In honor of National Nonprofit Day, Rainbow Rabbit is proud to announce that it has officially established its organization as a 501c3: Rainbow Rabbit Educational Services Corp.
The local anti-bullying organization, which has started to leave a footprint at area elementary schools, recently made the change so that it can better serve the K-4 community of students and educators.
“This is such an exciting time for Rainbow Rabbit,” says Joe Vallee Jr., Executive Officer of Rainbow Rabbit Educational Services Corp. “This gives us the ability to apply for grant funding so that we can provide the program to more children and educators, while expanding the overall educational opportunities.”
The story of Rainbow Rabbit relays a strong message to children that everyone should be treated equally. The anti-bullying program, which has received praise from local New Jersey educators, addresses the importance of unity and inclusion, and is used as a tool to teach children important lessons of acceptance, kindness and caring.
Washington Township School’s, Birches Elementary, used the Kindergarten-4th grade-based curriculum to implement their ‘Great Kindness Challenge Week.’ The week-long event featured school staff and students showcasing their kindness initiatives. Through Rainbow Rabbit’s new status as a non-profit, the organization aims to expand their statewide reach and implement programs in ways such as Birches Elementary.
