Every year on February 28th, teachers, parents, and students from all over wear pink shirts as a sign to put a stop to bullying. As Pink Shirt Day’s online platform says, “The Pink Shirt Day campaign recognizes the importance of unity, inclusivity, and diversity of all people.”

Here are 3 fun facts you should know about the national Pink Shirt Day initiative:

1. It happens on the last Wednesay of February each year

Since 2007, the initiative has helped spread anti-bullying awareness across the country and raise funds for anti-bullying activities.

2. It all started in Nova Scotia

After a student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt at a school in Nova Scotia, one of his teachers distributed 50 pink shirts to fellow students in show of support.

3. Social media makes the initiative more important than ever

With 2 in 3 kids having experienced online bullying, the Pink Shirt Day initiative is now more important than ever.
