October is National Bullying Prevention Month.
This is important.
My National Bullying Prevention Month hero this year is Natalie Hampton. She created an app called Sit With Us. Sit With Us helps you find people in the cafeteria you can sit with so you don’t have to sit alone at lunch.
This is outstanding.
As someone who endured the horror of sitting alone at lunch in high school, I know how devastating sitting alone is…and how the trauma of this harsh ostracism can affect you for many years.
Sit With Us is improving lives everyday. It even has the potential to save lives.
This is phenomenal.
Sit With Us is on Twitter @nobodyeatsalone. Connect with them.
For those of you in school, please be aware of anyone sitting alone in the cafeteria who would be immensely grateful to sit with you. Be an Upstander and invite them over to your table! You have the power to save lives too.
