Yellow Ribbon :
Meaning: We’ve all seen this symbol used to support our troops, but it is also a symbol for MIA/POW, suicide prevention, adoptive parents, amber alerts, bladder cancer, spina bifida, endometriosis, and a general symbol for hope. A yellow ribbon with a heart is used to represent the survivors left behind after a suicide.

However, there isn't a specific ribbon for bullying.  So I tought maybe purple & white which would incorporate domestic violence and innocence of others, or should yellow be in it to remember all those who have lost their lives after commiting suicide because of bullying?????  There was no simple answer as to what it should be but it needs to be something which is remembered and unite people in the fight against bullying.

My possible examples/styles :

   


Maybe an idea to use something like above a purple & white polka dot and then a gold pin to keep the ribbon together which would then also be incorporating the yellow for suicide.

Either way the decision is yours.  FS2B has always been about giving everyone a voice to sperak so let me know what you think, what your preference is and hopefully we can get something made in the near future. 

Bullying is as serious as any other so we need our ribbon!
