Wear Pink on Anti-Bullying Day: Oct 20

Do you know what you’re wearing next Wednesday? I do. Wednesday, October 20, 2010 is the day to WEAR PINK in solidarity with an anti-bullying campaign you may have seen on Facebook.

Over 160,000 kids stayed home from school today because of bullies. Too often, bullying goes unreported and is perpetuated by the stigma associated with seeking help. In fact, in many cases, bullying can lead to suicide. Pink Shirt Day promotes bullying prevention in our schools, homes, workplaces and the Internet.
