Wear Pink and take a stance on Bullying

On our way home from Playgroup this morning and P told A and I that we should be wearing pink today. I had no idea why he was telling us to wear pink. He also said I don't have pink but I am suppose to wear it today.

I was talking to my mom on the phone and she right away said "Are you have pink on today?"

I said "no, what is with the pink P just told me to put pink on?"

A little more research into the Pink, today a student-led anti-bullying movement, Speak Out, is asking people to wear pink to raise awareness on Bullying. Speak Out founder Alex has launched his self-produced documentary Speak Out: The Documentary today and this day has been declared National Speak Out day. Students across the country will be wearing pink to help raise awareness and Stop bullying!

Pepsi Refresh Project is a program that funds ideas promoting positive social change, Alex applied for the $5000 grant to help him create this great documentary. Alex is an aspiring filmmaker and wanted to create a movie that would be used as an anti-bullying tool and encourage peer dialog about the issue. Alex was one of 10 chosen by Canadians to receive funding following a two-month public voting campaign on the Pepsi Refresh website

Ways that you can help out: Wear pink and Speak Out. Go to Speak Out on facebook, follow Speak Out on Twitter and tweet using the hastag #SWSO. Please watch the Documentary then spread the word about Speak Out.

We can make a difference if we all work together! Please also read my son's experience with bullying in JK here.
