Light Up the World in Purple Event
Carol Todd, mother of Amanda Todd, will be speaking at Stenberg’s Surrey campus and sharing her story and insight into cyber bullying, depression and the creation of the Amanda Todd Legacy society and light Up the World Purple campaign.
For the month of October, we are encouraging the Stenberg community to wear their “Light up the World Purple” bracelet in support of the Amanda Todd Legacy society and show you care about this worldwide initiative. Wear something purple, open the discussion about what mental health is and talk about wellness strategies.
Share on social media and be sure to include the hashtag #StenbergSpeaksOut. Help us bring attention and a voice to this important issue.
Speak Up. Reach Out.
