Why Pink Shirts?

Pink Shirts have become a symbol of support for anti-bullying education.

The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student Charles McNeil was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school.

Since the inaugural act of support, Pink Shirt Day is recognized not only in Canada but in many countries around the world.
