Stop the Bullying with Character Counts!!

My students need a digital camera to help build a photowall for our anti-bullying campaign.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students want to build a photowall for our Character Counts campaign. This wall would be photos of students who exemplify the pillars of Character Counts, Respect, Caring, Trustworthiness, Fairness, Citizenship, Responsibility. This wall would help our school stop bullying.

Our students come from a low socioecomic area.

They work hard and want our school to be the best in the state. Our school prides itself on caring for all of our students. The students would like to start a photowall that supports our school's mission of Character Counts and anti-bullying. Our students would take pictures of students displaying the six pillars. These pictures would be posted around our school and on our website. We are hoping ABC Family can help our mission of stopping bullying and building solid relationships in our school. The photowall will help us accomplish this.

My Project

We are requesting a Canon PowerShot SX230 HS digital camera to take pictures of students displaying excellent character and stopping bullying. This resource is the first step in building our anti-bullying campaign and making our photowall a success. This camera would also assist us in catching students displaying the Character Counts pillars and getting our story out to the public. Hopefully ABC Family will help tell our story.

This project is important to our school because we are serious about stopping bullying.

This camera would help us in our mission of anti-bullying and recognizing our students being great citizens. Our school has many programs that benefit students, this camera could be utilized in many different ways to help our school tell our story about great kids, Character Counts and anti-bullying. Our photowall will be a great way to show our school and community the great things our kids do everyday.
