Seon raises over $600 for anti-bullying cause

Posted on February 26, 2014

COQUITLAM, British Columbia — Seon has supported Canadian anti-bullying campaign Pink Shirt Day by purchasing official Pink Shirt Day T-shirts for company employees, raising over $600 for the cause.

Officials said that 100% of the proceeds from the T-shirt purchases go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver.

To highlight the significance of Pink Shirt Day, Seon will also hold a corporate event at SilverCity Coquitlam Theatres on Wednesday. All staff will be wearing the Pink Shirt Day T-shirts to celebrate the company’s own “No Bullies on My Bus” anti-bullying campaign.

Seon’s “No Bullies on My Bus” anti-bullying campaign was inspired by the company’s participation in Pink Shirt Day last year. Since then, Seon has conducted a coloring contest for children across North America, posted anti-bullying education and awareness blog posts and, most recently, raised $25,000 for anti-bullying education grants.

School bus transportation directors or managers can apply for a grant on Seon’s website by submitting their plan for anti-bullying education.

“We have worked hard to put a stop to bullying this past year,” said Terry Akiyama, Seon’s president. “Today, we celebrate Pink Shirt Day, one of the inspirations behind our anti-bullying campaign. We wear the pink shirts with pride and are excited to celebrate this special day in Canada.”
