Pink Shirt Day

On May 2016, we ask New Zealanders to celebrate Pink Shirt Day and stand together to take action against bullying.

Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying, mobilising their whole school, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. Pink Shirt Day aims to create schools, workplaces and communities where all people feel safe, valued and respected.

Will you stand with us to stop bullying on 20 May?
Wear a pink shirt.
Pink Shirt Day is all about action – small actions leading to larger actions that create positive change in social relationships. We can all take the simplest action by wearing a pink shirt on Friday 20 May. In this way you show you are an ally, and are committed to reducing bullying and promoting positive relationships. It might seem like a small thing but, to someone who is feeling alone, the pink shirt shows there are people around who care and, together, can connect and make a difference. Becoming an ally also promotes a kinder society.

Text PINK to 2446 to make a $3 automatic payment to the Mental Health Foundation.
