October is National Bully Awareness Month
Bullying affects all youth: those who experience it, those who practice it, and even those who witness it. The effects can lead to feelings of isolation, rejection, exclusion, depression and anxiety. Furthermore, according to the Center For Disease Control, those who bully and those who are bullied are at a higher risk for mental health problems.
According to the National Center for Education, 1 out of every 5 students has reported being bullied, and of those:
- 13% were made fun of or insulted
- 13% were the subject of rumors
- 5% were pushed, shoved, tripped or spit on
- 5% were intentionally excluded from activities
Sadly, the effects of bullying have the potential to continue into adulthood.
This is one of the reasons we’re proud to partner with KIND LIPS, a company that donates 20% of every product purchased to anti-bullying organizations that are devoted to promoting kindness and creating a world without bullying. To date, they have given $26, 883 and 63,568 organic balm tubes.
