Ditch the Label state that 'as many as 1 in 2 people have experienced bullying at some point in their lives', a sad and startling statistic highlighting the prevalence of bullying, not just within schools but increasingly across social media and the local community. From our experience of working within schools and colleges, whilst recognising the provision and support services available at The Orange Box, we had the welcomed opportunity to contribute to the Orange Box's own, Anti Bullying campaign over the Half term holidays. Using our donated sweatshirts, we engaged an enthusiastic group of first time machinists in some fashion inspired activism, transforming discarded clothes into a slogan printed wrist band that portrayed messages of support and empowerment for those affected by bullying.
