    The Reason

    In August of 2012, Lake, City, FL, hometown of SpeedySigns, was affected by the suicide of a 13-year-old boy who had just entered the 8th grade. Although the exact motives behind why the child decided to take his own life were unclear, it was believed to have been driven by the fact that he had been bullied on several occasions. This lead to discussion among us here at SpeedySigns on how tragic it is that most people don’t realize how damaging bullying can be. We did our research on the statistics and decided we wanted to get involved in helping spread awareness. We contacted The PACER Center to talk about how our organizations could work together given the resources we each have. So, we’re offering discounted banners to schools an organizations that want to participate in bullying prevention.

    Join Us by Getting Involved

    Hanging a banner in a school is just a small way to raise awarenss in efforts to prevent bullying. Visual reminders can be very valuable, and that’s why we’re offering our resources. However, there are many other ways to get involved in the fight against bullying. The first step is educating yourself on what what bullying actually is and it’s effects. Many people don’t realize the impact that bullying has on kids and teens. Many just chalk it up to nothing more than “kids just being kids”, but it’s so much more than that. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, and according to study conducted by Yale University, bully victims are between 2-9 times more likely to commit suicide. When something so tragic can be so easily prevented, there’s simply no reason to not take action. There are some great resources out there with information on bullying. The PACER Center has a portion of there site dedicated to it. Visit pacer.org/bullying.
