“Lift each other up.” That’s the theme of this year’s annual anti-bullying Pink Shirt campaign. And really, is there a better way to stop bullying in its tracks than by supporting our peers and spreading kindness? This year, Metropolis at Metrotown is once again working with the CKNW Kids’ Fund to promote the end to cyberbullying and encourage everyone online and in-person to spread kindness.

Metropolis at Metrotown is working with Burnaby elementary schools to promote anti-bullying by performing random acts of kindness in support of Pink Shirt Day on February 26th. In addition, students will perform a special performance in Grand Court at 11:15 am.
Take part in the anti-bullying movement!
On Pink Shirt Day, February 26, wear a pink shirt to support this anti-bullying movement and perform a random act of kindness.
