Destination Imagination Steps Up Against Bullying
By Michael John Sullivan
Destination Imagination CEO Dr. Chuck Cadle (far left in picture with Michael John Sullivan and Shelley Larkin) stepped up against bullying with his pen and his generosity last month. Cadle wrote the foreword in the new SockKids‘ book,, “The SockKids Stand Up Against Bullying.” Cadle expressed his profound thoughts on the issue of bullying and the impact it has on all our lives.
In addition, Cadle purchased 2,500 books of the SockKids’ book and has distributed over 2,000 of them to educators, volunteers, and Destination Imagination team managers.
This beautiful act of kindness has already had far reaching impact. While at the 2016 Destination Imagination Global Finals in Knoxville, Tennessee, many parents and children approached the SockKids booth and expressed their gratitude for the story, the book, and the message it is sending.
Children also told us how they were bullied and that they were happy Destination Imagination and the SockKids were focusing on this important issue.
Cadle remains dedicated to this cause and continuing to make an even deeper impact. “It was a great launch to the book,” he said. “We’re happy it’s reaching people.”
Cadle says he’s going to dedicate his energy and resources in making sure the impact is felt world wide.
And the SockKids are equally happy to have collaborated with Cadle and Destination Imagination. We will be providing links in the future to the book as well as featuring it on our website.
