Seon to donate proceeds to anti-bullying efforts

Posted on October 2, 2013

COQUITLAM, British Columbia — Seon is kicking off National Bullying Prevention Month by donating a portion of the proceeds of every bus camera system sold between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to anti-bullying education and awareness campaigns such as “The Bully Project.” It is expected that the total donation could amount to upward of $25,000.

“Bullying is a growing epidemic among school-aged children — our school bus cameras capture evidence of it every day,” said Terry Akiyama, president of Seon. “This year we wanted to go one step further to help fund community efforts to stomp out bullying.”

In addition to the corporate donation, Seon has a number of initiatives planned to help celebrate National Bullying Prevention Month in October. To promote the ”NO BULLIES ON MY BUS” campaign, Seon is holding a coloring contest, publishing an anti-bullying blog series, and distributing anti-bullying buttons at the National Association for Pupil Transportation’s Annual Conference and Trade Show, Oct. 18 to 24 in Grand Rapids, Mich.

“Bullying can happen anywhere — in the classroom, on the playground, online, but it often starts on the ride to school,” Akiyama said. “We believe that creating a safe and respectful environment on the school bus can go a long way in preventing bullying. We encourage everyone to participate in our campaign and support this worthy cause.”
