The Anti-Bullying Initiative and REACH Fundraising understand the challenges many youth face on a daily basis and have teamed up with the Stingers to bring awareness, provide education and support for youth and their parents.

"REACH Fundraising and the Anti-Bullying Initiative are very excited to partner with the Stingers and bring Kelly Robbins to Willmar and focus on our mission with youth around the nation,” said Chad Johnson Anti-Bullying Initiative and REACH Fundraising National Sales Director. “Kelly’s message will not only entertain all those in attendance, she will provide the tools to bring an end to bullying and mean behavior among youth,” added Johnson.

Robbins is a motivational speaker from St. Augustine, Florida who is presently Mrs. East Coast International 2017. The Mrs. International pageant is world-wide and was developed to promote today's married women, their accomplishments, and commitment to family and marriage. Robbins’ program focus includes a powerful anti-bullying message in her Bully-Proof Vest Program. The Bully-Proof Vest is a keynote that teaches the participants how to manage their thoughts, which dictate their feelings, and ultimately determines their behavior. Participants are taught how to take ownership of their own thoughts which influence how they feel about circumstances, situations, and people in their lives. Through this powerful program, the participants gain victory over any bully in their lives and changing youth lives, all over the world.

“The Stingers organization is very grateful to have an opportunity to partner with the Anti-Bullying Initiative,” said Stingers co-owner Marc Jerzak. “Their goal to provide awareness, support for those who are being bullied, and to bring an end to bullying among our youth is definitely a mission we want to be a part of,” added Jerzak.
