Pink Shirt Day
Wednesday, February 26th
''PINK SHIRT DAY" is Wednesday, February 26.
Pink Shirt Day has humble beginnings. lnspired by an act of kindness in small-town NovaScotia, when two students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, took a stand against homophobic bullying after a student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. Since then, the idea has only grown each year, with worldwide support and participation. Last year alone, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations. On February 26,2020, everyone is encouraged to practice kindness and wear pink to symbolize that bullying is not tolerated. Wearing pink on February 26th sends a strong message that society cares.
