Pink Shirt Day happens every year in February. Inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia, Pink Shirt Day raises awareness of bullying in our schools.
David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. They distributed pink t-shirts to the students in their school and the bullies never bothered the Grade 9 boy again.
On February 24, we wear pink to snow our school is a bully-free zone!
