In my January 17, 2008 post, I discussed bullying in schools, how pervasive it is and some of the damaging effects it can have on the victims. You can read it by clicking here.
Today, I want to introduce you to Pink Shirt Day 2009. In an effort to help raise the awareness of bullying in our schools, workplaces, homes and over the Internet, Christy Clark is promoting the idea of Pink Shirt Day on her radio show and through their website. It will be held on February 25th and you can learn more about the day, and how to take part in the event by clicking here.
The cool thing about Pink Shirt Day is it was started by two high school students who had an idea on how to stop some bullies from bullying a ninth grade student. David Sheppard and Travis Price have shown us once again how two people with a good idea can make a big difference.
I encourage you to read about it and see if you want to do something in your school or workplace on February 25th.
I'd be curious to know what you decide. If you have any ideas about how to participate, please feel free to share them.
I look forward to your comments.
