#SpeakOutLove…Campaign to Stop Cyberbullying

ABM_1429162509

This is a very short post, but I had to share.  So, being new to the blogging community I have jumped on board the Instagram train & have completely enjoyed all the image eye candy.  I’m mostly scanning through planner & stationery pics along with recipes & organizational tips.  There is some amazing stuff out there and the creativity that folks are sharing will knock your socks off!

While oogling all these images I came across the #SpeakOutLove campaign by a creative & fabulous IG user I have been following, @TiffanyIMA. Check out her new & beautiful style & motivational blog, “Tiffany Ima’s Thrifty Life”.)  The #SpeakOutLove campaign is being led by Instagram users @hazel_and_bean and @helloawesomeshop.  They are leading the movement to stop Cyberbullying across Instagram and all other social media genres.  Now I personally have not experienced any negative vibes through my trysts through IG & have been so grateful to any “likes” or comments that folks have shared with my posts.  The #SpeakOutLove campaign’s message of standing up against cyberbullying & not defining yourself by the opinions of others really touched me as a Mom & as a former educator.  I want to do my job to protect my own kiddos from Cyberbullying & also educate them on what to look for and how not to become a participant.  A simple sharing of the #SpeakOutLove image over IG was all I had to do to show my support so I jumped on board.

If this touches you somehow and you want to get involved hop on over to @Hazel_and_Bean on Instagram.  Click on the #SpeakOutLove image & share your email address with them.  They will email the #SpeakOutLove printout to you within a couple of hours.  You can then print it, take a creative pic of yourself with the printout (I chose to take my pic with my fav DIY magnet board that a sweet friend made for me.) and begin sharing over your own social media accounts.  🙂

Wow, I did say this was going to be a short post.  Sorry!  Okay, one more thing……here are some sites I have found helpful when talking to my kiddos about cyberbullying.

1.  Stopbullying.org

2.  Deletecyberbullying.org

3.  PBS Kids….Bullies:  Online Bullying

4. Stompoutbullying.org

5.  Safeteens.com

What are some ways or resources you are using to educate your family or yourself on Cyberbullying?  Can’t wait to hear from you!  Thanks so much for stopping by A.I.M.!

    I have a one year old and another on the way, so I REALLY hope they won’t have to deal with bullying for a while, however, I do think it is important to educate myself and my husband now so we can prepare for it. This is a wonderful campaign and I’m so glad you are spreading the word.
