Give It Up for Ditch the Label

Give It Up… Our Anti-Bullying Week fundraiser

This Anti-Bullying Week (12th to 16th November 2018) we’re asking everyone to give something up for Ditch the Label in return for donations and sponsorship. With your help we can increase the support we provide to young people who need us, helping to fund another expert support mentor.

What are you going to give up? It could be anything from social media, junk food or your biggest fear. So, what are you waiting for? Start fundraising now.

Why should you get involved?

Cyberbullying is one of the things young people worry about the most. As a result of being abused online, 41% felt anxious, 37% became depressed and 26% had suicidal thoughts. Yet 69% of the people we asked admitted doing something abusive towards another person online.
