Green Giant: Raise A Giant (Giveaway too)

At Green Giant® we know it takes a lot more to raise a healthy child then just getting them to eat their vegetables. Kids these days live in a world that is bigger and scarier than the world we grew up in, and they need help and encouragement to navigate that world with confidence and pride.
Unfortunately one of the hardest things kids have to deal with is bullying. When a child is bullied by a peer it can turn his or her life into a daily gauntlet of fear and anxiety.
That’s why 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?
We’re 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.
To get started parents can visit our community at and read the letters others have written.

I am very passionate about not raising a bully.  I tell my Cheeks all the time, the most I want for you is to happy and to be kind.  You must always be kind to others.   Words can hurt more than people realize.  Cheeks at only 7 is already empathetic.  He teases but if I hear him I am all over him like white on rice!

I would love to see you write a letter to your child/children and post it at

Or tell me, has your child been bullied? Or are they the bully?  How do you help them cope from both ends of the spectrum?

Now you can enter to win a $25 gift card by sharing how you do Raise A Giant.
