    My son has been the target of bullying for two years running now. His school has tried to keep on top of things and manage it but its tough. However, the same class my son is in, the grade 8 class, is going on a mission trip this spring to a Native reserve on Vancouver Island. Now my kids ae in a private school so they wear a uniform. What they are doing is anyone who wants to wear pink can bring in a toonie or a loonie and then they don’t have to wear their uniform, rather they can wear something pink (the school is having a red option for the boys). The proceeds from this will go towards the Mission Trip. I will try and get some pictures and post them up.

  4. I have developed a program called the ‘No Bully Zone’ show that is filled with magic and fun! It’s a great way to get the message across to students about the cause and effects of bullying. I demonstrate how kids can work together and help each other to eliminate bullying in their school and in their lives – by engaging them in interactive magic tricks and games!

    I have been performing this show for over 2 years and it’s fairly booked for February this year – however we do have some spots left and I offering 50% off the fee to the next 5 shows we can fit into our schedule to get this message out! Thank you Christy for all the work you have been doing!

    Get shows like “House” and “Hells Kitchen” which glorify bullying off the television.

  6. Lisa Prichett says:

    I work in a Government office and the majority of the office have purchased pink shirts or will be weraring pink shirts in support of Pink Shirt Day. We are also planning a pink food themed potluck and our directors are coming in the afternoon for a meeting so we have sent them an email asking for their participation as well in suporting our efforts. It’s not hugely ‘creative’ so to speak, but I think as a Government Ministry office who serves the public on a daily basis, we are making a positive statement and trying to help spread the word.

  7. Bullying Prevention STARTS Here!
    Research tells us that stopping bullying starts when children are preschoolers. Although there have been few rigorous studies into the impact of programs aimed at curbing aggression in infants, toddlers and preschoolers, available evidence suggests that intervention at this age can have a greater impact than at later ages. (Early Learning Prevents Youth Violence, Tremblay, Gervais & Petitclerc, 2008)
    Westcoast Child Care Resource Centre in Vancouver has created a unique bullying prevention program for preschool-aged children called Safe Spaces. This innovative program fosters the development of pro-social attitudes and behaviours in preschool-aged children. Developing self-esteem, learning empathy, emotional literacy and peaceful problem solving skills at a young age reduces the risk of children becoming victims of or engaging in bullying behaviours as they become older. Safe Spaces teaches young children learn to recognize their own feelings and those of others, to use expressive vocabulary, to take action when they see unfairness, and to solve problems in peaceful ways. A five year study of Safe Spaces by Dr. Kim Schonert-Reichl from the University of British Columbia completed in 2008 indicates that Safe Spaces shows promise as an effective bullying prevention strategy. For more information about Safe Spaces, call Westcoast Child Care Resource Centre at 604 709-5661.

    Our school, Aspen Park Elementary School, in Comox BC is encouraging students to take the pledge to not tolerate bullying and wear pink on February 25th.
    As the vice principal I deal with bullying of all sorts and severity and want students to think carefully about what bullying is and how we can prevent it.
    I and one of our Educational Assistants have promised to dye our hair pink if 300 out of 350 of our students wear pink and promise to rid the school of bullying.

  9. Tarentorus Public School says:

    Welcome from Tarentorus Public School in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Our school has 225 students from ages 4 to 13 (Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8). What makes our school especially unique is that there are 3 Congregated Special Education Classes. The students from these classes are integrated for various activities (for example, academics, gym, track & field, cross country run, etc.) when appropriate.

    These are the activities that we are planning for PinkShirt Day.

    *Anti-Bullying t-shirts -black t-shirts with a pink octagon. Printed in the octagon is ‘Bullying Stops Here’-on the back ‘Tarentorus P.S.’ in pink-almost 70 t-shirts were sold-we have designated each Wed. AnitBullying day. The students can wear their new t-shirts or something pink.

    **Wed. Feb. 25/09-invited our Community Partners (Boston Pizza, Sault College, Ont. Prov. Police, Sault Ste. Marie Police, School Board Trustee, School Board Personnel)
    *School Wide Anti-Bullying Rally-all students will meet in the gym-Video—UNITED, The Pink Shirt
    -students will be divided into 6 groups, ensuring students from each grade are in all the groups-senior students will take on leadership roles
    -student groups will rotate among 3 activities
    1. parachute play
    2. make pink & black bracelets
    3. banner with Bullying Stops Here!
    -each will trace their hand and sign their name

    **as a follow up each class will develop their own Anti-Bullying Pledge that will be displayed in front of their class. We will also have a book club for Junior age students. The book we will use is Jay McGraw’s Life Strategies for Dealing with Bullies.

    I am planning a Pink Lady Only event- all my friends and work mates are going to have a ladies only night out to a cosmic bowling alley and were all going to wear pink shirts with white bras for the cosmic affect. It is a way to connect and meat new people and show my friends they mean the world to me and to have fun!!!
    “GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
    I am not leaving anyone out. :)

  11. Wow domination is the right word. Although I still don?t get how this could be better than focusing all your effort on a single website.

  12. Thai News says:

    I really hate the current situation here in Thailand. It affects my sales, my life and and and. When is it going to finish…

  13. Excelent website, I recently came across it and I am already a fan. I just got rid of 30 pounds in 30 days, and I am excited to share my weight loss success with as many people as possible. If I can lose weight then any one can. No matter what you do, never give up and you WILL accomplish every one of your weight loss ambitions!

  14. I wrote and sung a song about bullying which I shared on youtube. It is a song that is ung from the victims view at first and it asks the bully how they would feel if you were the one that everybody hated and then it goes on to tell about the desperation and then near the end of the song it asks the bully how they feel now that they have destroyed a tortured child. This song was inspired by Amanda Todd’s passing and has many facts included in the video about bullying. It is meant to stir up feelings and make people think twice about bullying.

    Everyone here at work has purchased the T-shirts and we will wear them also putting a picture of the support in the newspaper with other people in the community who also support pink day all get together and put ads into the paper. I know this is an important cause and I look forward to sharing support with others in the community.

  17. Marsha says:

    In Monday night’s meeting, the Junior Canadian Rangers in Tumbler Ridge, BC, will be hearing about bullying via a PHASE (Preventing Harrassment and Abuse through Successful Education) module then we will be making tie-dye pink t-shirts . We’ll wear the shirts to school on Wednesday to show solidarity and support for those in our community who
    suffer in silence. .

  22. Justin Graham says:

    I am a store manager for Starbucks Coffee Company. I originate from Coquitlam, BC where #pinkshirtday was always a big event. I’ve worked hard to make PinkShirtDay live in my stores and now I’ve brought it to Alberta, where I now reside.
    This year my store will be wearing ‘everything pink’ and we’re raising money for the Boys & Girls Club of Strathcona County (Sherwood Park, AB).
    I cannot wait to see my team decked out in all the glorious pink — fun fact, pink used to be a man’s colour back in the day. I fail to understand why we genderize colour — a colour is a colour; wear pink with pride I say! I’ll be in pink from head to toe, right down to the knee-high socks, on Feb 26th!

  23. Maria Riedyk says:

    I do stand-up against bullying year round, where ever I see it.
    I intervene, especially at work, at school, and in the neighborhood, and if I need help to stop this I will call the RCMP and they will be right there when there are too many against one. I wear a pink anti-bully shirt in my heart year-round, year after year as this epidemic needs to be stopped. Bullying is a taught behavior by observation or being told by the parent to the child, so not only the kids involved needs to be reprogrammed but also the parents who think it is funny and laugh it off, which, I have actually met in my life-long journey. As parents are responsible to teaching these tactics then they must be educated and pay hefty fines in order to pay for the victim to get the help they need, as this is not tolerable in any society, shape, form, or norm.
