I am excited to work at the Day of Pink, helping schools and youth communities celebrate diversity. We all know bullying happens, but we can make a difference. The Day of Pink is a great tool for creating a safer and more respectful space.
As someone who has been bullied, standing together to challenge bullying and change behaviour makes a real difference. I remember how my close friends stood up for me in situations where people bullied me for my skin colour, my family stuation, and who I was. They helped me stay strong and positive when others were cruel. That is why working at JersVision and Day of Pink matters so much to me. I want to help by letting you know that people do care, people are kind, and we can help you feel strong.
The Day of Pink is April 10th, but you can get ready NOW by:
Consider organizing a Day of Pink fundraiser to support work to stop bullying in schools and youth communities (email me if you need anything Gala@JersVision.org or make your donation at CanadaHelps).
This year’s theme for our Day of Pink Gala is Dialogue, and we are encouraging each and every one of you to start dialogues to challenge bullying RIGHT NOW!
Talk about it in your class, at work, and in your community, and if you need anything, I am here to help. We will be working with organizations to create Day of Pink Dialogues, and if you are interested in having one at your school or organization, please let me know (my email: Gala@JersVision.org).
Have a great day! Don’t forget to check out our websites DayOfPink.org and JersVision.org. Please mark it down on your calendar that the International Day of Pink is April 10, 2013.
