The other week, we told you all about a fantastic event that is happening on the 15th November at the start of Anti-Bullying Week 2010 – the world’s first ever online demonstration called The Big March in a campaign to stop bullying.
The support for this has been incredible. In fact, if everyone who has joined The Big March was a little star – and Beatbullying placed all of these stars up in the The Big March Park – let’s just say, there’d be a lot of light pollution because The Big March now has 240, 441 followers!
And if you or your friends haven’t signed up, make sure you get involved!
The Big March gives you the opportunity to create a digital avatar of yourself, which will join a massive crowd of marchers including celebrities like Aston Merrygold, The Saturdays, Corrie’s Michelle Keegan, Alexandra Burke and Alesha Dixson all headed to No.10 to stand up together to sign a petition asking Government to make sure all children and young people are protected from all forms of bullying.
On the site you can also find out loads of really interesting information about bullying and add your own views to the debate of what should be done. For example, did you know that an overwhelming 81% of children believe that bullying should be made a crime? Make sure you go to The Big March website and check out more fascinating statistics like this and see what others just like you make of the issue.
Anyone can sign-up to the Big March Park using the individual sign-up procedure at the same address, so spread the good word to colleagues, friends and family and challenge them to design an avatar as attractive as yours.
