October is National Bullying Prevention Month, providing a national spotlight on an important issue facing a reported one in five kids: bullying. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, the preeminent bullying prevention charity in the nation, is on a mission to drive social change that ends bullying. The organization works to put important resources in the hands of parents, educators and students alike, working to ensure that bullying is no longer an accepted childhood rite of passage. Today PACER and Clarisonic®, the creator of the #1 most-recommended skin-cleansing device by U.S. dermatologists*, announce a new partnership and campaign designed to drive awareness and raise donations for PACER’s bullying prevention efforts. For every #CleanTheMean social post shared on Facebook or Instagram this year, Clarisonic will donate $1 to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, up to $100,000.
