Join the Surrey Board of Trade on February 29th as we tell the community that bullying stops here in workplaces with Pink Shirt Day 2012. The Surrey Board of Trade staff will be wearing pink also!!

You’ve probably heard of the campaign, but have you ever participated? Bullying is a major problem in our workplaces. The Surrey Board of Trade invites businesses to help raise awareness on these issues by wearing pink on February 29th, 2012. The Surrey Board of Trade encourages all of you to wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere.

Why Pink? It originates from an incident that happened when two Nova Scotia high school students organized a school protest in sympathy with a new Grade 9 boy. The boy had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school, thus the two students handed out pink shirts to all boys in the school, making a non-violent statement that bullying will not be tolerated.

Purchase your shirt today and get ready to stand up and show your support! Shirts are available at London Drugs stores across Western Canada or online at www.pinkshirtday.ca or by email at [email protected] All proceeds go to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs.
