Pink Shirt Day is Feb. 27 – a reminder to choose kindness every day

Pink Shirt Day 2019.jpgSurrey Schools will be awash in pink on Feb. 27 as students, teachers and staff make a visual commitment to champion kindness and take a stand against bullying.

This year's theme, "Be Kind" is also a reminder to think before posting on social media or online -- an effort to curb cyberbullying.

The Pink Shirt Day concept was inspired by a pair of Nova Scotia high school students who, when a fellow student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, decided to take a stand and went out and bought pink shirts to give to fellow students as a show of solidarity. The movement has spread across Canada over the years and now, on the last Wednesday in February, schools, businesses and individuals take the day to don their rosiest garb and display their pledge to tolerance and compassion.

2019 marks the 10th year of Pink Shirt Day.

While we wear pink on Feb. 27, it's a message to remember and practice all year long: kindness matters and bullying has no place in our schools, homes, workplaces or online.
