On October 1st, which kicked off National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, the staff of VoiceNation, the industry leader in live answering and virtual receptionist services, donned blue shirts in support of STOMP Out Bullying (the signature program of Love Our Children USA™) and its initiative Blue Shirt Day™ World Day of Bullying Prevention.
VoiceNation is helping Love Our Children USA™, a national non-profit organization working to prevent and fight all forms of violence and neglect against children, spread the word and campaign to STOMP Out Bullying™.
According to Love Our Children USA™, “One out of four kids are bullied and depending on the age group, up to 40 percent of students say they have been digitally harassed. Nine out of 10 LGBT students experienced harassment at school and online and eight percent of students miss at least one day of class per month for fear of bullies.”
“We wore blue as a sign of solidarity in an effort to make October 1st the day that bullying prevention is heard around the world. We encouraged like-minded individuals and businesses to support the cause and learn what can be done to help,” noted Jay Reeder, VoiceNation founder.
