SURPRISE A FRIEND – Weekly Stand #17

Doing something nice and surprising for someone who’s been bullied can go a long way to reduce the effects of bullying. According to a 2015 study, researchers found that surprises do more to make us happy than pleasant events we expect. If you know someone who is getting bullied, whether it’s a close friend or not, make plans to surprise them this week. You could brighten their day with cupcakes or by slipping an anonymous note in their locker telling them how important they are. Whether you get to see their reaction or not, you’ll know that you did your best to help, and that’s what matters.
