-a special day where good people across the world join together to say bullying sucks by pledging their support to victims.
|International STAND UP to Bullying Day is a special event in which people across the world who have signed a special “pledge shirt” join together in wearing them to:
|The stand is taken globally; with pledge shirts and services being made available to schools and workplaces in 25 different countries. All registration takes place online.|
|Each participant must pledge themselves and their community members by signing their name to the back of a special pledge shirt. Participants are then notified before each STAND to make sure they wear it throughout the day during each event. Shirts can be ordered at any time and are the same for each event.|
|Although International STAND UP to Bullying Day normally takes place on the last Friday of each month (during the school year), we are currently backordered on a number of shirt sizes for new participants, so we have designated Friday, March 28th, 2014 as the next unified STAND to ensure everyone wishing to participate will have a shirt to sign and wear with those who have already STOOD UP!|
|To date, more than 3500 schools, workplaces and organizations representing more than a million people have taken the STAND. Although the movement has been primarily North American based, it's quickly spreading across the globe and is expected to continue gaining momentum.
