40 per cent of Canadian workers experience bullying on a weekly basis and 47 per cent of Canadian parents report their children as victims of bullying
Mayfair Shopping Centre is pitching in to end bullying in Canada with an awareness campaign, beginning Wednesday and culminating on Feb. 24, Pink Shirt Day.
The initiative is in support of Shaw Communications’ Pink Shirt Promise, a national movement to end bullying. At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, the shopping centre will unveil a Post-it Pink wall in the centre court. People will be invited to write a promise to help end bullying and post their positive message on the wall.
Mayfair Shopping Centre will donate $1 to the United Way of Greater Victoria (up to $5,000) for every promise posted on the wall from Feb. 17 to 24.
On Feb. 24, Pink Shirt Day, the shopping centre invites everyone to wear a pink shirt in support and take part in a group photo in centre court at 9:30 a.m.
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. The prize includes flights for two to Toronto, two nights hotel accommodation and a $1,500 shopping spree at a participating Ivanhoe Cambridge shopping centre, which includes Mayfair.
“By taking part in Pink Shirt Day and raising awareness through the #PinkShirtPromise campaign, Mayfair Shopping Centre is actively promoting kindness, generosity and acceptance,” said Laura Poland, general manager of the shopping centre. “At Mayfair, we always search for new and better ways to actively support causes that can make a difference in the community.”
