Pink Shirt Day has become a well known event around the world that highlights bullying in schools. The Pink Shirt Day Event, held this year on February 27, 2019, shows the world that people do care about and will continue to stop bullying in our schools, workplaces and neighbourhoods. The Pink Shirt Day give is a great way to start giving at school with your friends and their parents. Their focus this year is on cyber bullying. Bullying is NEVER ok. That is the strong message being spread on pink shirt day. Online bullying is really not okay, so take a stand.
Pink Shirt Day was originally inspired by an act of kindness in a small Canadian town in Nova Scotia. To read more about the actual incident that started the pink shirt movement, check it out here! What an amazing story it is! You will love it. As a fellow Canadian I am proud to see that Pink Shirt Day started in our country and continues to spread around the globe. Like our program at 365give, it goes to show how one simple gesture, one small act of kindness can make the world a better place. The ripple effect of giving just keeps on moving forward! We need more giving acts like this in the world. The gift of giving doesn’t take a lot and makes a world of difference as we can see from the Pink Shirt Day campaign!
But Pink Shirt Day is just one incredible way of making our world a better place and stop bullying in our schools. Participate in The Pink Shirt Day Event on February 27th but don’t stop there! There are many other ways to give back throughout the year that support anti-bullying behaviours. Add these gives to your weekly giving list to stop bullying!
There are so many ways to give at school that promotes a safe environment free from bullying! Bullying is just not acceptable so lets start creating more daily gives that promote a bully free culture starting with our schools. The fact that it still happens in this day and age is hard to believe, but it does. if we create bully free environments at a young age, workplaces, public spaces and community centers will also adopt this culture. Bullying needs to stop and it needs to stop NOW. I have told my children that I never want to get a call that they are bullying another child or that my children are being bullied. Lets stop it today! Make your daily give by pledging to stop bullying in your community. Take your pledge against bullying here!
