also carries a powerful message.  After watching, talk with your kids about some of the life lessons in the movie and encourage them to ask questions.  
      You can also get the stunning soundtrack from Varese Sarabande Records September 3rd on iTunes and in stores September 24th.
