In Canada, February 27 is Anti-Bullying Day.
Or pink shirt day.
Six years ago, a male grade 9 student in Nova Scotia was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. A couple of boys chose to stand up for this young man, and bought and handed out 50 pink shirts for students to wear the next day.
Now, many schools are a sea of pink on February 27.
We all wear our pink t-shirts. (One little guy in my class even spray dyed his hair pink!)
I figure that kindness is contagious, and is good bullying prevention. So, we like to promote kindness. Read about our video project here.
This week was our premiere. Kindness is contagious.
