The Campaign: Be Strong has hosted the world's largest anti-bullying events free for attendees and free for schools who tune in via simulcast. Help us raise $25,000 for the Be Strong LIVE Tour to end bullying in 2017. We will award up to 50 student leaders in different states with a free tour stop. And(!), every dollar you give will go twice as far to stop bullying, because a private donor is matching every donation up to $25,000 allowing us to raise a total of $50,000.
The Crisis: Every single day, so many of our students encounter hate and abuse at school. Depression, suicide, and not feeling safe are side-effects of school cultures that are in desperate need of change.
Our Mission: The mission of Be Strong is to end bullying. Period. We've put on the world's largest anti-bullying events and have seen a measurable impact in student's lives. We are inspiring a student led movement to end bullying in our schools.

- Our recent Be Strong event was rated as 9.3 presentation effectiveness on a 10 point scale.
- Our recent event also led to a 83% positive change in students behavior.
- The Be Strong free student resource app has a suicide prevention hotline students can call for help and connects them with local organizations they can reach out to. It has been searched for over 130k times.

The need: Be Strong needs $50,000 to help fund it's national anti-bullying tour in 2017: The Be Strong LIVE Tour.

A note from founder Roy Moore: "The issue of bullying is very important to me and affects my heart because I'm a dad.
Bullying today is not the same as it was when I was a child. Today, it is PERVASIVE. Our children struggle with this issue every day. We have to do something. This is why I founded Be Strong. Providing a National voice and accountability around this top five social, health, and safety issue. I hope you can join me working to end bullying. Both through donation to the 50 State LIVE Tour and as well as other anti-bullying initiatives that you may have an opportunity to be a part of."
