We know the Internet can be a pretty negative place, and it’s this negativity that often lowers self-esteem and creates bullies. This February, in lead-up to Pink Shirt Day, we want to change that! We’re teaming up with Coast Capital Savings to turn the Internet positive and help stop bullying. Let’s #PinkItForward.
How can you get involved? It’s simple:
1. During the weeks leading up to and on Pink Shirt Day – February 25th, post a photo of someone special on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. It could be a friend, teammate, colleague, family member, classmate or even someone you just met.
2. Add the caption below and fill in the blanks with their name and why they’re so awesome:
Twitter: For #PinkShirtDay, I appreciate ____________ because________. Now it’s your turn to #PinkItForward
Instagram or Facebook: For #PinkShirtDay, I’m helping to stop bullying by? turning the Internet into a positive place. I #PinkItForward to ________ for _______________. Now it’s your turn!
3. Remember to tag that person so they can also #PinkItForward.
It’s that easy! And remember, each time someone spreads the kindness by using #PinkItForward, Coast Capital Savings will donate $1 to Pink Shirt Day – up to $45,000!
This February 25th, let’s turn the Internet positive!
Special thanks to our partner Coast Capital Savings who will be donating $1 for every #PinkItForward to Pink Shirt Day!
