The Million T-Shirt March Against Bullying
The time for change is now!
The Million T-Shirt March is more than just a powerful statement against the growing issue of bullying within our schools, homes and communities.
Making a statement to create awareness is one thing – but actually DOING SOMETHING about this growing social issue is extremely important. We recognize the best way to fight back is to install the most effective Anti-Bullying Programs within our system – to better learn about how to deal with (and overcome), this epidemic.
Unfortunately school budgets are created without considering the addition of such programs. Without the community's tax dollars to support them, our educators simply don't have the financial resources to fight back against a problem they see growing every day.
The March has also been designed to allow you to raise funds for your own anti-bullying programs, whether you use the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program or not. This is the largest and most ambitious anti-bullying rally ever attempted, and you don't need to leave your school to participate.
In raising awareness about bullying, your groups also raise funds for much needed programs through the sales of t-shirts – which are to be worn on the same day by everyone taking part in the rally. All monies retained over $8.00 goes directly to your school or organization for the development of anti-bullying programs.

Although it is a national event, it really becomes a local event with your participation, and it is a fun way to get students involved in the discussions of bullying and its consequences.
Please consider joining the next March
