Subject: Trick or Treat. Do Something Sweet. 🍭🍬🍭

Body Text:

Kindness Matters.
Do Something Sweet.

October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Across the world people are coming together to raise awareness for bullying prevention. How can you help? Of course you should report acts of bullying when you witness them, but you can have an impact even if you don't see someone being bullied – simply by being kind.

Performing acts of kindness is free and has a positive ripple effect. So before we trick or treat, let's do something sweet! Here are some ideas:

  • Write an anonymous inspiring note to someone in your school or at work that could use some kind words
  • Donate clothes and you no longer wear to a local charity
  • Volunteer at a local food bank, animal shelter, nursing home, etc.
  • Hold the door open for the person behind you
  • Limit teasing. Sometimes the words we think are harmless can actually be hurtful
  • Say hello to a classmate you don't normally talk to
  • Invite someone sitting on the sidelines to join in on your game
  • Choose first the person who is always chosen last
  • Give positive feedback in class when someone is making a presentation

If you see someone being kind, be sure to acknowledge their efforts. Encouragement lets people know their kindness matters. What are some of your ideas for spreading kindness and preventing bullying? Let us know at your next office visit to earn bonus rewards points!

Whether you're a dental office, a learning center, or anything in between, candy buy back programs are a great way to promote healthy habits. When partnered with a donation of the candy to a local or national charitable organization, your efforts also serve to give back to others.

Promotion Manager is the perfect tool to help spread the word, and also serve as a reference calendar all year long. Make your calendar public so that it appears as a landing page on your Hub's microsite, along with a share button so people can help spread the word. Promotions Manager helps you create an in-app message to your members, along with print-ready flyers and posters with more information. And it can all be created in minutes!
