Standing up to bullying at Joey’s Seafood Restaurants


Joey's is selling Pink "Be Brave" buttons in support of Anti-Bullying.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT

On the last Wednesday in February (this year, February 26th), thousands of Canadian students and professionals will wear pink in a show of support of anti-bullying campaigns.

Joey’s Seafood Restaurants is raising this awareness all month long with the sale of Pink bullying awareness buttons in support of PREVNet.

“No one EVER deserves to be bullied,” said Joey’s Vice President, Max Gagnon. “By being brave and strong together, we can stand up to bullies and stop the harassment of many vulnerable children.”

The ½ inch circular pink buttons say “Be Brave. Be Strong.” and can be picked up at any Joey’s Seafood Restaurant in Canada – for a donation - like how Poppies are sold. $2 is suggested but any amount will be greatly appreciated. All proceeds from donations collected, will be directed to PREVNet, Canada’s authority on bullying prevention.

Joey’s kids coins go on sale February 3, 2020 and are available in the restaurant while supplies last. For additional information, visit https://joeys.ca/feature.
