About Be BOLD

The Be BOLD Campaign is a photographic campaign created by Photographer Susan Goble and Anti-Bullying Activist Joanne Greenwood in April 2013. What started out as an anti-bullying campaign, Be BOLD rapidly became a campaign of self-expression and bravery. Photos feature individuals from all walks of life holding uniquely framed chalkboards with their own chosen word, and turn it into an anagram using positive and empowering words that better define the individual holding the chalkboard.

In a very short amount of time, the Be BOLD Campaign has reached places around the globe. It started with one photo and since displaying that photo on social media sites, Be Bold has gained interest from people from all walks of life, from everyday people, to local celebrities, politicians, musicians, athletes and artists! The photos have appeared on high profiled social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and the response Be BOLD has gotten has been nothing short of amazing. As Be BOLD continues to grow, we hope to empower more people to simply… Be BOLD in their everyday lives. In addition, the Be Bold Campaign and co-founders are committed to giving back to the community by donating partial proceeds to various charities and organizations throughout North America and eventually around the world.
