At Green Giant we know getting kids to eat vegetables is just one part of ensuring they grow up healthy. One of the biggest threats to kids’ health and happiness is “Bullying”. When a child is bullied by a peer it can turn his or her life into a daily gauntlet of fear and anxiety. Kids need help to navigate the world—a world bigger and scarier than the one we grew up in—with confidence and pride. That’s why Green Giant is partnering with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center to help parents “Raise A Giant” and put a stop to bullying in their community.
What Does it Mean To Be A Giant?
Being a giant isn’t about being the biggest or the best. It’s about finding your inner courage to rise above the crowd and do what is right. It means using your voice to stand up for others, which sometimes may mean standing up to your own friends. Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, “That’s not okay.” But asking kids to have the courage to stand up to bullying is a tall order and that’s why they need our help.
How Do You Raise A Giant?
We’re asking you to write a letter to the kids in your life telling them why they have the courage to stand up to bullying and asking them to do their best to be a giant in their life.
