Starting February 17, guests will be invited to write a promise to help end bullying and post their positive message on the Post-it Pink wall in Southgate Centre, west atrium. For every promise posted on the wall from February 17 to 26, Southgate will donate $0.25 to Kids Help Phone up to $5000 to help end bullying in our community.
It’s the perfect time to start a dialogue with your kids, no matter how young, on the topic of bullying. What kind of promise are you going to make?
On February 24th, hundreds of local students will be in attendance wearing their pink shirts, and writing their own personal pledges against bullying. Southgate Centre is hosting activities in the west atrium near the LRT entrance, between 10 am and 11 am.
Special guest speakers include City Councillor Michael Walters, an officer from the Edmonton Police Service and Cheryl Fix, director of Kids Help Phone.
Remember, you can still post a #PinkShirtPromise to show your commitment to stop bullying. You can use the hashtag on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to spread the word – and you’ll be entered to win an all expense paid trip to Toronto for an ET Canada Experience.
We will be stopping by Southgate Centre to make our #PinkShirtPromise – maybe we’ll see you there?
