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.
