CKNW Orphans’ Fund Official Pink Shirt Day
Wednesday February 24, 2016 is CKNW Orphans’ Fund Official Pink Shirt Day, a day in support of kindness and acceptance, and against bullying. At KidzFirst Canada we are big supporters of everything Pink Shirt Day stands for. You may see a lot of people wearing pink tomorrow and buying a Pink T-shirt at London Drugs is one way you can help, but there are others:
- Donate online by visiting pinkshirtday.ca.
- #PinkItForward: On February 24th, 2016, Coast Capital Savings will donate $1 for every use of the hashtag up to $45,000 to support anti-bullying programs. To participate post a photo of someone special on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter on February 24th: a friend, teammate, colleague, family member, classmate or even someone you’ve just met. Then add a caption describing why that person is awesome, and instruct them to and spread the kindness! You can use these examples:Twitter: I #PinkItForward to [tag your friend] for [reason why they’re special]. Now it’s your turn! #PinkShirtDayInstagram or Facebook: For #PinkShirtDay, I’m helping to put an end to bullying by spreading kindness. I #PinkItForward to [tag your friend] for [reason why they’re special]. Now it’s your turn!
