Thanks to the funding and support of our board of trustees* and the following partners, BullyBust is able to provide critical resources and programs to directly support schools-in-need nationwide:
WICKED the Musical
Wicked is "The Best Musical of the Decade" (Entertainment Weekly), and our proud partner for National Bully Prevention Month in October 2010. We are working with Wicked to provide students and adults with curricula, classroom activities and exciting ways to reduce bullying and promote upstander behavior. Elphaba, the star of the musical, is our 2010 spokesperson, and she will be promoting our supports through videos, tips and educational activities. Educators in the Partner Schools Program will have access to an Upstander Toolkit and opportunities to engage their students in a national contest.
Satya Jewelry is more than just an accessory line; it’s jewelry with meaning. Satya means truth in Sanskrit and it is the guiding force behind all we do. Each and every piece is created to empower and inspire the wearer with sacred symbols and semiprecious stones. A portion of every sale is donated to The Satya Foundation, which has raised over $1 million for children’s charities throughout the world. You can Stand Up to Bullying in style with the "For Good" necklace, and 50% of the proceeds will support BullyBust's work with schools nationwide.
Stacy Igel is the Founder/Creative Director and Chief Brand Ambassador of Boy Meets Girl®, a stylish yet casually classic designer brand. Boy Meets Girl® is celebrated on television shows like Gossip Girl, the Vampire Diaries, America's Next Top Model and by high profile fashionistas like Eva Mendes, Rachel Bilson, Anne Hathaway, and Kristen Bell. In 2009, Stacy teamed up with Bloomingdales and teen celebrity Sammi Hanratty to design a special Boy Meets Girl BullyBust t-shirt to raise awareness for the cause and garner key funds for bully prevention supports.She continues to be a true advocate for the cause to this day.
Flip Video, the company behind the popular handheld camcorders, has joined forces with BullyBust and Wicked to develop a custom camcorder for National Bully Prevention Month. The branding will celebrate the importance of upstander behavior and empower students to use technology for good. BullyBust has also been selected for Flip’s Spotlight Program, through which we are able to provide Partner Schools with free camcorders through a matching program.

Thanks to celebrity supporters and students leaders, the supports of BullyBust spread far and wide across the Internet. Featured at left is Sammi Hanratty, star of the HBO movie about bullying, An American Girl: Chrissa Stands Strong, and A Christmas Carol.
