Who are we raising money for?

2014 Pink Shirt Day T-shirtOur 7th annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day is fast approaching! To date, CKNW Orphans’ Fund has raised more than $650,000 for anti-bullying programs in British Columbia. The goal this year is to raise $300,000! But where will this money go?

The proceeds of Pink Shirt Day, including donations and proceeds from official t-shirt and button sales, will benefit the following 10 organizations who have been approved for funding anti-bullying programs in BC.

Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC

We are proud to support the anti-bullying programs they host at their 12 neighbourhood-based clubs in the Lower Mainland. Each of the 1,000 children who come to BGC each day is supported in developing the resiliency against bullying in all its forms, and in developing the skills to be active participants in bullying prevention.

Big Sisters of BC Lower mainland

We are happy to support their “Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds” program. The program focuses on physical activity, balanced eating, and self-esteem, and its goal is to positively shape the lives of young women by helping them build a positive self-image.

Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver

We are proud to support their in-school mentoring program, where volunteers spend one hour a week playing games and sports, doing arts and crafts, baking, talking, or hanging out on the playground with a boy or girl at a nearby elementary school.

The Canadian Red Cross of BC

We are thrilled to support their RespectED violence and abuse prevention program, which addresses violence against children, relationship violence, bullying and harassment, and helps organizations create safe environments for children in their care.

The Crisis Centre

We are proud to support their YouthInBC.com building capacity program, an on-line crisis chat service, where individuals can chat 1-on-1 with a trained volunteer from the Crisis Centre.

Kids Help Phone

We are pleased to provide funds for their anonymous and confidential professional counselling services for children and youth at risk all across Canada.

Kidsafe Project Society

We are proud to support their Young Leaders program, which teaches youth, who are navigating adolescence in uncertain circumstances, pre-employment skills. It also provides first aid, babysitting and Food Safe courses, resume writing and interviewing skills, sports and out-trips, and involvement in community service.

Leave out Violence Society (LOVE BC)

We are pleased to support the anti-bullying work they do through leadership and violence prevention committees. They hold workshops that address the root causes of bullying and actively work to support youth in building respect for each other.

Vancouver Opera Association

We are supporting their newly-commissioned production of “Stickboy”, a chamber opera for young audiences about the bullying cycle. Spoken word poet Shane Koyczan is penning the libretto for the opera based on his own experiences with bullying. It will open at the Vancouver Playhouse in October 2014.

YMCA of Greater Vancouver

We are proud to support their alternative suspension program. This program is an opportunity for suspended students to turn their time away from school into a positive experience. Students have time to get caught up on school work, as well as time to attend workshops to get to the root of the students’ difficulties.

We hope you’ll help us raise funds for these very worthwhile organizations. Let’s make #pinkshirtday 2014 the biggest and best yet!

    Hi Meredith – Pink Shirt Day is always the last Wednesday of February…so this year it is on Wednesday, February 26th. The date comes up at the 21 second mark of the video but looks like we need to do better to highlight – thanks!
