This anti-bullying campaign is led by is a small, all volunteer, non-profit society in British Columbia, Canada who donate t-shirts to schools and assist in anti-bullying initiatives. A study by the Interactive Autism Network (IAN) found that 63% of 1,167 children with autism had been bullied. This month for my newsletter subscribers, we have an all new giveaway for a book about autism and bullying with an anti-bullying themed necklace to raise awareness of this issue.

This month’s newsletter giveaway:

No One Needed to Know
by D. G. Driver & an anti-bullying themed necklace

Heidi’s brother, Donald, is 16 and Autistic. She has always loved playing with him, but now she’s 11 and her life is changing. She’s embarrassed to have her brother around and tries not to tell anyone about him. High school boys bully him. When the kids at her school find out about him, she gets bullied too. It’s not fair. No one seems to understand.

But Heidi needs to understand too. She can’t change her brother, but she can change how she feels about him, and she can get people to see why her brother is special.

A perfect book for 9-13 year old readers dealing with bullying issues or to promote understanding and compassion for people with special needs.
