Day of Pink
Submitted by Aneta Costin on Tue, 04/07/2015 - 07:26
International Day of Pink, Wednesday, April 8. What will you be wearing?
Join the students and staff of FHCI tomorrow and wear pink to send your message of support to end bullying. FHCI and all our special guests will be ‘in the pink’ tomorrow as we unite in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop all forms of bullying.
“The Day of Pink is a symbol, a spark, that empowers and inspires youth across Canada to create amazing social change!”
Day of Pink Ambassadors are politicians and community leaders from all over Canada who are willing to stand up and speak out on behalf of the diversity of others. Some of those ambassadors will be speaking to our students tomorrow. However, the most important and influential Day of Pink ambassadors are you, your child, and every other person who takes a stand against bullying in schools, in the workplace and in the community. Together, we can make a change. The change starts with us and it starts now.
Join your child and all 1000+ of us at FHCI tomorrow—wear pink!
