MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 18, 2020 /CNW/ – For the fifth year in a row, Morguard Corporation (“Morguard”) (TSX: MRC) is joining forces with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada (“BBBSC”) through our BeYou campaign to help keep kids connected and raise funds to support BBBSC programs. The 2020 campaign officially launches today with an empowering program set entirely online.
“Morguard is committed to be a positive force in our communities with BeYou’s empowering message,” said K. Rai Sahi, Chairman and CEO of Morguard. “We understand the challenges youth face in these unprecedented times and support connection and individuality. The BeYou campaign has the power to drive community engagement while encouraging participants to volunteer and donate.”
Recognizing that the need for young girls and boys to connect is more important than ever as the current environment is having a tremendous impact on youth. This year’s BeYou campaign serves to raise funds in support of BBBSC’s programs and to keep kids connected through mentoring programs.
“We are proud to once again partner with Morguard and the BeYou campaign as we strive to keep kids connected to stable, developmental relationships with a mentor and highlight the need for more volunteers to ignite the potential of youth and empower them to succeed,” said Matthew W. Chater, President and CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada.
For 2020, BeYou’s Social Media Challenge, will be the main event. Through the official @beyougirlca on Instagram and TikTok accounts, participants, including a list of National Social BeYou Ambassadors, will be sharing three things they love about themselves while dancing to the BeYou anthem by Canadian artist, Tara Shannon.
Morguard and BBBSC want to remind everyone of the importance of social media safety while participating in this campaign and for minors to ensure their parents or guardians have approved their participation.
