PINK SHIRT DAY

Pink Shirt Day is a global anti-bullying movement that was inspired by an act of kindness in a small-town of Nova Scotia.

David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. The teens took a stand against bullying when they protested against the harassment of a new Grade 9 student by distributing pink T-shirts to all the boys in their school.

‘I learned that two people can come up with an idea, run with it, and it can do wonders,’ says Mr. Price, 17, who organized the pink protest. ‘Finally, someone stood up for a weaker kid.’

Mr. Shepherd and some others headed off to a discount store and bought 50 pink tank tops. They sent out a message to schoolmates that night, and the next morning they hauled the shirts to school in a plastic bag. As they stood in the foyer handing out the shirts, the bullied boy walked in. His face spoke volumes.

‘It looked like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders,’ Mr. Price recalled. The bullies were never heard from again.”

Pink Shirt Day February 24, 2021

This year we have teamed up with not one, but TWO Discovery Co-operative Ltd. departments to celebrate Pink Shirt Day! 

In January, we hosted an anti-bullying, t-shirt design competition. We received several great entries but we felt that 9 year old Ryliegh’s drawing best suited the 2021 theme of “Lift Each Other Up”. Thanks to the ladies at FF2 Get Dressed, Ryleigh’s design has been printed on pink t-shirts and is now available to purchase!  

Pink Shirt Day would not be complete without something sweet so thanks to Discovery Co-operative Ltd. Bakery, pink t-shirt sugar cookies are now available to pre-order!
