Pink Shirt Day
CKNW Orphans’ Fund Pink Shirt Day 2014 Anti-Bullying Campaign!
On Wednesday, February 26th, be sure to wear your Pink Shirt Day t-shirt and make some noise against bullying! This special day takes place in schools, workplaces, and neighbourhoods across the nation, and features individuals like you bringing awareness to the cause. The goal of the Pink Shirt Day campaign is to raise $300,000 to fund local anti-bullying programs and you can be a part of this amazing campaign!
History of Pink Shirt Day
CKNW Orphans’ Fund was inspired by the story of students in Nova Scotia who decided to take action after witnessing another student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. Each year on this last Wednesday in February, hundreds of thousands use Pink Shirt Day to commit to “make some noise against bullying”. To date, over $650,000 has been raised for anti-bullying programs in your community as a result of the campaign organized by CKNW Orphans’ Fund.
