A Blog with a Purpose

Moving away from the usual drivel on here, I’m going to get all serious for a second, and draw your attention to an important cause.

Bullying is an issue that touches us all at some point in our lives.  Many will have been bullied, some may know a person who is/was bullied, some may be parents of a child and worried about bullying, whilst others may just be the bully.  As someone who has been on the receiving end of this very special form of cowardice, and also a parent who knows that this issue will some day affect his children in some way, I would like to draw your attention to the wonderful work of Bullying UK – the UK’s leading anti-bullying charity and safety net for children and families. It’s not just children who get bullied – people young or old at home or in the workplace can suffer too. It’s great to know there is an organization that can help with advice and support.  Take a moment to visit them.  I’m not asking you to donate anything other than a couple of minutes to visit their site.  It’ll maybe open some eyes.

This blog post is part of Zemanta’s “Blogging For a Cause” campaign to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes that bloggers care about.
