October is National Bullying Prevention Month and we believe that bullying ends with YOU! Nationwide, 160,000 children stay home from school each day to avoid being bullied - and the effects can be life-long, even tragic. Bullying victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University. Suicide rates have doubled over the past 10 years and bullying is now at crisis levels.

Now in its 2nd year, the #BeAFriend is a fundraising event benefiting Raising Be.YOU.tiful Butterflies, a nonprofit organization working to empower, educate, and motivate girls between the ages of 4-21 by transforming self-doubt into self-love through dialogue about things that matter every day. Held during National Bullying Prevention month. The goal of the event is to promote awareness about bullying and show support for those who have been bullied, uniting the community in a campaign to keep all youth safe from bullying. There will be opportunities to have fun and learn more about bullying, its effects and how to help put a stop to it. We believe that in order to end bullying, an entire community must work together towards a solution, hope to see you there!

 

 

Raising Beautiful Butterflies, Inc. ("RBB"),  founded in 2017 and established as a 501c3 organization in 2019.  The organization was started to serve girls between the ages 4-21 who are exhibiting at risk behaviors that could take a negative effect on their lives.  At RBB, we have a passion and drive to introduce young girls to Christian values in a way they can understand and digest, so they can walk passionately and boldly in who God has created them to be and value their whole selves.  We are dedicated to empowering a generation of young queens,  to be bold,  authentic leaders in their lives,  school and communities by transforming self-doubt into self-love through dialogue about things that matter Every day. Young queens are bombarded with messages in the media that attack what she is NOT and we work every day to help her love the skin SHE IS IN and who SHE IS; to see that in herself and inspire that in others.
