Subject: What Comes Next, What Happens Now
I hope that this email finds you well. I have some good news and an urgent message for you. I’m proud to announce that my new blog www.blognamehere.com “TITLE” is out. It explains how my experience with bullying had a brutally long-lasting impact on my life.
And this long-lasting impact that bullying can have on life is what I’d like to discuss next:
Think bullying is just a part of growing up? Think again. Every seven minutes, a precious child is being bullied on the playground. Whether the bullying is verbal, mental or physical, the vast majority of our children have experienced the abuse of bullying. 77% to be precise.
If this isn’t saddening or shocking enough, victims of bullying are 2 -9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, and at least half of suicides among youth are related to bullying.
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.” Elie Wiesel
It doesn’t have to be this way, however. Together we can stop the needless suffering of countless young people, even preventing death.
If you saw a child suffering in the street would you stop and help them, or would you walk away? *KICKSTARTER PROJECT* will examine the long term effects of bullying to give a voice to these victims.
You can not fix a problem unless you deep dive into it and understand the causes. *KICKSTARTER PROJECT* will draw attention to this unacknowledged community of children silently suffering, and adults suffering from the consequences of childhood bullying.
I am trying to make a difference with my documentary, but I need your help. To edit our sizzle reel and film other new footage, we will need to raise an additional $$$$ by the end of MONTH moving forward. All donations are 100% tax-deductible. Please join me in my endeavor to do the right thing and explore this quiet, yet pervasive epidemic of suffering.
PS. Have any of your friends and/or loved ones been impacted by bullying? We'd love your connecting them with us, that we might be of service together through this project. Thanks again!
