Many of you have heard of the #PinkShirtDay anti-bullying campaign. This year Pink Shirt Day will be held on February 24th, where individuals across Canada will rock pink shirts to show their support for taking a stand against bullying.

For those of you who don’t know, the roots of the Pink Shirt campaign stem from two high school boys who decided to wear pink shirts to school one day in support of a grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing pink. The idea struck a chord across the nation, and today the campaign raises money nationwide for great youth causes.

This year, London Drugs is the exclusive retailer of the Pink Day t-shirts that you can see the four of us wearing in these photos. These are the official Pink Day shirts, and the net proceeds of these shirts will go to the CKNW Orphan’s Fund in support of Boys & Girls Clubs in local communities. If you do not have a London Drugs near you, you can order yours online, here.

I love the idea behind pink shirt day, and especially love this year’s message focusing on kindness. I’d love to say that bullying ends with ones teenage years, but I think we are all to familiar with adult bullies that feel the need to belittle others or bring them down. What I have learned in recent years is that a little kindness in the working world goes a long way. Many people are unhappy, over-tired or over-stressed and spreading kindness can make a bullied person feel stronger, and a bully feel less inclined to lash out.

I hope you will all join me on February 24th in wearing a pink shirt and spreading some kindness.

      Aw thanks Laura! Yes! You should totally spread the word and try to start something similar – even just a local thing in one school – it's such a great way to teach the whole school that we stand UP against bullying, we do not tolerate it!
