|Chiswick Charity Launches Cyberkind Campaign|
Act Against Bullying "It’s all about being nice on the net!"
Chiswick charity Act Against Bullying (AAB) has launched Cyberkind campaign which aims to raise awareness of the problems young people face online especially via social networking.
The campaign's aims include:
To promote Act Against Bullying’s values and beliefs in motivating and inspiring others primarily but not exclusively to help children who are bullied at school in the following way:
Social networking is now not just a way of life, but the way of life for so man and young people in particular. However, with cyberbullying on the increase right across the social spectrum the charity is urging as many internet users as possible to join in AAB’s Cyberkind Campaign.
Act Against Bullying is a Chiswick based research and campaigning charity which was set up to help children who are bullied at school, their parents and carers.
The ethos of the organisation is upbeat and motivational as they believe that bullying is a complex and insidious problem which is often very difficult to counter and yet the effects of systematic bullying on young people can be long lasting severe and life-threatening.
They strive to raise awareness of all kinds of bullying, and more recently the modern forms such as cyber abuse and exclusion to cause to distress.
Founded in 2003, it is still fully staffed by volunteers meaning that all money donated is spent on their ongoing Cool to be Kind campaign.
