Week in Sparks: Anti-Bullying Month, National Coming Out Day, and a Bob Dylan Tribute

This week an iconic American singer/songwriter won a Nobel Prize in Literature, Anti-Bullying Month inspired messages of peace and camaraderie, and National Coming Out Day helped spread stories that matter. Good vibes all around in this week’s Spark stories:

Social Media Moment of the Week: National Coming Out Day

Tuesday’s National Coming Out Day inspired LGBTQ+ people to tell their coming out story on social media, tagging their Tweets, Instagrams, and Facebook posts with #NCOD. We love how @leeannwalkertexasranger made her story come to life with the power of her voice and encouraged others to share their stories.

October is Anti-Bullying Month

The Jets’ PR company uses Spark Page for more engaging press releases. This time they told the story of honoring a middle school for their efforts in preventing bullying in partnership with non-profit Stomp Out Bullying.

The Jets aren’t the only pro-team committed to empowering kids to end bulling. Last month the SF Giants and The Bully Project partnered to get kids to tell stories about times they stood up to bully using Spark Video. See their creations highlighted on The Bully Project Mural!
