In November 2014, The Bully Project named S.A.B.B.'s Founder, Ashley Craig their "Upstander of the Week". Ashley was ecstatic and will be forever grateful. It was a fantastic honor from an amazing organization!
Throughout October Ashley continued pursing her degree in Psychology and presented at numerous different organizations. One of the highlights was the "Love Yourself A Lot" Concert in Scranton, PA. The event was at the Masonic Temple on the 19th, and goes down as one of the most impactful events Ashley has been to.
In Early September Ashley got a call from the Award-Winning Director of "Bully", Mr. Lee Hirsch himself. It was a call Ashley never thought would happen, but Lee was supportive and was interested in what S.A.B.B. was and the work we have done. It was an incredible moment for all of us at S.A.B.B. Inc.

On January 17, 2015, S.A.B.B. Inc. turned 4, and Ashley celebrated 5 years of work. It is amazing to be able to see something that we thought was impossible be so alive now. Ashley dreams big, and in honor of S.A.B.B. Inc. turning 4 she launched #OperationEllen. A campaign aimed at getting the attention of the one and only Ellen DeGeneres. Want to Help? Send an email to the show here. Want to help us try to get her attention through social media? Post a picture from the website, a video from YouTube that was made by us, or just mention S.A.B.B. Inc. in a post that has Ellen tagged in it with the #OperationEllen.
We appreciate any and all support! #OperationEllen. We Can Do This.
