Project Peaceful Purple is a campaign aimed to increase awareness of bullying, cyber-bullying, workplace harassment and related issues for youth, parents, young adults, adults, educators and the general public.
Our objective is to inspire pro-social friendships, acceptance and instill a sense of hope in the future. The focus of the project is to aid in the building of youth self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-respect by supporting youth empowerment programs and organizations.
Bullying can be verbal, physical, or via the Internet. It can severely affect the victim's self-image, social interactions, and school performance―often leading to insecurity, lack of self-esteem, and depression in adulthood. School dropout rates and absences among victims of bullying are much higher than among other students.
How do the Purple Buds help in bully prevention?
The Listen Up! Awareness earphones aka Purple Buds were designed to be used as a tool and symbol reminds us of bullying and ways to prevent and stop bullying.
We intend to combat this issue by supporting programs which help youth and young adults build confidence and self esteem.
