Do the Right Thing: Logan Keiser made videos to speak out against bullying
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC is celebrating the latest winner of this semester’s “do the right thing” award. Meet Logan Keiser a 6th grader from East Irondequoit Middle School.
A family acquaintance nominated Logan for helping others and speaking out against bullying. Logan is on the autism spectrum and is always thinking of ways to be kind to others. During the pandemic, Logan wrote nice messages in chalk throughout the neighborhood to help inspire others. He also helped create 500 sensory bags to give away to other kids in his community.
Unfortunately, Logan has also been a victim of bullying. Instead of showing anger for the way he was treated, he helped others impacted by bullying by teaching kindness and creating anti-bullying videos. His videos let people who are bullied know that they’re not alone. They emphasize how serious the impacts of bullying can be and challenge everyone to stop bullying and think of the feelings of others instead.
The videos are creative, honest, and informative. Some of Logan’s videos even display his sense of humor! Follow Logan’s mother’s TikTok account @ awesome5mom if you’d like to see his videos, and help Logan spread the message to #stopbullying!
