Shaw Kids Investment Program logo

1 in 3 Canadian youth have been cyber bullied.

Through the Shaw Kids Investment Program (SKIP), we’ve partnered with organizations like the Canadian Red Cross and WITS program to provide bullying prevention resources to over 500 schools in Canada.

And now, we want to partner up with people like you – students who can make the world a better place, starting with their schools. That is why we’ve created the Shaw Kindness Sticks grant program.

50% of Canadian parents say their child has been a victim of bullying.

Being kind is more than being nice, it’s about creating an environment where everybody feels safe. We want to hear your ideas on making kindness stick at your school. If your idea is selected, your school could receive a Kindness Sticks grant of up to $5000* to make it happen. Involve your school. Get creative. Just make sure your project is submitted before April 30, 2018, 5 p.m. MST.

On average, bullying tends to stop within 10 seconds after bystanders intervene.

When submitting your project, just make sure you’ve answered the following questions:

  • How does my project contribute to a positive school environment?
  • What kind of budget does my project need?
  • How can people volunteer and get involved to make my project come to life?
  • Who does my project impact and reach?
  • How is my project creative and unique?

Shaw Respect Camp

As part of our bullying prevention mission, we’ve partnered with the CFL and the Canadian Red Cross to bring Shaw Respect Camp to schools across the country. In 2017, Team Shaw CFL Ambassadors, Manny Arceneaux (BC Lions) and Andrew Harris (Winnipeg Blue Bombers) helped 800 kids learn about respect, compassion and sticking up for each other.
