There’s no better way to stop bullying in its tracks than through simple acts of kindness. With a focus on cyber bullying and Tees that say “Nice needs no filter,” this year’s Pink Shirt Day theme really hit the mark for today’s screen-obsessed kids.
This year, Metropolis at Metrotown is working with 7 Burnaby elementary schools to promote anti-bullying by performing random acts of kindness in support of Pink Shirt Day on February 27th.
Starting at 10 am, on the 27th, students from Maywood Community School, Windsor Elementary, Lochdale Community School, Gilmore Community School, Second Street Community School, Montecito Elementary, and Edmonds Community School will carry out random acts of kindness to surprise, delight and educate shoppers in the mall on Pink Shirt Day.
On Pink Shirt Day, February 27, Metropolis at Metrotown is encouraging everyone to wear a pink shirt to support this anti-bullying movement and perform a random act of kindness.
In addition, a special surprise performance by the students will take place in Grand Court at 11:30 am. Metropolis at Metrotown is once again working with the CKNW Orphans’ Fund to promote the end to cyberbullying and encourage everyone online and in-person to spread kindness.
Post your kindness pledge!
From February 15-27, customers are encouraged to post their pledges on how they can #METMakeNice on the Metropolis at Metrotown Instagram page. For every pledge made, Metropolis at Metrotown will donate $1 to the CKNW Kids’ Fund (up to $1000). By tagging a friend as well, customers have the chance to be entered to win a $500 shopping spree and a $500 gift card to be donated to their favourite local charity.
