Introducing Stand Up and Smile
We are so excited to announce our newest community initiative, Stand Up and Smile! Through this program, our hope is to teach kids to ‘be a buddy, not a bully’ and to make bullying a thing of the past. Though Dr. Jeff and the Amazing Smiles team have always been passionate about anti-bullying education, our Stand Up and Smile program will allow us to reach even more kids in our community, and help provide the resources necessary to address this important issue.
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
Amazing Smiles teamed up with the wonderful Megan Meier Foundation to bring anti-bullying education to the classroom. Tina Meier, founder of Megan Meier Foundation, created the organization with a vision ‘to live in a world where bulling and cyberbullying no longer exist’, and combines video plus facilitated activates to teach students how to identify bullying, be a better friend to others, and celebrate the individuality of their peers.
If you are interested in having the Megan Meier Foundation virtual seminar gifted to your school, please reach out to our Community Relations Coordinator Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Kids and parents both play a part of creating the change we need to stamp out bullying forever, so our pledge reminds our community to include those who are being left out, to accept people who are different from themselves, and to speak up when they see bullying.
