November 11, 2015 - Lights! Camera! Action! Teens 'N Transition interns were put in front of the spotlight last night to begin filming for our very first public service announcement. With the filming talents of Christine Angiello, a past Teens 'N Transition intern and friend of Lindsey, interns were asked a series of questions about why they chose to be a part of PEACE OUTside Campus. Interns spoke openly and candidly about their own experiences while away at college. They shared what they didn't know, what they wished they knew, and what they hope high school students take away after hearing the Teens 'N Transition presentation.
Filming will continue throughout November and December with a January 2016 release date. Look out for more images and clips from our PSA to come!
PEACE OUTside Campus joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement
Pledges to advocate student safety and promote peaceful and safe living environments in college communities.
Elmsford, New York (November 5,2015) - PEACE OUTside Campus, The Lindsey M. Bonistall Foundation has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season. It is with hope that #GivingTuesday will inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the causes they support.
PEACE OUTside Campus’ #GivingTuesday campaign celebrates “A Season of Giving.” Our wish is to #GivePeace and continue our mission of advocating for student safety and promoting peaceful and safe living environments in college communities. “We are pleased that leaders like Governor Cuomo are declaring that ‘Enough is Enough’ in regards to sexual assault, but more needs to be done,” states Kathleen Cooney Bonistall, co-founder of PEACE OUTside Campus. “Sexual assault is just one of many safety issues like hazing, unsafe living conditions, drug and alcohol abuse, and dating violence that are robbing our students of the safety they deserve,” continued Bonistall.
For this New Year, it is our goal to reach thirty high schools in the Spring of 2016 through our Teens ‘N Transition (TNT) and Identify The Risk (ITR) programs. Since 2005, PEACE OUTside Campus has forever impacted the lives of over 10,000 students and their families with our message of student safety. It is our hope that we can continue to #GivePeace and impact the lives of even more students as they prepare to go off to college.
So after your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, join the movement and bring about real change in our local community. Help PEACE OUTside Campus #GivePeace on December 1st!
