Pink Shirt Day to end Bullying is coming up on February 24th. Remember last week when I told you about Shaw’s #PinkShirtPromise campaign?
#PinkShirtPromise in the Calgary Area
Well tomorrow, February 17th, there will be a #PinkShirtPromise event at CrossIron Mills Mall in Airdrie. Guests will be invited to write a promise to help end bullying and post their positive message on the Post-it Pink wall in between Forever 21 and La Senza. For every promise posted on the wall from February 17th to 24th, CrossIron Mills will donate to YouthLink and the Boys and Girls Club of Airdrie and Calgary to help end bullying in our community.
So head north, do a bit of shopping and leave your #PinkShirtPromise and give while doing it.
Here’s a promise I made last week:
Education about what bullying is (and isn’t) and helping kids who suffer from bullying and are bullies themselves is such important work.
Bullying, whether online, at school, or at work, affects people of all age groups, backgrounds, and genders. According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, 40% of Canadian workers experience bullying on a weekly basis and 47% of Canadian parents report having a child victim of bullying.
Raise Awareness and Win
Share your #PinkShirtPromise on social media and raise awareness. Throughout the campaign, each promise made using the #PinkShirtPromise hashtag on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook will be eligible for a chance to win an ET Canada Experience, which includes flights for two to Toronto and two nights hotel accommodation, and a $1,500 dollar shopping spree at CrossIron Mills.
Share your #PinkShirtPromise and wear your pink shirt on April 24th and let’s make a real difference in the lives of children!
Don’t have a pink shirt? Buy one at London Drugs, online or on Feb 24th at CrossIron Mills.
