The heart is a big role in Rise Against Bullying. Here in Justin's words. "I started shaping my hands into a form of a heart at the age of thirteen and this is what it means to me. I knew from the atmosphere of the lack of love I was receiving from fellow students. I just simply wanted to give back and remind others that "I loved them for who they were". Only wishing for the love to be returned which inspired me to create this logo, That's why the negative words are at the bottom of the logo and the positive ones are at the top to symbolize that things get better.
RISE AGAINST BULLYING IS A MOVEMENT TO DEMONSTRATE HOW BULLYING HAS BECOME A HUGE PROBLEM AROUND THE WORLD.
We will provide information & offer advice on how to overcome situations and avoid bullying.
REAL LIFE STORIES
We give you real stories and life experiences along with information about what to do if you get bullied, how bullying affects the world and how to face the issues.
Starting this movement has made me acutely aware of the plague we call bullying. It's happening around us more often than we actually realize.
All of the horrible things that we discovered by reading the stories sent to us, and talking to many victims has made us even more determined to make a positive difference in this world.
Justin Preston began a small movement online after the suicide of Jamie Hubley, calling it Rise Against Bullying. A victim of bullying his entire life, he had seen the count continue to rise and decided to step forward and do something positive about it. What started as a small local campaign in the Fort Erie area has now grown to a global community online, over 28,000 on Facebook, thousands more on Twitter, and he has posted some very personal videos on his YouTube channel. Overcoming panic and anxiety and a deep fear of public speaking and appearing in front of crowds plus damage from years of bullying and homophobia, he now regularly tours with other anti-bullying crusaders to schools and community events.
To have more media interviews and to also be able to use my voice for the voiceless. Bullying is dear to my heart and no longer can put up with negativity. Not enough people hear the positive and it's a goal of mine to change this.
"Don't listen to those that say you'll never be anything in life because you could be a STAR,
just believe in yourself"
