Did you know that today is International Day of Pink?

The International #DayofPink is an international anti-bullying event held annually during the second week of April. The event started when students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw another student, who was wearing a pink shirt, being bullied and decided to show support for the #student by getting everyone at their #school to wear pink the following day.

The initiative inspired youth at Jer’s Vision – which works to stop bullying, discrimination and homophobia in schools and communities in #Canada, and abroad, who founded The International Day of Pink, an effort to support their peers internationally with resources and ways to make their schools safer.

$2.1 million have been raised for anti-bullying initiatives in British Columbia to support local anti-bullying programs that teach empathy, compassion, and kindness to help youth in need.
