Surrey Board of Trade Supports Pink Shirt Day 2011

The Surrey Board of Trade is supporting Pink Shirt Day

The Surrey Board of Trade has added their name to a long list of supporters for the 4th annual anti-bullying day campaign: Pink Shirt Day 2011. 

Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and over the internet. The Surrey Board of Trade invites businesses to help raise awareness on these issues by wearing pink on Feb. 23, 2011. They encourage all of you to wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere.

Why Pink?

It originates from an incident that happened when two Nova Scotia high school students organized a school protest in sympathy with a new Grade 9 boy. The boy had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The two students handed out pink shirts to all boys in the school, making a non-violent statement that bullying will not be tolerated.

You can purchase your pink shirt at London Drugs stores across Western Canada or online at www.pinkshirtday.ca or by email at info@pinkshirtday.ca.  All proceeds go to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs.  You can visit www.pinkshirtday.ca to see how these funds have benefited children in our community.
