November 16th-20th 2015: Beyond Bossy ran their first social change campaign, Spread Love, in honour of Bullying Awareness Week.
We collected kind words of encouragement and positivism for the week and distributed the notes around the community in schools (which granted us permission), subway stations, coffee shops, office complexes, etc.
It was a HUGE success, with over 80 positive notes sent in! We were overwhelmed with the outcome, it exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much to everyone that participated!
You made someone smile, THAT should give YOU something to smile about!
December 1st-4th 2015: Restarted the Spread Love campaign in honour of Giving Tuesday. Along with the collection and distribution of positive words of encouragement, we matched each note with a $1 donation to one of our favourite organizations, Free The Children. With $50 they give a child an opportunity to receive primary education.
Since our first run achieved almost 80 notes, we set a goal of 100 notes for this second run which would equal $100, giving two children chances at one of the most important things and a basic right: education. The response was exceptional, hitting right past our goal with 110 notes. We did it! For more on our Giving Tuesday contribution, read our blog post here.
