October is Bullying Prevention Month. All month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote bullying prevention awareness. To kick off National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month California Families in Focus in partnership with New York Life is hosting the 2nd Annual I Matter 2 Youth Fashion Show and Music Concert. The I Matter 2 Youth Fashion Show and Music Concert was created by survivors of suicide and bullying to shed light on these two serious issues that plague our community by using Art and Music as a fun way to not only offer resources but to highlight our youth’s talent and to show other youth who might be experiencing Bullying or contemplating Suicide how special they are and that they Matter. The I Matter 2 Youth Fashion Show and Music Concert is scheduled for October 1, 2021 from 7-9pm at Scottish Rite Event Center and it will be a hybrid event, which means that we can invite people internationally! Youth designers will create 10-12 designs incorporating the Anti-Bullying and Suicide Awareness colors, which are Teal, Purple and powder blue, a positive message for each and butterflies and daffodils; both representing rebirth and new beginnings. A youth orchestra will be playing live while the models are walking the runway (Positive Songs) and this too will be an opportunity for our youth musicians to showcase their talent and encourage other youth to use music as a form of therapy to express their emotions and heal from their trauma. We would like to invite you to join our life saving efforts by making a monetary donation, food donation or gift certificate donation. We are expecting 200 guests but anything you donate will be greatly appreciated and for a good cause. Please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or 562- 277-1891.
