Stop Bullying Before It Starts


Keeping kids safe both on the playground and online is the mission for Gabriella van Rij through the month of October.

She’s waging a ‘Dare To Be Kind campaign during National Bullying Prevention month, and she’s calling on you to join.

Van Rij is a noted author, speaker and as she says, an activist for kindness.  Through her work, she’s developed a four-step plan to prevent bullying and cyber-tormenting which includes becoming an active witness, embrace your unique qualities, dare to “step into you”, and to choose kindness above all else.

Her book, ‘I Can Find My Might’ recounts her own journey against bullying and aims to empower readers with the tools to change the mindset behind the abuse.  You can follow Gabriella on her Kindness Campaign at Gabriella.Global.
