National Bullying Prevention Month
The southern Minnesota town of Blue Earth will become Orange Earth in support of October’s National Bullying Prevention Month. Orange is the designated color of bullying prevention. The 25-foot toga on the Green Giant statue in Blue Earth will turn orange Wednesday in support of bullying prevention.
Every day in schools across the country, more than 160,000 kids are bullied. Being picked on is nothing new, but in recent years there have been several stories of bully victims taking their own lives.
