Happy Thanksgiving and a Tribute to (What Would Have Been) Amanda Todd’s 18th Birthday

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the United States! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful and blessed day! Many people might only think of today as Thanksgiving in the US, but today also happens to be the day that would have been Amanda Todd’s 18th birthday. Amanda Todd is the teen who tragically took her own life due to many different issues. If you have not heard about Amanda’s story I would encourage you to read my article Cyberbullying – In Memory Of Amanda Todd. Today Carol Todd (Amanda’s mother) and many other volunteers have joined together to help keep Amanda’s legacy alive and to help put a stop to bullying, sextortion, and many other things. The Amanda Todd Legacy Society also helps to raise awareness about mental health, cyberbullying, and many other issues.

 

What People Are Doing (People Do Care)
What You Can Do
There are many different ways that you can support the Amanda Todd Legacy Society, everything from donating money to donating your time to help out in whatever way you can. If you want to donate money you can do so online by clicking here. Additionally, Steve Lounds (A big supporter of the Amanda Todd Legacy Society) has started a fundraiser/donation challenge where he stated that he will match every dollar donated up to $500.00 by November 27 2014. Although the goal of $500.00 has been exceeded, there is still time left (the fundraiser ends tonight at midnight) and every dollar donated still goes directly to the Amanda Todd Legacy Society, so everyone lets rock this fundraiser. You can donate to Steve’s fundraiser and help out the Amanda Todd Legacy Society by clicking here.
