Tomorrow, March 16th has been designated a national day of action against bullying and violence here in Australia. Young people subjected to bullying often find it difficult to speak up and awareness is being raised as featured on tonight’s episode of The Project, here in Australia to encourage young people to find their voice and come forward to report bullying and find support as soon as it happens.
Tonight several famous Australian personalities came out to advocate about speaking up against all bullying despite fear, despite embarrassment, despite shame. Featured was heartbreaking footage of the parents and sister of young Dolly Everett who took her life by suicide recently after being bullied. Before dying she sketched the following drawing :
Dolly’s parents are asking for support… They wish to raise funds by creating a foundation Dolly’s Dream….. the links to their Facebook page can be found via the Anti-Bullying Foundation website link below.
No young person should have to struggle with this alone. Beautiful young souls are dying. We must do all we can to raise awareness and make sure this stops. Please help where you can to support this important cause and let young people know they are not alone and can speak up.
