Christine with Miles the Monkey
Christine Heathman, Master Aesthetician, CEO and Founder of GlyMed Plus and the GlyMed Plus Institute of Skin Science™ releases the following statement via Raffles Entertainment regarding the anti-bullying campaign "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil" and the anti-bullying mascot Miles the Monkey:
"The passion behind my commitment to support the anti-bullying campaign 'Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil' stem from my own raw bullying experiences that still are a vivid snap shot in my mind. As a child and teen, I experienced bullying from family members and school mates because I was a thin girl, plus I had severe acne break-outs. The bullying was unrelenting & soul destroying. However, I refused to allow the taunting and physical violence I endured by the hands of these bullies to define who I was then, and who I am today.
"When I started my skin care company GlyMed Plus 25 years ago, my commitment to help children and teens with horrible acne was one of the first and foremost projects that I had to accomplish. I did this so children would not endure bullying because of a bad skin condition. I still continue on this mission, and I am pleased to join forces with Artist for Global Unity in support of 'Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil.' It's time to bring attention to the epidemic of bullying by making our voices heard. One way we can make a difference is by reaching out to our law enforcement and law makers for new laws and consequences of these bullying assaults.
"It does not matter to a bully if you are pretty, skinny, overweight, black, white, brown, yellow, gay, straight, family, stranger! Bullies have an agenda! Please join me with GlyMed Plus, Artist for Global Unity, and Miles The Monkey to put an end to bullying.
"We all can make it happen."
