Project My Neighborhood
Project My Neighborhood (PMN) is a local non-profit that raises funds and awareness for bullying prevention. Their mission is to create a do-good atmosphere that can be entertaining and educational. PMN hosts Blaster Battles events and supplies rental equipment for private events throughout the Midwest. They collaborate with corporations and organizations, such as Pacer National Bullying Prevention Center and Blaine National Sports Center, to expand bullying prevention initiatives.
PMN uses toy Nerf blasters with foam darts along with paintball bunkers (inflatables) in a designated family-friendly environment for a series of games – like tag, capture the flag, and their “Blaster Battles” – that promote outreach, inclusion, team building, health, and wellness. During these events, they typically discuss five topics of bullying, which are related to the games played and life beyond the games: 1) protect yourself, 2) you are not alone, 3) overcoming adversity, 4) choices we make, and 5) the slippery slope of teasing vs. bullying. Proceeds from our events allow PMN to host more Blaster Battles and support bullying prevention programs.
