Time for Kids: The Buddy Project

Join Us and Take the Pledge — Stand Up Against
Bullying in Our Community

Buddy Wristbands
and Pledge Cards

In Fall 2013, Dean Medical Group sent more than 290,000 free buddy wristbands to schools, groups and families throughout Wisconsin.

The buddy wristbands are currently available. Request your wristband today!

Bullies don't stand a chance when we all stand together.

Join other kids, adults and leaders in our community by showing your support.

Take the pledge and wear the wristband that says:
Be a Buddy Not a Bully.

Why You Should Make This Pledge

71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their schools.

15% of all school absenteeism is directly related to fears of some form of bullying.

1 in 7 students in grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of a bully.

Only about a third of bully victims report the bullying to someone at school.

There is a relationship between bullying or being bullied and other types of violence.
