The important Pink Shirt Day is coming up in just a few weeks, don’t forget to wear your pink!
Pink Shirt Day is a day when everyone is encouraged to wear something pink to stand up to bullying in our schools, workplaces, communities and online.
The original Pink Shirt Day was organized by two teenage boys in Nova Scotia who distributed 50 pink shirts after a fellow male student was bullied for wearing pink on the first day of school. Since then, Pink Shirt Day has become an anti-bullying movement recognized and celebrated worldwide.
This year’s Pink Shirt Day takes place on Wednesday, February 24. So wear a pink shirt or pin and show your community you’re standing up to bullying!
Proceeds from official Pink Shirt Day t-shirts, pins and buttons, as well as all donations, go directly to anti-bullying initiatives that directly help youth in need.
