Everyone has been bullied at some point. Maybe it was in Grade 4. Or, maybe it was yesterday at work.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research says 40% of Canadian workers experience bullying on a weekly basis.
In Canada, 47% of parents report having a child who’s been bullied.
In support of Shaw Communications’ #PinkShirtPromise campaign, Post-It Brand and CrossIron Mills are working to end bullying in Canada.
Starting today and running through Feb. 24, shoppers can write a promise to help end bullying and then post their positive message on the Post-it Pink wall at CrossIron Mills between Forever 21 and La Senza.
For every promise posted on the wall, CrossIron Mills will donate to YouthLink and the Boys and Girls Club of Airdrie and Calgary.
On February 24, Pink Shirt Day, shoppers and mall employees can purchase a pink shirt for $10.
And everyone is encouraged to wear their pink shirt that day to raise awareness about bullying – and what we can do to stop it.
