Pink Shirt Day 2011


Wednesday, February 23rd is the official “Pink Shirt Day”, one of the largest Anti-bullying movement days currently being done. If you are a regular reader to my website, then you know the “Pink Shirt Story” already, which is one of the best examples of bystanders taking action to stop bullying.

Don’t know the story? Here’s some links on this site to catch up on what these boys did to solve a bullying problem at their school:

Little did these teenagers know at the time that they would start an international anti-bullying movement. So, on February 23rd, people are being asked to wear pink to remind us and others that bystanders can make a difference and take a stand against bullying. Join the “Pink Shirt Day” movement and wear something pink.

  1. It’s a bit sad that it took a long series of school shootings and the suicide of bullying victims to kick start an anti-bullying movement.

    The obvious danger is that other angry people will realize that the only thing the public reacts to is terrorism.
