The Be List is a new feature to the Be Unlimited blog. On The Be List, you will find recommendations on what to read, what to listen to, what to see on television or at the movies, what to wear, and more. If it’s on The Be List, it should be on your list.
On The Be List today is the color ORANGE. If you care about people who are bullied and want bullying to end, make your color orange today. It’s Unity Day, a major event created by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Today, people from everywhere can link together—in schools, communities and online—and send one large, orange message of support to students who have experienced bullying.
If you don’t have anything orange to wear, you can still show your support. Simply write the word “UNITY” on your hand, on your notebook, or on a poster to hang in your locker or hallway. Add the color orange to your Facebook or Twitter page, or post the word “UNITY” there. It’s that easy.
Anderson Cooper has long been an anti-bullying advocate. He’s also someone who I admire a great deal. I was recently in the studio audience of Anderson Live. During a break in taping, following a segment on bullying, I was able to tell Anderson how his work as an anti-bullying advocate inspires me to do the same. You’ll notice that Anderson is wearing an orange tie in the photo. His co-host for the day, Jane Velez-Mitchell (not pictured), wore orange, too. Audience members all left with UNITE AGAINST BULLYING t-shirts. I’ll be wearing mine.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month. In support, Be Unlimited is taking a major stand against bullying. We hope that you stand with us.
Let’s all UNITE AGAINST BULLYING— today and every day.
