Anti-Bullying Day is a day when people wear mainly a pink shirt to symbolize a stand against bullying, an idea that originated in Canada.
The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price in Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student Chuck McNeill was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school.
The last Wednesday each February is now the national anti-bullying day in Canada.
