Help Stop Bullying!

Bullies are everywhere. Teachers with some students, bosses with their employees, kids towards other kids. And it's often the children that are the worst bullies. Some are down right brutal. Sometimes, it's so bad that the bullied child feels that they have to leave the district to get away from it.

That's exactly what happened with Slap Dash Mom's daughter. In Mom's words (because I couldn't have said it better myself) "She dealt with severe bullying this past August-December, to the point where we had to switch schools. This new school is a little better, but even when she isn't being bullied she is seeing other kids get bullied and it's hard. She knows if she intervenes, she will become a target and her life will become a living hell again. She knows if she does not intervene, she's no better than the bullies (her words). It's been stressing her out a lot, so she started making jewelry to turn her negative thoughts/energy into positive.  She decided to donate $1.00 of each sale to anti-bullying campaigns, so they can help kids learn how to positively deal with bullying as well."

"What sales?" you may be asking. Well, here's where you come in. Janelle has an Etsy shop. You can find it here. They are stocking up on February 1st. She makes such cute earrings!! They're guitar pick style, and so unique! I have never seen anything quite like them. I haven't been able to wear earrings lately, but I love these ones! Placing an order helps bring Janelle closer to her goal of $100 for donation. Any little bit helps!

Janelle and mom have offered my readers a special code to use when they go live. Enter in code KRISTEN for 10% off your total. Feel free to share the code and tell everyone you know! Let's get Janelle up to her goal!

Don't forget to check out her Facebook page as well! You can find that here.
