Pink Shirts in Canada

PINK SHIRT DAY IN CANADA TODAY

(one of the many reasons I love Canadians)

Tens of thousands of people across Canada will don pink shirts today (the last Wednesday of February)  to show their support in the fight against bullying. Go Jo


It started six years ago at a Nova Scotia school after several students noticed another boy being bullied for wearing a pink t-shirt. The next day they came to school and distributed pink t-shirts for all of the male students to wear.




It’s all a part of Pink Shirt Day, an event being celebrated all across the country to celebrate that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere.
 
To show their support the Vancouver Police Department will be trading their uniforms for anti-bullying pink t-shirts.

You can show your support on Facebook for this successful "grass roots" program.

I AM SO PROUD TO BE A CANADIAN TODAY.
