My Friends Like Me--An Anti-Bully Book

As a former teacher, and a mother of two little ones, any action towards bullying is very near and dear to my heart. That is why when my friend Meredith Looney contacted me about their new book My Friends Like Me and awesome idea to get these books into our schools, I was more than on board. Please read below and see if this something you may want to jump on board with as well.

Right now they are running a promotion for your school to get FREE anti-bullying books for each child enrolled if they do a fundraiser.  It’s really that easy.   They have less than 100 spots available. Once these spots are filled there will be a minimal requirement to get the anti-bullying books. So if you are forwarding to anyone please let them know that we need to get them scheduled pretty quickly so they don’t miss out on the FREE books.

*  Please note that it mentions a minimum sales requirement on the flier but right now we are doing the FREE promotion.* We are currently booking for Aug/Sept/Oct/Nov 2012 

No other company is offering so much value to schools and children with their traditional fundraisers of candy, coupons, cookie dough.

The i Like Book Brand Takes a Stand Against Bullying





Washington, DC, July 09, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The i like book brand is taking a stand against bullying in schools. The two year old company has developed a new anti-bullying book to be implemented this year. Meredith Looney, owner, states "We are passionate about building up a child's self-esteem and how that can directly impact bullying starting at a young age. The new book called, My Friends LIKE Me, is a peer to peer book that is sure to make every child in a classroom feel special with compliments from their classmates."

This innovative company has gone a step further in the anti-bullying campaign by giving the books away free to schools. Looney comments, "We launched a successful fundraising campaign for schools last year with the i like book collection. We realized that we can add more value to schools by giving each child an anti-bullying book when their school completes a fundraiser. The schools only have to sell a minimal amount of books to qualify." The bullying epidemic has received a lot of national attention in the past few years including President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama's, launch of StopBullying.gov. Looney says that, "Many people and companies are launching extensive anti-bullying platforms that are both expensive and intensive but we have chosen to get back to the basics. The new book will allow children to feel direct compliments from their classmates which helps build their self-confidence and worth at the core level."

Meredith and her husband, Lance Looney created a series of i like books that develop more meaningful relationships through daily affirmations. These books also create a memory keeper for years to come. The new anti-bullying books will be released for the 2013 school year in August. Additional information about the i like book brand can be found at www.theilikebook.com.
