The Scary Guy recently appeared on Mornings with Jeff and Floyd, aired in Nova Scotia. He shared with them his philosophies, real-life anecdotes, and his mission. We can’t get enough of his story of how he came to be, and we always love the reaction he gets when he tells people that “The Scary Guy” is his legal name!
Inspired by The Scary Guy, people will soon be able to apply to become a part of Team Scary, whose job will be to ensure every troubled person in the community receives some form of help, love and encouragement when facing a problem. After a certain number of posts, team members may be “promoted” to higher rank and rewarded with prizes.
The Scary Guy will also be reachable through the HIBhub website, where people can ask him for help directly (and privately) via email.
This feature will give people the chance to be a direct part of bullying prevention!

If a kid pushes another kid down to the ground every day, he may be reported to the principal. The principal may scold him, give him detention, or even suspension. But what are the odds that bully will come back and do the same thing again? … and again?
Stopping an incident before it happens is tricky but it’s the core goal of the HIBhub community. Students have to be conditioned to think in a different way, a formula which may be the most challenging thing in the world to obtain. However, we as an anti-bullying, anti-violence, and anti-hate community will work tirelessly until we find that formula.
Our friend, The Scary Guy, has been the most successful player in this conquest, in our humble opinion. His distinct appearance sparks lots of interest, and the kids love him. His words resonate with both students and teachers, and thankfully so. The information he shares in his teaching is invaluable, full of strong messages of love and compassion. He is a shining leader against bullying, violence and hate.
Our goal for HIBhub, like the efforts of the Scary Guy, is to be an effective medium for child and teen enrichment. To stop bullying before it ever starts.
