Teen Ink's Videos to End Bullying

This September we are releasing our latest book, "Bullying Under Attack - True Stories Written by Teen Victims, Bullies and Bystanders" and we want to do all we can to reach out to everyone who sent us their story. While we could not publish all the stories in the book, we really want to post your story online in video format so you can tell the world what you have experienced. We hope you will join us now and help make a difference.

Please send us a video testimonial about your bullying experience. You don't have to do anything fancy, just record your story, standing or sitting, and keep it to under 5 minutes, if possible. We think our national anti-bullying video campaign might prevent abuse, humiliation and maybe even save some lives.
