The Fishbein Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Fishbein Orthodontics, is launching its inaugural initiative that takes a stance against bullying and aims to educate students on the importance of accepting of others. EmBraces strives to reward champions of inclusiveness and positivity throughout the community.
Dr. Fishbein and his team want to use their professional skills to give back in every way possible. Through the EmBraces anti-bullying initiative, they hope to build a network of young ambassadors that spread positivity and educate the importance of embracing others.
EmBraces asks parents and students to work on either a video or short essay together that allows the child to explain how they’ve experienced and overcome a bullying experience. Whether it’s being a victim, a bystander, or a former bully who learned just how harmful it can be, Fishbein Orthodontics wants to reward future EmBraces Ambassadors with a chance to win complimentary orthodontic care.
The chosen students will receive treatment free of cost from Fishbein Orthodontics and become the start of a team of young do-gooders in the community that will go on to help their peers learn more about why it’s important for people to embrace each other. EmBraces gives students all the way from grade school to high school the opportunity to share their story and their aspirations to end bullying once and for all.Fishbein Orthodontics is thrilled to help spread the message of inclusivity throughout the community, firmly believing in the future children who know better can build.
