Hi everyone! It’s Phoebe the Cyber Crime Dog here!
My mom, Jayne Hitchcock, has entered in the Pepsi Refresh Project. She is trying to win a grant for $50,000 to go to middle and high schools to teach students how to stay safer online.
There are so many schools that don’t have the budget to pay for her to come, so if she wins this grant, that means she can cast a wider net to get the word out about cyber safety.
Plus, that means she can bring me along so that I can teach kids not to be cyberbullies!!!!
For the entire month of November, you can vote *every day* for her project at http://www.refresheverything.com/onlinesafetyand you can text a second vote – text 109782 to 73774 (Pepsi)
Thank you – Roo Roo!
Rumpy here! I support what Phoebe and her mom do. There are so many more dangers kids face online, not only from strangers, but from people they know. There have been many publicized cases of sexting, cyber-bullying, and sexual harassment. In fact, just yesterday a poll revealed that half the children asked stated that they had been sexually harassed. So please vote for Phoebe. Thank you.
