Taking a Stand in Nova Scotia

In Nova Scotia, Canada, David Shepherd, Travis Price and their friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink to support a Grade 9 kid at their school who was being bullied. Even though pink isn’t the most popular color for guys, David and Travis convinced all the boys at their school to wear pink tank tops and show their support.

When the boy who was being bullied came to school the next morning and saw all the guys wearing their pink tank tops in order to support him, it took a huge weight off his shoulders. Not only that, the pink shirt idea worked – the bullies were never heard from again
