From its humble beginnings in 2007 in small-town Nova Scotia where a Grade 9 student was teased for wearing a pink polo shirt to school, Pink Shirt Day has spread across the globe as a way to spread kindness and acceptance. Last year alone, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations.
On Wednesday, February 26, 2020, everyone across the Waterloo Catholic District School Board is invited and encouraged to wear pink to promote a message of inclusion as we “lift each other up.”
Wear pink tomorrow Jaguars!
