seaway2It’s cool to be kind

girlsCORNWALL, Ontario ~ That’s the message from the Boys & Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG as the non-profit readies for ‘Pink Shirt Day’ on Wednesday (Feb. 24) girl2– a national anti-bullying campaign.

In addition to the annual fashion statement, BGC launched a new ‘Kindness Contest’, encouraging children and youth ages six to 18 to send a PSA video or vlog (video blog) about what local residents can do to make Cornwall/SDG a bully-free region.

dreamstimeEntrants have an opportunity to win one of six prizes, including an Apple iPad mini or an Xbox One console.

“This year, we decided to take a different direction with the campaign and focus on positive behaviour since the antidote of bullying is kindness,” said Jacquie Richards, the club’s executive director.

Kindness Contest submissions should be one to three minutes long.

The entry deadline is Wednesday (Feb. 17).

  1. When I started my most recent job, I had a choice to make a monthly donation to the Boys & Girls club of Canada, I selected the monthly amount and ticked the “YES” box but it was not applied, if and when I return to work I will be following up as to why.
