Beyond a Joke Incorporated - Anti Bullying Charity Gala Dinner

Beyond a Joke Incorporated is a registered anti bullying and suicide prevention charity founded by Kate Pennington in honour of her brother Bruce who suffered significant bullying. Bruce turned to drugs to ease the pain but the drugs quickly took his life. Kate Pennington experienced severe bullying in the workplace and decided it was time to do something. Bullying is a national issue and a global issue, in schools and in the workplace. In Australia the Federal Productivity Commission has found bullying is costing the Australian Business Community up to $36 billion dollars in lost productivity, and more than 460,000 Australian Children are bullied per year which accounts for 27% of Australia’s school student population. In the United States of America, 12 of the last 15 school shootings are also bullying related.

According to an announcement made by former Prime Minister Julia Gillard In 2012, more than 2500 people committed suicide in Australia, including 450 children each year. In more than 80 per cent of cases, bullying was a contributing factor.

Beyond a Joke is passionate, committed and determined to eliminate bullying. Beyond a JokeIncorporated are ready to act with programs to deliver in both schools and the workplace and need your help to roll them out, with your help we can create a massive difference.
