Katherine residents are being urged to stand together in blue next Friday for the inaugural Do It For Dolly Day.
The parents of teenager Amy "Dolly" Everett, who tragically took her life last year, are hoping schools and workplaces across Australia will be awash with the colour to raise awareness about the issue of bullying.
Dolly's Dream was established by Kate and Tick Everett shortly after their 14-year-old took her life following relentless bullying and cyber bullying.
Working tirelessly to stamp it out by educating and empowering the community, Do It For Dolly Day is the latest step in the Everett's mission to end bullying.
With one in four Australian students suffering through persistent school bullying and one in five bullied online, Mr Everett said he hoped a community show of strength would drive home the anti-bullying message.
"By coming together and getting behind the cause, people will encourage their mates to do the same," Mr Everett said.
"Before long, everyone will feel brave enough to speak out against bullying."
Since the devastating day the Everetts lost their daughter, they have thrown their weight against the silent killer.
And in a remote town like Katherine, where there is a lack of youth mental health services, their help is especially needed.
The parents have dreamt big for their daughter and delivered school programs to combat cyber-bullying, bullying workshops, and raised thousands of dollars for their anti-bullying campaign.
"Blue was Dolly's favourite colour and we're hoping that creating a sea of blue on Do It For Dolly Day will remind people to be kind to those around them," Mrs Everett said.
On the back of a three month tour through regional Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, two-time Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain has said he is proud to be a part of the mission.
Mr Curtain said he was inspired to write his hit songSpeak Up by Dolly's words, "Speak even if your voice shakes".

"I wrote the song when I heard the devastating news. I didn't expect it to take off like it did. Now I see kids singing it in schools; some schools even play it before the bell goes," he said.
"The parents of kids who have been bullied come and hug me and thank me so it is making a difference."
On Do It For Dolly Day, May 10, people can support the Everett's vision by "going blue" at school or work and holding fundraising events, which will help provide valuable resources to parents of bullied children.
