This drawing is dedicated to Caine Smith, an impressive 11-year-old PR natural who spoke out about bullying. Movie director, Lee Hirsch captured a video interview with Caine that continues to be shared virally, bringing more attention to his cause and "The Bully Project".I hope the drawing will help fuel more sharing through social media, draw ongoing attention to Caine’s story and "The Bully Project", and encourage more people to stand up, speak up and help stop bullying. Background on the story and an update on Caine are included in this article.
