Crumpled: Words Matter
The power of a word is underestimated.
This is why we, as a society, have to take online harassment seriously.
Bullying doesn't discriminate. No one is immune to cyberbullying. From schools to workplaces to playing fields to cyberspace -- at any age, you can become a victim of vicious keystrokes and harsh words.
Crumpled is the name of a video created by a group of students that are on a mission to Delete Negativity on Social Media with the #iCANHELP Campaign. The video speaks for itself, the message is powerful and one you need to pass on to others.
These students call themselves The Positive Warriors! It started when someone created a fake Facebook page to make fun of a teacher at their school. Instead of retaliating with cruelty, they decided to come back with kindness by spreading positive messages throughout social media and their school.
This crusade has spread through 100 schools in their state of California. Their goal is to go national.
Will it start with you? Talk to your school about it today.

Words matter, keystrokes counts, use them with care.
