Welcome to the journey and the TAG 4 CHANGE MOVEMENT!

...Note:  Thanks for coming and please watch the video below. We are excited to offer some great rewards for your generous contributions and helping us to CREATE CONFIDENT KIDS!

ABOUT THE TAG 4 CHANGE MOVEMENT

Hi, I'm Marty Ward, creator of a dynamic program that saves lives in more ways than one. I'm excited you're here. One of the things I teach kids is to believe that " BEING ME MATTERS!" As I've been teaching the TAG method of confidence building, I've seen tremendous transformation and healing take place in kids and adults.

When kids know they MATTER, they don't commit suicide, or harm themselves. In fact, they stand up for themselves and others. More than 4,400 youth a year commit suicide and thousands of those deaths are due to bullying. In America, over 100,000 kids don’t go to school each day due to their fear of confronting the bully.

This has to STOP!  

In this video I talk about the importance of creating confident kids who believe in themselves and why this mission is so important for us to complete. Our kids are our future and it's critical that we give them the tools to be more confident now. When we TAG Kids for Success™ each day, by honoring and valuing their Talents, Abilities andGifts (TAGs), we create future confident leaders who will not stand for what is currently a growing problem.

The kids of today, our leaders of tomorrow, will create a win/win atmosphere where both the bully and the bullied are Confidence Boosters vs Fault Finders. They will be a part of the awareness that BEING ME MATTERS!

In fact, one of my friends asked me to tell them my story. I did and we both were in tears as I recalled that the TAG 4 Change Movement™ began one fall afternoon in 2011 when I read about a little 10-year-old girl – cheerleader, honor roll student, Ashlynn Conner of Ridge Farm, Illinois, who chose to kill herself rather than go to school to confront the bully one more time.  

I cried out, “ENOUGH! Not another bright light of a child needs to be snuffed out!”

That day, I founded Create Confident Kids to Eliminate Bullying that has become the 501c3 non-profit organization, Confidence Eliminates Bullying, Inc.

Since then, the Confidence Eliminates Bullying Programs and the TAG method have been taught to kids, teachers, parents, and grandparents in Florida and as far away as Uganda and Tanzania."

You might ask, "Why Uganda and Tanzania? That's another amazing story. Pastor Buni Alex from Uganda emailed me one day, just over 3 years ago and said, "I found your book in the garbage alongside the road here in Uganda. I want to know more." How random does that seem? Yet, you don't know where your passion and mission will lead.

Through training with me, only over the Internet, Pastor Buni has established our programs in 8 Elementary Schools, 2 High Schools and many churches where he has reached thousands of children, parents and teachers. He's taught Confidence Eliminates Bullying programs to the Masai people in Tanzania as well.

My mission and passion is for every child and adult to believe in themselves so no situation, no person, can ever steal their confidence. This is the reason I've created this campaign.

Raising our goal of $20,000, will deliver the programs in Africa. Our greater goal of $50,000 will provide the funds to teach kids, parents and teachers all over the US.

Through schools, PTAs, Churches and other civic organizations, using our Confidence Eliminates Bullying  programs, we will succeed in creating more confident kids, getting us much closer to eliminating bullying. Raising these funds means we can make a bigger difference in the US and around the world. YOU can be a part of that.

WHY THE TAG 4 CHANGE MOVEMENT AND CONFIDENCE ELIMINATES BULLYING?

Besides the stories you heard above, and what I shared in the video, some of us do survive the damaging effects of bullying. In fact, I went from being worth a million dollars to having $7.41 in my bank account because I didn't believe in myself due to bullying. Then, I turned my life and business around using my own system.

Some children (and adults) don't survive because they haven't been taught that they MATTER. The impact of bullying can be so devastating that we lose the precious gift that each of them brought to the world.

The truth is ... all of us can do something about bullying and this campaign is designed to bring awareness to one of the ways that has been proven time and again to be extremely effective ... Confidence Eliminates Bullying Programs and the TAG Kids for Success Method™.

Why I care so much is because of my own experiences of being bullied for decades. As a teacher, school-based social worker and now as a Transformation Strategist for entrepreneurs, I also have witnessed the pain and devastating effect that bullying can have on self-esteem, personal and financial success.

One of the reasons this campaign has been created is to raise an initial $20,000 to fund our TAG 4 Change Movement's trip in March to Uganda, Africa. 

On this trip, I'm going to ...

  1. Provide more in-depth training to Pastor Buni Alex, Liaison to Confidence Eliminates Bullying programs in Africa,
  2. Inspire, teach and have over 5000 children, and 1000 parents and teachers, experience the TAG methodology of creating confident kids to eliminate bullying, and
  3. Meet with the District of Education Minister Alice Doya to get the Eliminating Bullying programs in every classroom.
  4. To deliver water filters to every school and church I visit so they have clean water to drink every day. 
  5. To buy a "football" i.e. soccer ball for each school so the kids can good clean fun! 

American Photojournalist, Christina Stuart, will be capturing our journey all on film. While we are in Africa, my team back home will be sharing the excitement of our adventure with you on Facebook and in emails, so you can be a part of the journey.

You will not only see the work we are doing, but also some of the amazing results Pastor Buni has created with our programs in Africa. He says that not only are more children going to school each day and parents are telling the schools that their kids are cooperating more at home, but also that:  

"Children have started putting on new glasses. They can now foresee their future. They now know that success is not a matter of environment but discovering how  T alented A ble & G ifted they are. They always talk of their TAG s.Children now believe that they were born with everything that can make them successful and happy."

After returning to the US from Africa, we will continue the campaign, sharing more adventures as I move across the US,  teaching and inspiring thousands through the TAG 4 Change Movement. 

Be a part of this journey with us by contributing at any level and receiving some totally fun and AMAZING REWARDS as our 'Thank You' for helping us get this important work moving in a bigger way.

and to Make Your Generous Contribution

Consider donating at the Water Maker Level so that each of the 10 schools where Confidence Eliminates Bullying programs are making a difference can now have 300 gallons of clean water every day for 10 years and a soccer ball so the kids have fun and develop their (TAGs) - Talent as a soccer players using their Abilities of athletic, coordinated, flexible, adaptable, creative, imaginative, inventive and to give the Gifts of inspiring other kids, bringing the school together to watch a game, and provide leadership by teaching other kids sportsmanship.  

The Reward you will get is not only a photo of your Filtration System with your company's logo surrounded by the school children holding your soccer ball but also knowing that the kids can stay healthy drinking clean water for 10 years and have fun every day because of YOUR contribution! 

LET'S GET CLEAR ... WHAT ARE TAGs?

Everyone has them. They are what makes us uniquely special - What makes you uniquely YOU and me, uniquely ME is by expressing our Talents, Abilities and Gifts (TAGs). TAGs give us concrete reasons to know why we are somebody; why we matter! 

 

BEING ME MATTERS!

Talents are what you love to do – dance, sing, draw,  play football, soccer, basketball, cheerlead, science, act, build blocks, cook, be funny, karate, write poetry, art, music, etc…

Abilities are what you use to express those amazing Talents  – be creative, imaginative, inventive, mathematical, athletic, flexible, adaptable, sense of color/style/design, intuitive, etc…

Gifts are what you give when you combine your Talents and Abilities – make us laugh, give an inspiring performance, be a great team member, make a thoughtful gift, be an innovative problem-solver, teach your friends, bring us joy, be a computer whiz, a motivating leader, create an inventive picture, make beautiful pottery, write a powerful poem or story, sing an inspiring song, be a thoughtful sibling, kick the goal, give others help, find the answers, set the table, win the contest, organize the toys, do fun tricks, be a loving child, be a loyal friend, set a positive example, etc…

Now it's your turn to Express your TAGs and share the TAGs of your children and what a gift they are to our world.
