A Great Book for Our Time!

 

 Short Summary

 “A person suffering from a disease dies only once but a victim of bullying dies every day.”

We have found a cure for bullying –Respect. 

 

The Book of Respect is a life-sized book at 4ft (122cm) x 2.5ft (76cm). It is part of The Respect Revolution which started in Toronto in 2009.

It was designed by high school students and built by hand. It has been signed by many local politicians, experts and members of the public who added handwritten comments. Displayed in many public places, it continues to draw crowds and attract attention.

It is an excellent vehicle to spread the message of Respect. It is a very ambitious project and judging from the response thus far, we know it is a worthwhile one.   

 

Where’s the Money Going?

The money raised will go towards enhancements of The Book of Respect including: an interactive website, creation of additional volumes, translations into different languages, design and production of Respect workbooks for schools and transportation for public displays. If we raise enough money, we will purchase a large bus, which we will name The Respect-mobile to travel throughout Canada and the US to display The Book of Respect and to raise awareness of the revolution.

Respect is a currency but you can’t put a price on it. Imagine a world where respect is key. Join us today and pass it on.

The Impact

Our project is awesome because:

This symbolic book is dedicated to the memory of all those who lost their lives by the hands of others or by their own due to bullying.

It is hard to knowingly disrespect someone who you care about! Try it. It's impossible.

                             Respect does not hurt, pass it on.
