Shirt Day across Canada is Wednesday February 25th. Pink Shirt Day originated
in Nova Scotia when two students organized the day to protest against bullying
in their school. They distributed pink shirts to all of the boys to wear in
empathy with a boy who was being bullied. The day has grown over the years and
