Start by watching the trailer to the documentary Bully.
Over 13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. The new documentary film BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families. -The Bully Project Production Notes
Now that you’re properly punched in the proverbial gut, we’re asking you to help make a difference as we at Curvy Girl Guide are vowing.

Support The Weinstein Company in their efforts to have the documentary properly rated PG-13 instead of the R rating given by the MPAA. With a PG-13 rating, the movie would be more accessible to teens and able to be shown in high schools where it needs to be shared.
We are vowing to do anything we can to spread the message of kindness and acceptance. This starts in infancy, both literally and figuratively. Make the choice to Be Kind to others. Show others in your actions of being kind.
