11 years ago, two boys in Cambridge, Nova Scotia decided to take a stand against bullying, and they unintentionally created the globally-recognized "Pink Shirt Day" to encourage anti-bullying.
Since then, more and more schools, workplaces, and individuals have started to approach bullying head on in an attempt to curb the problem.
Red Cross has been at the front line of anti-bullying, creating and supporting many initiatives among students and communities to spread the messages of tolerance and acceptance. They also hold multiple "Pink Days" across Canada every year, with one coming up in Saskatchewan tomorrow, February 28th.
To show the City of Moose Jaw's support, Mayor Fraser Tolmie, Saskatchewan Red Cross Outreach Coordinator Jan Radwanski, and his son Jacob got together February 9th to sign a proclamation in honour of the day.
Wear Pink tomorrow and show your stand against bullying!
