Green Giant Raise a GiantBullying. It’s the issue of our day, and it’s seemingly everywhere. To use an analogy, bullying is to 2013 what anorexia was to 1983.

It seems no child is exempt: most kids can probably name at least one instance of being bullied. Heck, even Kate Middleton was bullied as a child! Whether it’s at school, during sports practice, or even on Facebook, bullying is all too common.

Green Giant knows that it takes a lot more to raise a healthy child than just getting them to eat their vegetables. They need help and encouragement to navigate the world with confidence and pride. 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 up 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.
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.


  • Parents can visit our community at RaiseAGiant and read the letters others have written.
  • Write a letter to your kids about standing up to bullying and post it at
  • Encourage your community to write their own letters and post them at
  • Change your Facebook profile picture to the Raise A Giant icon to show your support.

With your encouragement we can help all of our kids create a safer, happier world!
How about you? Has bullying impacted you or your kids recently? How did you deal with it?

  1. A teacher I highly respect told me once he thinks bullying is totally overrated.

  2. I dunno — I’ve heard some pretty bad tales of it. Not being in the trenches anymore, it’s hard to say. I also think that there are fairly frequent incidents of bullying by teachers …

  3. I honestly don’t know anyone that wasn’t bullied. I’m not saying that makes it alright, of course. But surely those of us who were, can help those who are bullying or being bullied now. But unfortunately, you’re right about teachers often being the bullies, or backing up the bullies.

  4. I could tell you stories of a bully in my class in school that would make your hair stand on end. Some day, in a very private place, I’d like to tell you how I put him in his place, when I was the target of his bullying.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
