Raise a Giant - Stand Up Against Bullying & GIVEAWAY

Bullying has become such a problem these days.  Have you talked to your kids about bullying??

Raise A Giant was created to help kids stand up to bullying and help the kids stand up for them selves and what they believe in.

About Raise a Giant

At Green Giant we know getting kids to eat vegetables is just one part of ensuring they grow up healthy. One of the biggest threats to kids' health and happiness 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. Kids need help to navigate the world—a world bigger and scarier than the one we grew up in—with confidence and pride.

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. It's about finding your inner courage to rise above the crowd and do what is right. It means using your voice to stand up for others, which sometimes may mean standing up to your own friends.
Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, "That's not okay."
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 you to write a letter to the kids in your life telling them why they have the courage to stand up to bullying and asking them to do their best to be a giant in their life.

Help Us Spread The Word

1. Write a letter to your kids about standing up to bullying and post it in our letter gallery.
2. Encourage your friends and family to write their own letters and post them at
3. Share the Raise a Giant Video, Infographic, and Tips For Talking To Your Kids About Bullying on your blog, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter accounts.
4. Change your Facebook profile picture to the Raise A Giant icon to help spread the word. With your encouragement we can help all of our kids create a safer, happier world.

We have had some personal experience with a little bit of bullying in our house.  It really affects children in ways that you never want your child to feel.  It is time for us all to be aware and help our kids stand up for themselves and also stand up for them.  I know that my kids don't take it well.  They get very depressed and just aren't their normal happy selves.  Everyone is different and sometimes small kids don't realize what they have done to another child until after it has been done.  It is very hurtful.  I was bullyed as a child and I suffer still now as an adult with self esteem issues because of it.

Let's be aware and help the bullying stop!!

  1. Teach children to stand up for one another, let them know that bullying is not acceptable and teach them how to ask an adult for help. when any of the children were showing signs that they were being bullied, I suggested that they walk home with a few friends or switch lunch tables. If it keeps continuing I suggest they talk to their teacher or principal about it. Sometimes it is hard for other parents to accept that their child is a bully, we had one parent that just was not nice when I approached her. I talked in a calm voice to her until she calmed down, both parents starting watch their son a bit more closely and it worked. I suggested he join Best Buddies at the school and now he is helping students that are having problems with bullies

  3. I would help by supporting the cause and raising the awareness while teach kids to never ignore it and must always tell adults if being bullied.

  4. I teach my kids to stand up for themselves and to report bullying to teachers and parents.

  5. We need to teach children to be kind to each other. If they see or experience bullying, they need to tell the nearest responsible adult.

  6. Bullying is something that i really worry about with my son. He has been bullied by an adult and it was very frustrating we should always be setting good examples to our kids.

  7. i was bulled in school is was awful i would say to stand up to them.

  8. Let them know bullying is not okay. Be there to talk and be supportive. Teach them to stand their ground.

  9. I think it's important for kids to know that the fault lies with the person doing the bullying, not them. They need to know it's important to notify a trusted and responsible adult about bullying incidents.

  10. Best advice I can give a young person about bullying is to not be afraid, and to be sure to tell an adult or their parents if they are being bullied.

  11. I would like to win because I'd put the gift card to good use.
    Also I believe in taking a stand against bullying.
    thank you

  12. I would say don't take anything from anyone.. stand up for youself otherwise you will be taken advantage of the rest of your life.

  13. I want to win to be able to buy nice things for my grandchildren for Christmas. I am always interested in supporting anything related to helping build self esteem in children and making them grow up to be caring individuals.

  14. I would like to win because we desperately need the money. My son was bullied as a child in elementary school and it was awful. He would come home crying because the kids were teasing him. Thankfully he made it through it okay. So glad that there is more info about how to handle those kinds of situations.

  15. I have always been against bullying as most everyone. I have also stood up for those who couldnt stand up for themselves yet.

  16. I would tell them to make sure they tell someone. Don't let it continue. If you are a child and feel comfortable enough, talk to the one bullying and let them know that it's not ok. Thank you!

  17. I know kids have a hard life I know what I went threw when I was in school. I have always told my kids to stand up for yourself but if you don't think you can get help or tell a adult about what is going on

  18. I work in a school and we try to teach the kids to turn the bully triangle upside down by having the victims and the bystanders band together over the bully. We also encourage anonymous notes about anything that is seen to be sent to the counselor.

  19. I think to stop bullying it is very important for the parents to pay attention and teach their children how to respect other kid's differences.
