“I think Pink Day is a national day to celebrate the bully prevention and awareness programs all over the country,” said Mullinder. “To celebrate all those people who are and being someone’s hero and talking about situations that they’re seeing or going through.”
Mullinder said it’s important to add his voice to this initiative, as it lets kids know even those who seem the strongest are not immune to bullying.
“You’ll see the kids realize ‘Wait, he’s going through the same things that I’m going through! This is pretty cool,'” he said. “When those guys make themselves vulnerable, it really provides some motivation for kids who are in their situation to get up and do something.”
