October is National Bullying Prevention Month.
Earlier this spring Governor Rick Scott signed a bill (HB 609) that expands Florida's current anti-bullying law to include "cyberbullying" and to include some activities that occur off campus and on privately owned electronic devices.
The Bully Text is part of DoSomething.org’s proprietary mobile gaming model – through which they built their mobile subscriber list to over 1.3 young people. With the average teen sending 3,339 texts a month and texts having a 99% open rate; SMS is a powerful tool to effectively engage young people on issues they care about.
