“When I decided to be a part of Be Strong there was such a stigma around bullying at my school. It was shocking.” Britney 17 years old, Be Strong Student State Representative goes on, “Even though I felt a bit isolated, I realized that this was my chance to help remove that stigma and be passionate about this amazing opportunity. I am passionate about Be Strong and it became almost contagious.”
“I feel that Be Strong is a fantastic organization as it is one of the only in my opinion that is working to create this larger scale impact driven around social change with kids by working directly with students. Also, the app provides more services and outreach than any single one person could ever create.” said Michael Levine CEO of Global Food Solutions.
“Be Strong strives to inspire kids to feel empowered and encourage change in their peers,” said Ashleigh Cromer, executive director of Be Strong. “We meet students where they are and provide sustainable education and resources for change, in a digestible, actionable and entertaining way. Our youth are smart, open, inspiring and our most precious resource – I’m motivated by their resiliency and ability to connect in a way that’s comfortable for them.”
Levine adds “I believe Be Strong is on the path to creating a continued movement for change agents in young children to not only help themselves but also help their peers and those around them as well by creating this large community environment”
“No child should ever have to experience bullying, which is why we are working with Be Strong and trying to help them put a stop to this once and for all.” says Chad Dime, Co-Founder Diff Eyewear “Children are our future, and they should have every opportunity to succeed in a cruelty-free world, which is why Diff Eyewear is proud to partner with Be Strong and champion being different is just what our world needs.”
“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our sixth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partner’s eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
