Bullying as a phenomenon is the absence of understanding, support, compassion, empathy, kindness and fulfillment. 

Nowadays, bullying became general in the society especially in our youth and there’s no escape from the harsh words that others can throw us. It is very unfortunate that bullying is existing everywhere - in school, home and above all, in social media. A study reports that 1 out 2 Filipino students have experienced or witnessed bullying in their schools. It has also taken a new form especially with the advent of social media as it provides a more convenient avenue to spread hate and thrive on people’s insecurities.

Personally, I understand and relate how hurtful it was to be mocked and insulted when I was in grade school. The effect of simple words carved in my heart and it’s hard to regain trust self-confidence.

This is the reason why I didn’t even think twice to support the #IAmDifferent campaign of Penshoppe, wherein they empower and celebrate today’s youth differences and uniqueness.

Penshoppe’s #IAmDifferent campaign aims to form a movement to inspire everyone to embrace who they are despite what other people may think and believe that “Being different is something to celebrate and be proud of.”

At the core of this campaign is Penshoppe’s newest collection of tees and caps which are emblazoned with the campaign statements 
“I Am Different” 
and “Different is good”. 

Each t-shirt from the limited edition #IAmDifferent collection features construction from luxe fabric and with a special identifier: a unique serial number. The movement has already started on social media, with a growing number of posts tagged by ClubPenshoppePH members and other local personalities.

Proceeds from the #IAmDifferent collection will benefit development of a module that discourages bullying and encourages acceptance in public school children, in partnership with Teach For The Philippines. They aim to provide excellent education by most promising young leaders. It advocates to transform its leaders into lifelong passion for education equity and opportunity in expanding educational access.

Be different, stand against bullying. Support the #IAmDifferent campaign.
