All ingredients are found on the islands of the Maldives and luckily for us, also most supermarkets.

It’s roughly three months into the school year. By now, friendships have been established and the same groups of kids can be seen hanging out day-after-day with each other. According to noted bullying prevention expert Brooks Gibbs, it’s about this time in the school year when we typically start to hear more about bullying. That’s because, he says, the power structure within the student body is becoming more pronounced – and the bullies have had time to, in a sense, mark their prey.
Gibbs is a youth crisis counselor and bullying prevention expert who is the national spokesman for the Office Depot Foundation’s “Be The Difference. Speak Up Against Bullying!” Program. He’s on a national speaking tour holding school assemblies for middle school students on how to put a stop to bullying. The program was made possible with the support of Office Depot and the phenomenally popular band One Direction.
His tips for anyone who finds themselves the victim of a bully:
1. Refuse to get mad – Disable the anger button in your brain and show the bully he can try all he wants, but he won’t get you mad. The natural response is to get angry, but you can decide not to.
2. Treat everything as the words of your best friends – This sounds crazy but it works. No matter how nasty or angry people can be, tell yourself the only reason they are talking this way is because they love you, care about you and want to help you. It doesn’t mean you have to treat them as if they are right or do whatever they tell you.
3. Don’t be afraid of bullies – Our bullies will never stop bullying us if we continue to be afraid of them. Even if they are bigger and stronger than you, most of them are not the evil villains you have been imagining them to be. (if they have a history of violent behavior, they are criminals or have other issues and stay away from them).
4. Don’t attack bullies – If we attack bullies, even if they attacked us first, we are letting them know we consider them enemies. So we can expect them to treat us like enemies.
5. Don’t defend yourself – The harder we defend ourselves, the bigger we lose, and the bully will continue attacking to force us into the losing defensive position.
6. Don’t tell on bullies – Despite what most people say, telling on bullies, except under rare circumstances, is the worst thing you can do. It’s the best way to make the bullies despise you. The bully will respect you more if you can work out the problem with him or her on your own.
7. Show you are hurt, not angry – If you show the bully anger, he or she will respond with anger. Show the bully you are hurt and he or she is more likely to apologize and avoid hurting you again.

WWE is a company that wants to bring bullying to the forefront. They want to let the WWE Universe know that bullies will not be tolerated, and that bullying by any means is just WRONG! In 2011 WWE and The Creative Coalition co-founded Be A STAR (Show Tolerance and Respect) which is an anti-bullying initiative.
The mission of Be A STAR is to encourage young people to treat each other with tolerance and respect as well as teach this effort through education and awareness of not only the solutions, but the problems.
“Our mission at WWE is to put smiles on people’s faces and we do that, in part, by supporting programs and initiatives that positively impact children and families around the world,” said Stephanie McMahon, Executive Vice President, Creative, WWE. “We are proud to offer organizations tools and resources to help fight bullying, a critical issue facing young people today in schools, communities and online.”
The Creative Coalition and WWE this past August announced the first-ever Be A STAR grant program. This program will allocate $100,000 in grants. Four $25,000 grants will be awarded to qualified non-profit public charities who have programs which have focused on not only developing, but also implementing anti-bullying programs.
If you’d like to apply for the grant program, you must do it quickly. Applications are due by Friday, November 1, 2013. You can find the full rules and the grant application here.
WWE has also partnered up with GLAAD who’s mission is to amplify the voice of the LGBT community by empowering real people to share their stories, holding the media accountable for the words and images they present, and helping grassroots organizations communicate effectively. By ensuring that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media, GLAAD promotes understanding, increases acceptance, and advances equality.
You may have heard in the news about Fred Rosser (better known as Darren Young) coming out, and openly saying that he is gay, one of the first gay wrestlers to come out openly while still on the active WWE roster. WWE stood behind him the entire way, with a rep saying: “We will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A Star anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation.” This statement was made the day after he had came out. It’s great to see the WWE support their superstars!
