The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation reminds supporters that the 14th of November marks the Annual StandUp Day.
Founder and Chairman of the Foundation, Ben Cohen, MBE said:
We are celebrating on StandUp Day this year for a couple of reasons. It is the launch of StandUp Magazine as well as the day that I reflect personally on the long-term effects that bullying can have on families. I know from my own family tragedy.
We are continuing to fuel a powerful movement that is going to make a difference in the lives of youth who face bullying every day. When we stand together we stand a bit taller. The message we are giving out is that it is time to stop the bullying. Young people’s lives are being ruined, and all it takes is the right person at the right time to stand beside them when it matters most to make the difference.
Our goal is to raise awareness. The concept is simple, but very powerful. I am asking YOU to stand up with me by wearing their StandUp merchandise, by telling at least one person about StandUp, posting or tweeting about how they are standing up, or simply changing your profile pictures to the StandUp logo for the day. It is time to stand up against bullying, and I am proud to be able to ask you to stand up with me.
Thanks for your continued support,
Stand up with Ben on StandUp Day – November 14th
