You might have read our review for Awesome Upstander! a few weeks ago and know that we were quite taken with the message it sends. I very much like the fact that the game teaches children to stop bullying by teaming up with friends and helping those who are being bullied. Usually bullying occurs because no one wants to help, but this game hopes to change that. i’m a fan of this game and what it is trying to accomplish.
That is also why I think this news is great. HealthTeacher, Inc., the developers of the game, will be donating 50% of all proceeds received from the sale of Awesome Upstander! to the The KIND Campaign, an internationally recognized movement, documentary and school program based upon the powerful belief in KINDness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl “crime,” and TruthLocker, a free archiving app that automatically saves every text, photo and social media message in case a child is ever attacked by a cyberbully.
I love the fact that they are leading by example and taking a proactive step towards bullying.
