Vice-President of The Camel Project and Business Development Officer at Wells Fargo
"The Camel Project is important to me because society needs to do better. Bullying is a primitive behavior that leads to negative impacts on emotional, physical, and financial health. If not addressed, it can lead to increased vandalism, domestic abuse, mass shootings, suicide, among other problems. We as an evolving species need to create more awareness around the detrimental effects that bullying has on families, workplaces, and individuals of all ages. Today’s advances in technology have created more pervasive incidents of bullying. We need to elevate the dialog and increase the collaborative impact."

"Bullying is a growing issue as reflected in the increasing violence in our schools and the increasing awareness of sexual harassment in, and out of, the workplace. The Camel Project is attempting to address this issue both in schools and in society at large. As a board member, I look forward to assisting Pam and the other board members in combating this stain on our society."

Robin Gray
Robin J. Gray, Esq.
The Law Office of Robin J. Gray and General Counsel of The Camel Project
"I resonate with the Camel Project as I was a victim years ago of bullying and domestic abuse. I see the consequences of bullying in the legal system when managing cases involving children and youth as well as custody and divorce cases as well as individuals in the prison system. If bullying and domestic abuse were prevented and yet better, eliminated, there would not be the number of complex emotional and legal issues currently facing the system today."

Nick Hill
Chief Programming Officer at Bethany Childrens Home
"I elected to join the Camel Project because I truly believe in the mission of being an advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves, the bullied. The Camel Project is unlike many organizations and started their roots here in the backyard of Berks County with a vision and hope for something great to cover not just Berks County but one day the state and further to provide insight and education to the effects of bullying. Often times our attention turns to the young kid bullying another kid, but we need to look deeper, bullying is most often a learned behavior. So as adults in this community it is our responsibility to the future generations to educate ourselves in all aspects of this topic, to hopefully prevent it from occurring in our schools and communities. I end with a quote, “Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” This project, exemplifies what it means to be a champion for our community.

"The Camel Project hits home with me. I have been a victim of bullying myself. We all handle it differently, for me being dyslexic was one of my first exposure to being bullied. I have had the privilege of being bullied, not only by children, but adults and educational institutions too. I have always defended those who have been bullied, be it in school, work or social settings. I have gone through Pams B.E.L.L.Y. program, because I was interested in being a better person. I still have emotional issues from the past. I believe that people have no idea that words can leave an emotional scar without them realizing it. Then there are those who need all the help they can get. Enter the The Camel Project! I still see bullying happening in the workforce and being taught, not only in family structure, but friends and peers. Sadly, even by teachers of education! I believe The Camel Project is proactive and shows steps in creating a solution which can eradicate bullying, rather than treating an incident that allow emotions to continue to fester and allow bad traits to be passed to the next generation."

"The mission of the Camel Project is so important to me because as a victim of bullying in my teenage years, I can relate to the students that I teach and see every day. It is important to spread the message of the Camel Project so that we can continue to raise awareness and stop bullying by spreading positivity and light. Words have such a powerful impact on one another and it's important that we use the right words. I am honored to be able to help the Camel Project in creating solutions for this ever-growing problem in our community."

"The Camel Project is important to me because it shows actual steps on how to stop bullying now. Unlike other programs used in education, it is proactive not reactive, or only informational. As a former educator, I know how important it is to implement programs such as The Camel Project. I challenge school districts, to be honest with themselves and admit that the programs they are currently using are not enough. It is time to utilize a program that helps eliminate that problem and not just check off the "bullying box."

"The Camel Project's mission to STOP Bullying is very near and dear to my heart. Over forty years ago, I experienced bullying first hand as a student growing up in our county school system. In today's fast-paced world and increasing technology, bullying behavior has grown tremendously. I am honored to be a part of this organization that wants to eliminate bullying entirely."

"I met Pam Gockley at a networking event. We had not met previously and we hit it off immediately. We decided that we should meet for lunch so we could get to know each other. After hearing Pam’s story and the passion she has for anti-bullying I couldn’t help but feel the need to help with this very important initiative. I too had experience with bullying as my ex-husband is a bully and I understand how bullies are not just children but also adults. Being a target of a bully made me understand the need for education and programs to help reduce the amount of bullying in our community. I’ve been involved in many non-profits over the years and after meeting Pam I can say that her organization and her personality are one of the best matches I’ve made in a very long time. I am looking forward to a long relationship with both Pam and The Camel Project."
