As you might expect there are a lot of geeks that wander the halls here at the ThinkGeek MegaPlex. We also have a lot of people who are just "geek friendly." Heck, we even have a few employees who might qualify as "bros." When you're working here, you're working with people who aren't going to care if you roll into work dressed as a Ghostbuster just because it's Tuesday...
...and it's awesome.
The thing is many of us, and we'll guess a lot of you as well, grew up in a world where being a geek, nerd, dork, or just flat out different was something that would get you shunned, made fun of, and bullied. Just for being who you are.
It's time to take a stand, and we'd like you to Stand with Us Against Bullying.
This month we are asking you, our friends, to Stand With Us Against Bullying. We want to do what we can to let the world know that bullying can and should end now. If you're feeling bullied, you aren't alone; there are others out there who will stand with you. You might not even be on the receiving end of being bullied, but if you know someone who is, you have the ability to stand together.
ThinkGeek has partnered with Pacer.org, who has declared October "Bullying Prevention Month." When you shop at ThinkGeek.com during the month of October, you'll have the chance to buy a keychain that will let the world know that you are standing with us against bullying. To do our part, we will be donating 100% of the profits from the keychain to Pacer in an effort to help increase awareness about bullying and to aide in providing resources to those who need it.
You may not personally be a victim of bullying, but you likely know someone who is or was. The keychain and your donation will be your statement that nobody has to go through this alone.
