Bullying Stops Here!
Show your support for a great cause:
February 24th, 2021 is Pink Shirt Day.
This is a day to wear pink to symbolize a stand against bullying!
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all and shown the importance of helping one another and advocating for those who need it. Together, with Gray Monk Estate Winery, we can “lift each other up”.
Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Over the month of February, and throughout the year, CKNW Kids’ Fund‘s Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem.
The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student, Chuck McNeill, was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school. In Nova Scotia, then Premier Rodney MacDonald proclaimed the second Thursday of September “Stand Up Against Bullying Day” in recognition of these events.
Since then, Anti Bullying Day is celebrated on various dates around the world and in Canada, the last Wednesday of February is now National Anti-Bullying Day. It was instituted to help spread awareness of bullying and the need for further prevention.
