SYNERGY TAKES A STAND AGAINST BULLYING YEAR ROUND!
Bullying is a problem that is very important to our youth. Each year the YELL Youth Council sells hand-made buttons to raise money in our community to combat bullying. Buttons are sold at local organizations and businesses throughout the month of February but are available for purchase from Synergy all year round. The recommended donation for a button is $2 for children/youth and $5 for adults. YELL also visits local schools to speak to the students about bullying and how to prevent it.
Funds raised from the efforts of the campaign go directly into a relevant cause. Each year, YELL members thoughtfully choose a charity to contribute funds collected from their efforts. Charities chosen must be accessible to local children and youth and must help prevent bullying or support those suffering from the effects of bullying.
For 2019, the Calgary and Area Child Advocacy Centre was selected to receive 50% of the funds raised with the Pretty in Pink Project.
