Join the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County and its team of non-profit partners for a county-wide celebration of this international event! Wear a pink shirt on February 22 to support bullying prevention programs like ours that use character based education to help “turn bullies into buddies.”
Pink Shirt Day is an international bullying prevention event which originated in Canada when a boy was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on his first day at high school. Bystanders came to school the next day wearing pink. They created a ‘Sea of Pink’ to make a statement to stand up for others. In Palm Beach County, thousands of children and adults prepare for Pink Shirt Day with an annual local educational theme and event coordinated by the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County’s Turning Bullies into Buddies program and celebrate Pink Shirt Day by wearing pink on the last Wednesday in February.
The theme this year is “Gratitude is the Attitude.”
Register to come to the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County on February 8th or 9th to network, meet local vendors and attend a FREE training. Learn how to prepare your K-5 students for Pink Shirt Day with literature-based activities designed to teach an Attitude of Gratitude!
