Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Over the month of February, and throughout the year, CKNW Kids' Fund's Pink Shirt Day raises awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem.
1 in 5 children will experience a form of bullying growing up.
Now a movement celebrated across the globe, Pink Shirt Day has humble beginnings. Inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia, Pink Shirt Day was stared by 2 Canadian Boys in 2007, who were helping stick up for a new student who had been teased for wearing a pink shirt.
Over 50,000 children have helped to raise funds for Anti Bullying Programs because of Pink Shirt Day!
