Morguard is all about putting the community first as we want to be a part of shaping the next generation. That’s why we are proud to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters to present BeYou Girl, a campaign to help young girls across Canada to increase self-esteem. We encourage girls aged 9-16 to be unique and celebrate their diversity, self-worth, and growth. Over 50% of girls have said they wish they were someone else. We aim to change that.
Confidence comes from a lot of places, and we want to equip girls with the tools to find strength in themselves and each other. Through free events at Morguard owned and managed malls and communities across the country, girls can find fun ways to express themselves and learn that it is ok to simply “Be you!”. One of those events recently took place at many Morguard apartment communities. We call it our “Art on Sneakers” event.
Girls were encouraged to decorate a pair of white sneakers and let their inner artistic selves pour out! Through colourful designs, these young women revealed their feelings, desires, and fantasies in a fun, wearable way. Every time they wear these sneakers, they will be spreading a message of positivity and love! Through a vote on the BeYou website, one sneaker artist was awarded a $500 gift certificate to any Morguard location.
We are always looking for ways to empower and improve our community. If you want to be part of a movement of empowerment and positivity, explore our Morguard communities across Canada and The United States. Or consider joining our team and be a part of something big!
