Rhonda’s Stop Bullying Foundation for Girls (RSBFG) received it’s 501c3 status in February 2013 (within 4 months of submitting the form 1023). The purpose of the nonprofit is to eduate girls to ‘Define Yourself Before Others Do’. The Organization offers programs focusing on empowering girls to become leaders of thier own selves in order to become less vulnerable to bullying, abuse, and pressure from others. One program of the nonprofit is a weekly Stop Bullying Q &A with founder and President Rhonda Carr, and Dr. Cheri L. McDonald, Phd, MFT. This is an online forum for girls to ask questions and get guidance on how to deal with specific issues or situations.
A recent article published in The Daily Courier (Prescott, Arizona) examines the current state of bullying in the US and highlights the organization’s focus. On February 8, 2014, Rhonda’s Stop Bulllying Foundation for Girls will hold its next Seminar for girls between the ages of 9 and 12. In the Seminar, Ms. Carr teaches “The Five C’s” – courage, civility, confidence, creativity, and elegant carriage – as tools to build self esteem.
