Stand up to bullying with Pink Shirt Day on February 25th

Every seven minutes someone is bullied on a playground in Canada (www.bullying.org). A University of Guelph Bullying Study found that 50 per cent of Canadian school children report being bullied, with 45 per cent of surveyed children feeling unsafe when they go to school.

Pink Shirt Day is February 25th and we are getting our pink on with some fashionable upcycling inspiration for the official Pink Shirt Day t-shirts that you can purchase exclusively at London Drugs for $9.80 in support of anti-bullying initiatives across the country.

“Pink Shirt Day is a way for us help share the message that you can make noise against bullying, and give the youth in our programs a way to share their voice,” said Liz O’Neill, Executive Director, Boys and Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton. “Our clubs in Edmonton and area have directly benefited financially from the sales of the official shirts, and we continue to see these donations increase year over year as the initiative continues to grow. We encourage everyone to support this cause, grab their official shirt at London Drugs and join us in making some noise against bullying.”

And don’t just wear your shirt once… recycle it.

I love this year’s style. It’s retro, fun, and best of all… it’s pink yo!

I turned these shirts into dresses early to give you some ideas beyond Pink Shirt Day. For inspiration, you can read my tutorial on how to turn a shirt into a girl’s dress when I get it up later today. Now you can carry this message around through the summer months.

I asked my community on Facebook about bullying in their lives and April from This Moms Got Something to Say spoke up and shared some great posts on bullying. I also suggest this post about dealing with both the bullied and bully child.
