"I WANT EVERY KID WHO’S EVER BEEN BULLIED TO KNOW THAT THEY’RE NOT ALONE, AND THAT THE EXPERIENCE WILL MAKE THEM STRONGER, KINDER, BRAVER, AND BETTER." - NATE NEUSTADT
Nate wanted to do something different for his bar mitzvah project. He decided to write a book for kids like him who are victims of bullying and donate proceeds to an organization devoted to supporting the mental and emotional wellness of young people.
Bullied Not Broken: When The Bullies Don’t Win will inspire kids of all ages with stories of famous entertainers, politicians, artists, and business icons who were bullied, all that they learned, and how it influenced the rest of their lives. Nate also shares his deeply personal story of bullying that started in elementary school, how he dealt with it and ultimately triumphed.

ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER
At the core of Nate’s idea for this book was a fundraising effort to support an organization devoted to helping tweens, teens and young adults thrive. After doing a lot of research, he chose Born This Way Foundation, founded in 2012 by Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta. It builds action-oriented programs and useful resources for youth to thrive and drive change in their communities, and works with leading researchers and youth themselves to improve understanding of the factors that affect their wellness and empowerment.
