Stand Up Against Bullying on Pink Shirt Day 2014

Jan 12, 2014

Bullying can take place anywhere - at school, home and online - and it's important to speak up about it. Stand against bullying without saying a word by slipping into a pink T. Pink Shirt Day takes place Wednesday, February 26th 2014 - what color will you be wearing?

What's Pink Shirt Day About?

Pink Shirt Day was started by two high school students in Nova Scotia, Canada who witnessed a new classmate getting bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. A lightbulb went off for David Shepard and Travis Price, and they ran to their local dollar store to buy up all the pink shirts they could find and distributed them to everyone at their school, showing the bullies that bullying wasn't okay.

Pink Shirt Day is now celebrated every year as a way for students, whole classrooms, offices and whoever wants to join as a way to speak up about bullying. It takes place every February, and all you need to do to participate is put on some pink!
