VoiceNation Joins Forces with Love Our Children USA™ to Keep Kids Safe at School
Love Our Children USA™, creators of STOMP Out Bullying™ partnered with VoiceNation to utilize telephony solutions to reinforce their mission of keeping children safe while school gets back in session.
August 15th, 2011 – VoiceNation was chosen to offer telephony solutions for Love Our Children USA™, the national nonprofit leader and ‘Go-To’ prevention organization fighting all forms of violence and neglect against children. Love Our Children USA™ was founded on a promise to keep America’s children safe and strengthen families. The organization partnered with VoiceNation to gain access to voice communication solutions to help make a difference in the lives of children and their parents.
Love Our Children USA™ was established in 1999 to break the cycle of violence and neglect against children in the U.S., and advocate for child safety and strengthen families. In 2005, they created their signature program, STOMP Out Bullying™ as bullying and cyberbullying grew to affect our country’s kids and teens. Bullying and cyberbullying is a serious issue leaving harsh impressions on American children.
1 out of 4 kids is bullied
43% of teens, 97% of middle schoolers and 47% of older teens 18-24 is cyberbullied
As many as 160,000 students may stay home on any given day because they are afraid of their bullies and/or they just can’t take the pain anymore.
With VoiceNation telephony communication solutions available, Love Our Children USA™ has built STOMP Out Bullying™ as an independent and very successful program fighting to help children and teens. Those effected by bullying and cyberbullying can go to http://www.stompoutbullying.org to seek help and additional information or can call their Help Chat Line 855-790-HELP. The Help Chat line is available to youths 13-24 who are bullied, cyberbullied or at risk for suicide.
Forms of bullying vary from physical bullying and verbal bullying to emotional, racist, and cyberbullying. The unwanted abuse can be minimal or in some cases extreme. But the harsh reality is that the hurt of being bullied has resulted in children and teens claiming their own life. STOMP Out Bullying™ strives to inform children and teens that suicide is not the answer and works to save lives.
“As with any business it is imperative that phone service be a top priority,” states Ross Ellis, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Love Our Children USA™ and STOMP Out Bullying™. “In choosing our 800 phone lines, price and customer service was a top priority. Rather than choose a traditional conglomerate whose service is frustrating at best, we chose to partner with VoiceNation who has exceeded our expectations in helping to handle the large amount of calls we receive on a daily basis. This allows us to help those in need of help immediately and bypasses sales calls and other non-urgent inquiries.”
VoiceNation offers exceptional telecommunication services to non-profit organizations across the country. In May 2011, VoiceNation was recognized as a 2011 BBB International Torch Award winner for their charitable contributions to the community. The company’s Care2Call program is a charitable outreach program that provides non-profit charities access to the latest communication infrastructures needed to make a difference in the lives of those in need.

Love our Children USA™, STOMP Out Bullying™ supporters, including VoiceNation employees, and anyone interested in taking a stand against bullying can actively get involved by wearing a royal blue shirt on Monday, October 3rd, 2011 to kickoff National Prevention Bullying month. “BLUE SHIRT DAY™ – WORLD DAY OF BULLYING PREVENTION” is a grassroots stance allowing people to take action in a positive way on the first Monday of October each year.
