Green Giant "Raise a Giant" $25 Publix Gift Card Giveaway

“Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by Green Giant® through MyBlogSpark.”

Green Giant knows that it takes a lot more to raise a healthy child than just getting them to eat their vegetables.  Kids these days live in a world that is bigger and scarier than the world we grew up in, and they need help and encouragement to navigate that world with confidence and pride.  Unfortunately one of the hardest things kids have to deal with is bullying.  When a child is bullied by a peer it can turn his/her life into a daily gauntlet of fear and anxiety.  That's why Green Giant is partnering with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center and We Day Minnesota to help parents Raise a Giant and put a stop to bullying in their community.

What does it mean to be a giant? 
Being a giant isn't about being the biggest or the best.  Being a giant means standing up for others.  It means lending a hand to those who are in trouble and speaking up for those who sometimes find it hard to speak for themselves.  Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, "That's not okay" when they see bullying happening.  But asking kids to have the courage to stand up to bullying is a tall order and that's why they need our help.

So, How do you raise a Giant?
 Green Giant is asking parents to write a letter to their kids telling them how special they are and encouraging them to be part of the bullying prevention solution by being a giant.  To get started, parents can visit our community at RaiseAGiant and read the letters others have written.

The letter to my boys.

To my boys,
I am honored that God has given you three amazing young men to me.  The three of you are truly a gift and I treasure you all so very much.  There may be times where you will find yourself in a situation and I pray that I have done a good job in raising you to know what to do in those times.  I pray that you are able to find the courage to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves.  If you see anyone ever being bullied, it is okay for you to say Stop!  Don't let anyone bully you or anyone else.  I pray that also you never find yourself bullying anyone else.   I love you with my whole heart for who you are!
