There's a new online anti-bullying campaign called "Pledge to Choose Kind" inspired by the book WONDER (written by R.J. Palacio). The site is sponsored by Random House (good on ya guys!).
The book is about a 5th grade boy with severe facial deformities and its getting serious press on both sides of the Atlantic. In the UK, it's coming out in editions both for young readers AND adults. In the US it is creating awesome ripple effects.
As the author said, “Celebrating those who have made the choice to be kind – not always an easy thing to do when you’re a kid! – is the best way to raise awareness of this very simple fact: kindness is a virtue whose ripple effects can literally change the world.” Thanks to PW for the heads up.
