“Everyone of us needs to show how much we care for each other and, in the process, care for ourselves.” ~ Princess Diana

Bailey DunbarBailey Dunbar👼 is only 15 years old, but she’s already seen more tragedy than many face in a lifetime. Her twin sister, Morgan, 263d022c92752ed6e2b035b1410bf332committed suicide when they were just 13 years old after her sister was targeted by bullieslittle devil

Two years later, the  Fort Saskatchewan, Canada,  native is channeling her loss into something powerful. She’s now honoring Morgan’s memory by fighting bullying and cyber-bullying,  and working on raising mental health awareness among young people.

Bailey👼 is leading the charge on anti-bullying  with her organization, Morgan’s Memorial Mission SocietyThe group engages in volunteer work to combat bullying and encourage kindness and inclusivity — and won aCrown2Untitled-2Diana Award for her efforts last year.

(To nominate a young changemaker for this year’s Diana Award, which will be presented at a ceremony in London this May, click here.)

Dunbar👼 faced bullies little devil of her own after her sister’s death. After Morgan’s suicide, one of the bullies little devil who had tormented her turned his attention towards Bailey👼 . The abuse got so bad, that at a point, her parents were forced Albert-Einstein-albert-einstein-genius-smiley-emoticon-000718-facebookto get the police 👮involved, she says. The bully little devil was later made to apologize and stop contacting Bailey.👼

Seeing the treatment her sister suffered through her own eyes, Bailey👼 was inspired to make a change. She founded Morgan’s Memorial Mission Society, and with the help of her mom, she was granted official non-profit status.

“After I experienced what it was like to be bullied,  I finally understood why you wouldn’t MISSION MEMORIAL SOCIETYwant to go to school or go out,” Bailey 👼  says. “I decided to take action because after having my own experience, I realized it’s not okay.

“A lot of people are insecure about themselves, and they’ll take it out on other people instead of talking about it.”

Morgan’s Mission Memorial Society has been involved in several projects that hope to spark conversation about bullying, mental health awareness and suicide prevention. Bailey👼 has hosted a benefit concert with Robb Nash, done multiple events with Project Semicolon, smilie king newanother suicide prevention and mental health organization, in her hometown of   Edmonton and around Alberta, Canada,  and spoke out about her own bullying  story and losing her sister on “Beautiful Me Day.”

She’s also been working with local government officials, as well as the  Canadian ministers of health, education and justice, to help create anti-bullying legislation in the country. Bailey👼 worked with Fort Saskatchewan Mayor Gale Katchur and Jessica Littlewood, a member of the legislative assembly, on a proclamation for World Suicide Prevention Day in the town in 2015.

“They were shocked that at such a young age, that I’m doing all of this to change how people see mental illness and bullying” she said of her experience working with the government ministers.

smiley-king-23118707Also in her hometown, Bailey,👼 along with a committee of local parents, has created a “Protective Guardian” award, which is given to a student or young person who has actively worked against bullying  in their school or community.

Leading an organization that encourages kindness and inclusivity made Bailey👼 a perfect fit for the Crown2Diana Award,🌹 which she received in 2016.Crown2 The Diana Award 🌹 also created National Kindness Day, celebrated on March 31, in the late royal’s honor.

ABOUT US

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

That’s why we’re taking action.

We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We’re smilie-movember2addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world. By 2030 we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%. Help us stop men dying too young. Join the movement.
