Megan Meier Day : October 17th
This day was created by a few students in Australia several years ago. They choose October 17th (the day Megan passed away) to not only remember Megan in a positive way, but to raise awareness about bullying, cyberbullying, and suicide.
On this day, we remember Megan and the life she had as well as the life she deserved. We remember that bullying and cyberbullying are senseless acts that can have devastating effects and could ultimately ruin lives.
We encourage everyone to honor Megan by performing random acts of kindness and use the tag #ChangeStartsWithMe. You can download more #ChangeStartsWithMe cards and #MeganMeierDay materials below
Megan Meier Day can be observed in many ways, here are examples of some other ways you and your school can show your support:
Wear black & white polka dots
Megan loved black and white polka dots. She would paint her fingernails and toenails with black finger nail polish and use a toothpick to put on white dots, and she would wear the ribbons in her hair and around her wrist.
In Megan's honor, you can wear black and white clothing or accessories to help spread awareness about bullying, cyberbullying, and suicide
Pass out balloons or encouraging notes in your community, reach out to someone in need of a friend, no act of kindness is too small! Click below for our kindness challenge and ideas for random acts of kindness.
You can create a unique way to show your support for Megan Meier Day. Anything you do to create awareness may help another person without you even knowing!
We encourage you and your school to participate in Megan Meier Day every October 17th and share with us the creative ways in which you were able to raise awareness on the issues of bullying and cyberbullying.
You can share photos and stories with the Foundation by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and using #ChangeStartsWithMe and #MeganMeierDay on your social media accounts.
