Pink Shirt Day – Wednesday, Feb. 24

The Health Promotion Team

The Mental and Social Wellness Working Group of the MARPAC Health and Wellness Strategy is encouraging Defence Team members to dress with a difference, and proudly wear pink.

Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when two students from Nova Scotia took a stand against bullying. Since then, Pink Shirt Day has evolved into an annual campaign that brings awareness and raises funds to support anti-bullying, while promoting kindness, respect, and civility. It has expanded beyond schools to include workplaces and professional environments, and is supported all over the world.

Official Pink Shirt Day t-shirts can be purchased at London Drugs, or you can wear a pink shirt you already have, or one from last year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all, and has shown the importance of helping one another and advocating for those who need it. It’s been a tough year and everyone is dealing with a lot, so being kind and doing something nice for one another can mean even more these days.
