Campaign targets cellphone bullies
Vodafone receives 100 calls a month about bullying from children, parents and other adults, reports Stuff
"Netsafe aims to support children who are being bullied through education and the launch of freephone number, 0508 NETSAFE (0508 638 7233). Harassment can also be reported directly to Vodafone through its 777 customer service number.
Posters and brochures were distributed to all schools last week as well as to libraries and cinemas".
