Coupon: 15 percent off at Sears helps fight bullying in South Florida


Sears is offering a coupon for 15 percent off clothes, accessories, shoes and jewelry on Saturday as part of Team Up to Stop Bullying, a national campaign to help students, parents and educators find solutions to this serious problem.

The coupon will come in handy for back-to-school shopping, but, more importantly, 5 percent of purchases will benefit charities that do important work to curb this harmful, destructive behavior that hurts us all.

One of the 55 nonprofits that will benefit is South Florida's The Humanity Project, founded by former Sun Sentinel reporter Bob Knotts.

Based in Dania Beach, the organization's mission focuses on fostering a safe environment in schools through educational workshops and inventive hands-on projects for kids and adults.

For more information about the Humanity Project and its programs, visit or call 954-205-2722. The site also offers resources for kids and parents on bullying.

Click here for the deal. The coupon is good on Saturday, Aug. 11, only.
