Pink Shirt Day Wednesday, Feb 22

February 21, 2017 by Jennifer Burgess

Pink Shirt Day is an international day to stop bullying (though it originated right here in Canada!) "The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student Jadrien Cota was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school." (Wikipedia)

On Pink Shirt Day, we are all encouraged to wear a pink shirt to show our stance against bullying. The theme this year: "Through our campaign this year, we encourage everyone to “Make Nice”. We all have the capacity to be kind and compassionate, and our slogan acts as a friendly reminder that no matter what our differences, being nice is always a choice worth making."

Why not wear a pink shirt tomorrow and show your support. If you happen to be at Trico Centre, we invite you to put your #pinkshirtpromise - your promise to stop bullying, be kind and compassionate to others (and yourself) - on our roving bulletin board.
