Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Over the month of February, and throughout the year, Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem. Now a movement celebrated across the globe, Pink Shirt Day has humble beginnings inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia. Since then, the idea has only grown each year, with worldwide support and participation. Last year alone, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations.
On February 26, 2020, we encourage everyone to practice kindness and wear pink to symbolize that you do not tolerate bullying.
