In 2007, a Grade 9 student in Cambridge, N.S. was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Two Grade 12 students, Travis Price and David Shepherd, rallied their friends to send a message to the bullies. The next day the school's halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts. This ignited the Pink Day campaign. This year Pink Shirt Day will be on February 22. On this day students and staff are asked to wear pink to show that they are taking a stand against bullying. As well, complete acts of kindness to demonstrate the power of positivity and caring-say hello, compliment someone, do something nice for a classmate, leave a kind quote on a locker.
Join the #FindThe KindNB in your school campaign by participating in the #FindTheKindNB Scavenger Hunt and posting your video or pic of your random acts of kindness on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (#FindTheKindNB and #PinkDayNB)
