Rainbow Rabbit Receives Grant From Investors Foundation to Further Develop Anti-Bullying Program

Rainbow Rabbit Educational Services Corp. recently received a grant from Investors Foundation at the Pitman, New Jersey branch of Investors Bank. The grant will help further the organization’s mission of empowering children, parents, and educators, who are all navigating their way through tough challenging times through their Anti-Bullying Educational Program, which provides tools to help students learn how to handle difficult situations in and out of the classroom, through an easily implemented interactive program.

“This is such a proud day for all of us associated with Rainbow Rabbit, and it’s particularly gratifying because this happened during National Bullying Prevention Month” said Joe Vallee, Executive Director at Rainbow Rabbit Educational Services Corp. “Our organization shares the same vision that Investors Bank has in regards to shaping the lives of young children. We are changing children’s lives with our anti-bullying program, and thanks to organizations like Investors, we have the ability to continually improve on what is already a fantastic program.”

About Rainbow Rabbit

Rainbow Rabbit Educational Services Corp. is an IRS-registered 501c non-profit organization (Federal Tax ID: 82-1643193).  The character of Rainbow Rabbit was created by former Disney animator Arthur Vallee. It was his strong belief that this tale of unity and inclusion, with an emphasis on the importance of belonging, would capture the hearts of children and adults.

When Rainbow Rabbit started his adventure, he was very sad and lonely. He looked different from everybody else and was not accepted by those around him. But thanks to the kindness of the queen, he realized that his unique qualities made him special. This made Rainbow Rabbit optimistic that his future would be as bright and colorful as he was. His story sends a strong message that everyone should be treated equally. The story has been adapted into a comprehensive Anti-Bullying Program spanning grades K through 4. Rainbow Rabbit’s mission is to address the serious issues affecting today’s children and to bring about positive change through the program.
