Support Pink Shirt Day on February 25

PinkShirtDayDid you know that this Wednesday, February 25, is Pink Shirt Day? Started in 2008 in Nova Scotia when two high school students organized a day to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, it has taken off across the country. Toys “R” Us had a special event this past Saturday where they gave out 100 of their “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully” shits at each of their locations. I was sent one shirt for my daughter to wear to school as well as a shirt for myself. I know that bullying and bully prevention is a hot topic at my daughter’s school and the anti-bullying message is so important! “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully” is a great catch-phrase that is easy for kids to remember and understand, and my daughter loves the design of her shirt (though, she’s pretty pro-pink anything). Will you be wearing a pink shirt on Wednesday?

    What a terrific idea and great way to support an important cause. P.S. there is a slight typo in line 3 of your post :)
