The mobile surveillance equipment provider spent more than $600 on employee T-shirts for a company event held today to promote Canada’s annual campaign as well as its own “No Bullies on my Bus” campaign. In addition, Seon has raised $25,000 for anti-bullying education grants in the U.S.
School bus transportation directors or managers can apply for a grant at www.seon.com/anti-bullying by submitting their plan for anti-bullying education (up to $3,000 per campaign request).
Seon officials said its anti-bullying campaign was inspired by Pink Shirt Day, which the company participated in last year. Since then, it has conducted a coloring contest for children across North America while also publishing anti-bullying education and awareness blogs.
“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,” said Seon President Terry Akiyama.
