Pink Shirt Day 2015


February 25, 2015 is Pink Shirt Day. Based on the initiative of two Nova Scotia students, Pink Shirt Day encourages all of us to stand up to bullies. By collectively refusing to tolerate bullying and developing the skills to prevent it, children and adults can help to make the world a better place for themselves and others. To learn more about Pink Shirt Day visit pinkshirtday.ca.

Celebrate Pink Shirt Day in your classroom of library with Canadian kids' books.
