STOMP Out Bullying™
WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
Love Our Children USA  was founded in 1999 and is proud that we have been able to serve children for the past 14 years. In 2005 we created STOMP Out Bullying™. As we continue to serve and help children, we have amended our name to STOMP Out Bullying .  No worries we are still serving children under Love Our Children USA  under a d/b/a with STOMP Out Bullying as the umbrella organization.


See our new look at STOMP Out Bullying!

This past October's Blue Shirt Day World Day of Bullying Prevention we were proud to be sponsored by Bon-Ton Stores for the second year in a row.

The initiative was even more successful. With the help of celebrities who donated their time to make videos about the initiative, we were able to extend our reach to the U.K., Portugal, Japan, Korea, Venezuela, Uruguay and Mexico. To see the celebrity videos

And we were thrilled to appear on
Good Day NY and be featured on Good Morning America with Sam Champion and Josh Elliott who not only wore our Blue Shirt, but spoke about STOMP Out Bullying
and Blue Shirt Day World Day of Bullying Prevention.

We were equally excited to be oncluded in 
InStyle Magazine who talked about us with actress Michelle Trachtenberg ...  OK Magazine who talked about us with actress/singer Kristin Chenowith and stylist to the stars Brad Goreski ... Just Jared Jr. who talked about us with actress Hilary Duff ... STAR Magazine who talked about us with actress Kristin Chenowith ... and Look To The Stars ... AM New York ... and Fishbowl NY --Lunch at Michaels.

Additionally for the second year in a row we partnered with 
Aeropostale to educate students about bullying prevention.

Child Abuse & Incest: Statistics and Facts

  • Four children die every day in the United States as a result of child abuse and neglect.
  • Nearly 80% of children who die because of abuse and neglect are younger than five years old.
  • Most child victims of abuse or neglect suffer at the hands of someone they know.
Child abuse and neglect can create a lifetime of harmful effects on its victims. Studies show that child abuse and neglect can negatively impact children's ability to perform well in school, to develop healthy relationships with others, and create social issues with consequences that impact an entire community.
