[p]Thanks for visiting my page. I am running the half marathon in aid of a cause that has probably touched most of us either directly or indirectly. [/p][p][b]BeatBullying[/b] works with children and young people across the UK to stop bullying. They [b]empower young people[/b] so deeply affected by bullying that they can barely face going to school each day. They help young people to [b]support each other[/b] and [b]help bullies to change their attitudes and behaviour [/b]through their ground-breaking programmes [b]CyberMentors[/b] and [b]MiniMentors.[/b][/p][p][b]BeatBullying's 2011 Highlights include:[/b][/p][p]- [b]851,583 mentoring interactions[/b] on cybermentors.org.uk, with schools who had the CyberMentors programme reporting a 40% reduction in bullying[/p][p]- [b]530 5-11 year olds trained as MiniMentors[/b], leading to improved school climates and a reduction in bullying.[/p][p]- [b]38,593 hours donated by online volunteers[/b], adding up to an incredible £234,643 of in-kind support.[/p][p][b]What can your money do?[/b][/p][p]- [b]£22[/b] could pay for one of BB's emergency online counsellors to [b]reach out to a suicidal child[/b] before it's too late.[/p][p] [/p][p]- [b]£90[/b] could pay for a seriously bullied child to complete a series of [b]contracted counselling sessions[/b] with a BeatBullying counsellor, helping them to overcome eating disorders, depression and reducing suicidal thoughts.[/p][p]- [b]£1500 [/b]could pay for [b]BeatBullying to visit a school[/b], identify and work with those that are being bullied and work with those that bully to change behaviour.
