Pink Shirt Day

You can take a stand against bullying by wearing a pink shirt.

Today (Wednesday) is Pink Shirt Day, a movement across the globe that was inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia.

The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) says the idea for the day started in 2007 when two Grade 12 students saw a Grade 9 students who was wearing a pink shirt being bullied on the first day of school.

ETFO says the two Grade 12 students- David Shepherd and Travis Price bought and distributed 50 pink shirts and encouraged peers to arrive in school wearing pink.

The result was that the school took a stand and began working together to prevent bullying.
