Hopefully, if you’ve been to this site before you read one of my favorite bullying solution stories, The Pink Shirt Gang story. It’s a great positive message true story of a solution some bystander boys came up with to deal with the bullying of a boy who wore a pink shirt on the first day of school. The solution they came up with and the message is one that should be shared and promoted.
This story has become such an inspiration to the anti-bullying movement that there is now a Pink Shirt Day to help support the anti-bullying message. This year, the 3rd Annual Pink Shirt Day is April 14th, 2010. School children and adults can wear pink this day to promote this event and recall the brave statement that the Pink Shirt Gang made a few years ago.
Stand up and be counted as a person in support of students bystander solutions to the bullying problem. The Pink Shirt story is such a good and positive message that kids can be solution providers to these issues and help their fellow classmates.
In honor of this day, click here to watch the NBC News story from a few years ago.
