Thanks to technology, we’re more connected than ever. We can chat with our friends at all hours, order rides and food to our door and send pictures and videos instantly. But there is a negative side to always being connected—more than one million kids will be cyberbullied this month.

Because of this, TELUS and a few of our favourite Much Creators have teamed up to combat and put an end to cyberbullying.

As Internet personalities, Alayna Fender, Michael Rizzi and Dan Rodo of The Danocracy are no strangers to negative and hurtful comments. In these videos, they each talk about their own experiences with bullying, offering advice and solutions to unkind comments made online.

“How I get through is to not pay attention to those words,” Dan says in his video, “I refuse to give them power.”

“None of us are truly alone, so let’s share our experiences,” Michael says.

“Tell someone what’s happening,” Alayna says. “I know that it helps because it helped me.”

Together with TELUS, these three Creators are encouraging—and empowering—youth everywhere to stand up and put an end to cyber bullying by taking the every TELUS Wise Digital Pledge. For every TELUS Wise Digital Pledge taken, TELUS will give $1 to support #EndBullying programs across Canada.

Check out their videos above, take the pledge yourself here, and tune into WE Day, airing Monday, November 26 at 8e/5p.
