Saw something today that caught my attention.
The Warwick University Rowing Club in England is raising money and awareness for bullying in schools. Specifically, they would like to raise awareness about prejudice and particularly homophobia. To do it? Taking off their clothes, of course!
Now, if you’re new to the blog, you don’t know this: I’ve visited schools in 25 states across the country this year, reading to over 100,000 children my book, Pete the Popcorn. Pete the Popcorn has been hailed by teachers, parents and media nationwide as a subtle anti-bullying book for young children. Learn more about the whole campaign at www.PeteThePopcorn.com
What strikes me is this— if I could have just thrown my clothes in the wind and raised attention for bullying that way, what the heck have I gone through all of this book stuff for?!?
Seriously, I guess anything folks can do to raise money and awareness all adds up. Some of us have brains for books. Other have bodies for… well… this. But I think all of our hearts are in the right place.
