Today, May 8, has become a day to come together and take a stand against bullying.
In 2018, the nation was stunned by the untimely death of 14-year-old Dolly Everett, a victim of relentless bullying.
Dolly's parents, Kate and Tick Everett, established Dolly's Dream to act as a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and work to prevent the precious lives of other children and young people being lost.
Do it for Dolly Day was established on May 8 to bring the community together to celebrate kindness and unite in taking a stand against bullying.
That's the day people spread the Dolly's Dream message by wearing blue and posting on social media using #DoItForDollyDay.
"Blue was Dolly's favourite colour and creating a sea of blue on Do it for Dolly Day reminds people to be kind to those around them," says Kate Everett, Dolly's mum.
The message from Mount Isa Police is that together we need to get our children to speak up and speak out about saying no to bullying and creating a kind and caring community.
