Betty White Stands Up For Bullying Victims, Supports Spirit Day

3. As the Vice President of Corporate Strategy at Toyota, Ann Bybee, said:


While our society is making tremendous progress combating bullying behaviors in schools and communities across the country, it is still a devastating epidemic against which we must take a stand. Going purple for Spirit Day is an easy, simple, yet powerful way to show support, open a dialogue, and send a clear message that bullying of any kind isn’t acceptable.

Toyota is sponsoring the Spirit Day App.
