For the past three years, we, with the help of some amazing community supporters, have hosted a breakfast on Pink Shirt Day with the goal of not only raising awareness of how being resilient, kind and healthy can benefit our community, but also raising funds to run our programs and services encouraging and teaching resiliency, empathy, kindness and understanding.

Pink Shirt Day began when two Nova Scotia teens took a stand against bullying. They noticed that a new grade 9 boy was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. In response, David Shepherd and Travis Price went to purchase 50 pink tank tops. They proceeded to distribute a message to their classmates outlining their plan, and the following morning they handed out all 50 pink tank tops to boys at school. According to Mr. Price, when the bullied boy walked into school that morning, his face spoke volumes and “it looked like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders.” The boy felt supported by his peers and those bullies were never heard from again.

Since that initial act of kindness, Pink Shirt Day has grown into a nationwide initiative. The idea that two exceptional teens came up with has grown it into a campaign that helps thousands of children, youth and adults each year. And here at the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, we want to help.
