When I get a little tired and think, "Why did I decide to take on bullying? This is too big and too hard. My career in television and public relations was fine," I think about Alex.
Alex has Asperger's and although I don't have a child with Asperger's, I feel responsible for all the kids that do who go to school and are bullied. Kids with Asperger's are 6 times more likely to be bullied and it doesn't make sense.
The Bully Project is the first feature length documentary to take on this issue. It provides an insight into what kids go through but it's goal is to provide solutions as well.
If you want to be a part of the success of this film and care to donate, IndieGoGo makes it easy. Alex and all the kids profiled in the film are worth it.
