Spreading kindness on Pink Shirt Day

Today, we painted our office pink to support Pink Shirt Day. Since way back in 2011, we've been a part of this global movement which encourages people to speak up and stand together to stop bullying. 

Pink Shirt Day aims to create a community where people feel safe, valued and respected, regardless of age, sex, gender, ability or cultural background. 

It's celebrated around the globe after it began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying after another student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. 

So this year not only did we wear pink, we made a video to raise awareness about the movement, we ate pink food, decorated our office pink and had the team from Sticks'n'stones come in to chat to us about bullying and how to put a stop to it.
