Please remember to wear your PINK tomorrow in support of Anti Bullying!
Where it all started:
Two senior high school students organized a protest in support of a Grade 9 student at their Nova Scotia high school in 2007.
The boy was targeted by students and bullied because he was wearing a pink polo shirt to school. The two young men heard about the attack and bought 75 pink tank tops at a thrift store and told classmates they were going to hand them out the next day. Word of the plan spread quickly and hundreds of fellow students showed up wearing pink the next day, some head to toe.
That action was the first Pink Shirt Day. Today, millions around the world participate each year in pink days to stand up and speak out against bullying in schools, workplaces and communities.
