BPAA raises funds to fight back against bullying
The Bullying Prevention Association of America held an online fundraiser from September 19 – 22, 2018 to raise funds for the No Bullies Allowed Initiative. Contributors were asked to donate a minimum of $10 and earn the chance to win two (2) Houston Astros tickets for Sunday, September 23, 2018, the last home game of the 2018 regular season. With the help of Jay Matlock and the Houston Astros Nation☆ Facebook fan group, $1075 was raised.
The winning donor was selected at random, and tickets were awarded to Angel Thompson-Broussard. Angel watched the Astros beat the Angels (6 – 2) from two Crawford Box seats.
The No Bullies Allowed Initiative includes four campaigns that teach the value of hard work, personal resilience and teamwork through field-based learning, physical activities, and team sports.
