Join Red Cross Pink Day and be someone's hero

Would you be someone’s hero? If you witness bullying, whether it’s in the school halls, playgrounds or online, we encourage you to take a stand against it by speaking up if it is safe to do so.
Saskatchewan Roughrider Dan Clark in Cornwall Mall promoting Pink Day
Join thousands of schools and individuals across Canada uniting again for the annual Red Cross Pink Day, taking place on February 28. Saskatchewan Roughriders Dan Clark and Jorgen Hus were in schools and malls in Saskatchewan this week promoting the launch of Red Cross Pink Day and raising awareness of bullying issues. 

Pink Day started because two boys chose to do something about bullying rather than stand by and watch it happen. These two students, Travis Price and David Shepherd, witnessed a grade nine student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia being bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. They chose to rally their peers to send a message to the bullies, and the next day, the halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts.

Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring others to stand together and take action against violence and bullying. Red Cross has been celebrating Pink Day since 2011 and continues to offer programs and courses for violence, bullying and abuse prevention for youth, educators, parents, in the workplace and more.

Be someone’s hero and take a stand against bullying – find local Red Cross Pink Day activities in your province to see how you can get involved and buy a t-shirt in support:
