VITTO MENDEZ, lost brother to bullying, now runs Cool 2 Be Kind

October is Bullying Prevention Month, dedicated to shining a light on the issue of bullying that occurs in many corners of the United States and the world. After its first success as a club in his brother’s school, Vitto Mendez explained how many Cool 2 Be Kind clubs/chapters formed throughout different schools in Los Angeles and other areas. The non-profit organization originated after the death of Daniel Mendez, a 16-year-old boy who took his own life in 2009 due to being bullied.
