NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of October's National Bullying Prevention Month, STOMP Out Bullying™, the leading national nonprofit dedicated to changing the culture for all students, calls on the nation to support their mission by raising awareness around the need to develop a society focused on kindness and inclusivity.
"We have always been an organization dedicated to spreading kindness and preventing bullying and cyberbullying. However, this year, we were driven more than ever to help communities, youth, students and society realize that what we really need is to change the culture from one of cruelty to one of civility," said Ross Ellis, CEO and Founder of STOMP Out Bullying™. "This October, we mark 13 years as an organization. I never want to see another child in pain," added Ms. Ellis. "And I never want to hear the words, 'I want to die.'"
