Does you or your kids do anything special for Pink Shirt Day? I have to admit that beyond school functions my family wasn’t really doing any celebrating Pink Shirt Day but this year we wanted to change that. This year I wanted to do something for Pink Shirt Day too – I didn’t want to be left out while my kids were in school. So this year I decided to partner up with Metropolis at Metrotown and join in and help out with their Pink Shirt Day festivities this February 28th!
This year Metropolis at Metrotown has joined the Pink Shirt Day movement against bullying, working with the CKNW Orphans’ Fund to promote this initiative to end cyberbullying and encourage everyone online and in-person to spread kindness. Which is something that is right up this social media mavens alley and because of this they have created some fun ways you can help out while entering for a chance to win! February 15-28, customers are encouraged to post their pledges on how they can #METMakeNice on the Metropolis at Metrotown Instagram page.
What is your random act of kindness?
How are you going to spread kindness, whether online or in-person?
For every pledge made, Metropolis at Metrotown will donate $1 to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund (up to $3000). By tagging a friend as well, you’ll have the chance to be entered to win a $500 shopping spree and a $500 gift card to be donated to your favourite local charity. After all a prize is always better when it is shared right?
Of course the fun isn’t going to stop there on Pink Shirt Day (Feb. 28th) Metropolis at Metrotown is going to have lots of fun stuff going on. They are encouraging everyone to wear a pink shirt to support this anti-bullying movement and to perform a random act of kindness somewhere at the mall big or small! Giving you the perfect platform to really make someone’s day, buy a couple coffees for people, hand out balloons to kids, hand out ice creams, or maybe roses to elderly ladies to bring a smile to their faces. There is so much you can do to bring a little joy in someone’s life and I am so excited to be able to be apart of it all this year.
Metropolis has even organized students from 9 Burnaby elementary schools including Windsor, Lochdale, Maywood, and Marlborough to carry out random acts of kindness to surprise and delight shoppers in the mall starting at 10am. In addition, a special performance by the students will take place in Grand Court at 11:30am that you wont want to miss!
So this year you know what I will be doing this year – spreading the love all over the mall hoping to make a difference in a few people’s days.
How will you be celebrating Pink Shirt Day?
