ABOUT BOOKS AGAINST BULLYING:
Maddie is the world's biggest hockey fan with the biggest heart, and when she learned about ShineALigh7 and their mission to support organizations in their anti-bullying, youth mental health awareness, and suicide prevention efforts, she wanted to do something to help. At 10 years old, she held a little book sale in the driveway, and it has turned into so much more; Since staring Books Against Bullying, Maddie has raised close to $10,000 for organizations and causes related to anti-bullying, youth mental health, and suicide prevention in kids, including support to families who have lost their young children to suicide.
Now 12 and in the 7th grade, Maddie’s a busy kid who plays hockey and takes school very seriously, but she’s never wavered in her dedication to this important cause and other important causes that help children. In August 2019, Maddie ran an initiative to raise money to put books into classrooms in our community. She raised $400, and at $1.00 a book, gave 400 books to teachers both in our communities and around the country.
Because she's such a hockey fan, one of Maddie's goals for 2019 was to donate $100.00 to children's charities supported by NHL teams/players, with priority going to anti-bullying, mental health, or suicide prevention efforts. She donated $900 to nine organizations during the 2018-2019 hockey season, and will continue her quest this season!
