If you notice more people wearing pink on Wednesday, there’s a very important reason as to why.

It’s the 14th annual Pink Shirt Day, a day created in 2007 to combat bullying in all walks of life.

It was 14-years-ago two boys at a Cambridge Nova Scotia High School wore pink shirts to class and rallied many others to do the same after they saw a fellow male student being bullied for wearing pink the day before.

Since that day one in five kids are still affected by bullying in some form everyday.
