Bubby008 is an ace penguin pal. They've got loads of great buddies (loves to go out shopping with them on the island) and always looks out for others. They recently helped settle a disagreement between two penguins and made sure they were friends again afterwards! How brill is that? Looks like they're getting into the Halloween spirit too! *Howls*
Bubby008 gets 10,000 coins and the POTW background. If you know a penguin who's kind to others or is a great online friend, let me know in the comments!

In support of National Bullying Prevention Month, I thought it would be a good idea to share some tips I found from the PACER National Bullying Prevention Center website.
Bullying can happen anywhere, it can happen in your school or even while you're online. We do our best to keep everyone safe but if you notice yourself or someone else being bullied, here's what to do:
SPOT: Bullying can be physical, such as pushing, hitting, or taking and breaking someone else's things. It can also be verbal or online, such as name calling, sending mean messages, or making fun of another person. All these are meant to hurt another person and are not okay.
BE HEARD: There are lots of things you can do if you see bullying. Here are a few ways to help:
- Ask the person bullying to stop. They might not realize that they are hurting the other person.
- Don't join in. Someone who bullies often likes the attention and if you don't acknowledge it then it takes some of the fun out it.
- Reach out. Let the person who was bullied know that you care about them by offering a kind word of support.
- Tell an adult. If you are unable to stop the bullying yourself then tell an adult. Adults can help you enforce the rules and make sure something is done.
If everyone stands together against bullying we can make a difference. You can even ask your school to start a bullying prevention program!
