We help prevent bullying by empowering people to connect, embrace their differences & make pro-social changes that encourage kindness.
We encourage young people and their communities to become upstanders, create leadership groups and run pro-social events to help prevent bullying, isolation and prejudice. We do this via our website and social media pages which are full of tips and tools for young people (and adults/whānau/youth workers) to use and through in-school/organisation presentations and projects. Your donation will help us continue the communication and sharing of our resources throughout New Zealand, and help us work in a proactive, hands-on way to help communities in Christchurch flourish.
NZ is 2nd worst in the OECD for bullying and that is simply not ok! We encourage a strengths-based solution to bullying by empowering youth (and adults) to connect with each other, embrace their differences & make pro-social changes that encourage kindness. Our website has tools to help you become involved in creating your own cultures of acceptance and compassion which ultimately stops common issues such as bullying, loneliness, negativity, racism and the negative effects such as violence, self harm and mental health issues.
We are a team of pro-active change makers, who care deeply about humans and helping make the world a better place. If we see a cause that is in need of support, we will use our platform to help. In this instance donations will be tagged with a specific "code" and we will ensure all funds received for that particular cause are forwarded as soon as Givealittle releases them.
Closure of website 25 January 2023
Sadly due to lack of funding, our informative, pro-active website will be shutting down 5/2/23. They've kindly offered us a 40% discount but we don't have the $75 to keep it alive for another year. If you could donate that would be AMAZING! It's verified & tax deductible which means you get 33.3% back: https://givealittle.co.nz/org/bthechange
Thank you SO much for your generosity. We are so very grateful for you!!!
