Helping you create a message the world can see.

Today’s feature focuses on a writer whose books are part of a mission to stop bullying.

11-year-old Brenden Santos has published not one, but three books to date.

Says Santos, “I have a few missions in life and I have a campaign against bullying.” Santos began working on his three books at age ten and has since created a website, www.againstthebullying.com.

 

To help spread his message, Santos has distributed wristbands among the community, sharing the essence of his campaign “only one me”. He has been making some waves with his progress, and recently met and had dinner with the Lt. Governer of North Carolina.

Santos has big plans for the future of his anti-bullying campaign:

“I am trying to get bully awareness to be one day in August and one day in September because when school starts is when bullying is at its peak.
I want everyone to wear my wrist bands and look at them and remember there’s only one me and that means you.”

You can learn more about Brenden’s mission against bullying and his books at his website.

Santos plans to continue his efforts with his writing and sharing his mantra: “I hope that one day I can have enough money so that I can buy millions of wristbands as I would like to give them away free to everyone in the world so that not only children but also adults who get bullied can remember we all matter.”

We wish Brenden and his cause the very best of luck!

“Our daughter, Patty, in the center of the picture, was nine when she was bullied nearly to death, leaving us a suicide note. Thankfully, we found it, pulled her from the school, got her into counseling, and started our #PattyStrong campaign.”

Teresa, Patty’s mom, has since used the anti-bullying wristbands to get the message out about bullying in our schools and the damage it can cause. Some 13 million kids are bullied in US schools each year. This is one mother’s efforts to shed light on an ongoing threat to kids and how it affects them and their families. Using various hashtags, Teresa has been able to make quite a push in spreading the word to stop bullying. Through supportive messages of solidarity and positive reminders, her campaign has made a difference.

“We probably ordered from you eight times,” said Teresa, who also says she has been able to distribute bracelets to hundreds of kids in her area’s schools.
