My name is Andrea and I go to Willow Glen Middle School in San Jose CA. I opened this fundraiser to bring awareness to a serious problem that many kids, including myself, have experienced. Have you ever felt the pain of somebody hurting you in a way that last weeks at a time? Have you ever went to sleep and thought about this pain and woke up and felt the same pain inside. The only thing with this pain, is that no medicine can cure it, no mother hug can help it, and not best friend can make it go away. The pain I am talking about is bullying. Kids of all ages have experienced this pain, and all kids react differently to it. Some kids go quiet, some kids cry when nobody is looking, and some kids even commit suicide because of it. I think about this pain and it makes me sad, because no kid should hurt themselves because somebody hurt them in this way. Please help me bring awareness to this issue so kids can be kids, and not worry about this awful pain.
