Introducing Be Kind Online - help us and be the change!

Oct 02, 2011

Hey KWers, we've got something new for you and we need YOUR help! Simply put, we need you to Be Kind Online and share that message with everyone you know! Kidzworld has launched a new program called "Be Kind Online" with a super cool new website where you, your friends, your parents, your teachers, really anyone can learn about cyber bullying. Be Kind Online provides educational information, ideas for how to stop online cruelty and how not to be mean behind the screen, what you can do to stop it and more. As you know, we have been talking about cyber bullying all summer, and in honor of October's International Anti-Bullying month, we have taken a stand and are stomping out cyber bullying.

Be sure to share it with your parents and teachers, they need help fighting cyber bullying too! But guess what? We need your help again to grow the movement. We ask a lot of you, but we do it because we KNOW you can help us and help other kids, too. You were super helpful when we asked for help naming our project so we know you care and want to help. It's thanks to you that this whole project even started. So now we want YOU to be kind online and share that message with the world! We've even picked out 5 amazing organizations all over the world who are fighting against bullying for everyone and can provide you with help and answers to any questions you might have about how you have or are being affected by bullying

Want to know how you can show your support?

  1. On Facebook? Like us! We've created a Be Kind Online Facebook page. We hope you like us...it's another way to show your social networks that you support STOPPING cyber bullying. Where better to stop cyber bullying then where it happens: online? 
  2. Are you on Twitter? We are! Follow BKO on Twitter. 
  3. On You Tube you can subscribe or add BKO as a friend on You Tube
  4. Want to SHOW your friends that you love Be Kind Online? We've created a Twibbon for Be Kind Online. A Twibbon is kind of like a badge, a little graphic that you can put onto your social network profile picture to show you support our campaign. If you have Twitter or Facebook you can add the Be Kind Online (BKO) Twibbon to your profile picture. It's an awesome picture and if you put it up, you're already being a part of the solution to bullying and sharing your support with your friends! Here is how you add it to your Twitter profile and here is how you add it to Facebook!

 

There are over 2 million KW users. Imagine how fast and far you can spread the word and help put a stop to bullying! Being kind online is easy, we're just here to make it easier. You can help us, you can BE the CHANGE!

HUGE thanks from all of us at Kidzworld!

@country_girl19, I agree with Athena. She might not realize how she's making you feel and it's best to talk to her about it, if not it could get worse. If nothing changes after talking with her, then I think you should rethink things. @WatermelonCurlz, I don't really think you should hang around them that much. They don't listen to you or seem to really care about the fact that you've talked about getting different friends. I'm not saying to just cut them off all together, but I wouldn't stray from the idea of slowly distancing yourself.

So I say, I'm going to go find real friends, and they say, OK, like me care. And that's all they want to talk about, at recess, lunch, secretly in class, you name it thye do it. How do I get them to stop?   You should probably just stop talking to them and stuff. don't sit by them at lunch and don't hang out with them at recess. they sound like they are not good friends. if it gets worse, just tell your parents if they don't already know. idk how good i am at advise. hope this helped.  ~JazzyRox

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D
