Positive Promotions Stands Against Bullying During National Bullying Prevention Month

Written by Positive Promotions on 15 October 2012.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. As a serious issue in today’s society, Positive Promotions presents a promotional product line to encourage today’s youth to treat others with respect. Knowledge is power. Positive Promotions is hopeful that the more students know about the intolerable act of bullying, the likelihood of it ending is greater. Their promotional products support bully prevention education and serve as a reminder to students to stand against bullying together.

Positive Promotions believes in the social responsibility to stand against bullying. As a widespread and serious problem, the promotional product company offers an extensive line of educational tools and resources for use in schools, the home, and other organizations to remind students to join together to stop bullying. With encouraging slogans at guaranteed lowest prices these educational motivators makes it easy to send a powerful message for respect.

Statistically speaking, approximately 13 million students will be bullied this year. Each month, 3 million students will skip school to avoid others cruel behavior towards them. Bullying comes in many forms including verbal, physical, social, and cyberbullying. No type of bullying in tolerable and no student should be subjected to feeling unsafe in school or anywhere else. Educating today’s youth about bullying and the ramifications bullying has is one of today’s most important lessons.

Positive Promotions offers fun ways to encourage students to end the inexcusable act of bullying. For instance, the unique “Bullying Jar” allows for students to open up and express themselves about bullying while pledge cards and vinyl banners allow them to make a statement of their intent to treat others with kindness. Theme kits with over 300 products are perfect handout reminders for any classroom event or presentation. Other products Positive Promotions offers include activity books, silicone bracelets, dog tags, t-shirts, and more.

With commanding slogans like “Take a Stand Lend a Hand: Stop Bullying,” “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully,” and “Think B4 U Post” as well as the inspirational quote from Ghandi, “Be the Change You Wish to See in The World,” Positive Promotions products call for students of all ages to reflect on their actions and offer powerful reinforcement aimed at bully prevention.

Positive Promotions believes that cost should not deter organizations from hosting bully prevention events to educate today’s youth. With budgets in mind, they have made their products available for as low as $0.06 each. Giving students even just a small reminder can make a huge difference.

As a product company that promotes causes, Positive Promotions believes it is their responsibility to support them as well. Therefore, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of bully prevention products are donated to prominent organizations like Big Brothers, Big Sisters and the National Family Partnership. They believe in these organizations efforts to offer safe environments for children while encouraging healthy habits and compassion towards others.
