Pink Shirt Day - Stop Bullying!

Today is Pink Shirt Day. I read about it in one of John Izzo's latest newsletters (worth a read) ... this is his article on Pink Shirt Day. Pink is very often associated with breast cancer causes, however a student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school and the reaction from some other students to that event drove a movement to stop bullying ... hence Pink Shirt Day. I did try to link to the Pink Shirt Day website ... however it has a sign saying Suspended! Not sure what that is about. There is however plenty of coverage across the country ... a blog on the Our Big Earth site; an article in the Province (Vancouver); even a Facebook page dedicated to Pink Shirt Day. A good cause ... a good marketing strategy and a strong message that bullying should not be tolerated ... and to me that means anywhere! ----------------------------------------------- Kevin Dee is CEO of Eagle (a Professional Staffing Company) Want to know where Canada's hot jobs are?
