The site’s founder, Derek Warburton, believes that bullies act the way that they do because deep down they just want to be loved and accepted.  By embracing our bullies and showing them love, we can show them that there is a better way. And by doing so, we also allow ourselves the opportunity to see beyond the hurtful actions and into the root of the problem.

B+Cool Now also provides a place for people to share their personal stories via text or video. The website is a new community where readers can safely share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences and help others who are going though similar ordeals by offering testimonies of triumph and love.

At the launch, guests were encouraged to make their own videos which will be uploaded to BCoolNow.org.
