Pink T Shirt Day Society Anti-Bullying Campaign
February 22, 2017 is Pink T-Shirt Day! 
In 2007, two Nova Scotia students decided to take action after witnessing a younger student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The students bought 50 pink t-shirts and encouraged schoolmates to wear them and send a powerful message of solidarity to the bully.

Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. Each year, on Pink T-Shirt Day, we encourage all of you to wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere. It is important that victims of bullying know they are not alone and there is help and support available. Wearing a pink shirt sends a strong message to them that others care. 

Often, the simple act of wearing a shirt can start conversations - conversations can be a big step towards healing and helping!

150 Years of Confederation1867 - 2017: Canada is 150 years strongNearly 150 years ago, at the Charlottetown and Québec conferences, the Fathers of Confederation worked on a visionary project—to create a lasting democracy—which today serves as a model for the world. Many important people, milestones, cultural and political events have shaped our country’s history and helped it grow into a Canada that is a strong model and leader in the world. We are proud of our identity, diversity, innovation, and natural beauty.  We are a country that is a free, open, diverse and pluralistic society.

There are events all year that will be highlighted but the first event is in the city of Surrey on February 21st 2017.

Coldest Night of the Year Walk is is a fun, family-friendly fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless, and hurting across Canada. It happens on the last Saturday in February to raise awareness and funds for local charities addressing homelessness in their communities. They pick that day because it happens to be Canada's coldest day of the year, on average. Rain, Snow, or whatever the weather brings us on that day, we walk. Perhaps, in a little way, we come to appreciate the challenges of many who walk this weather regularly. 

The White Rock walk is hosted by Sources Community Resources Society. They are very close to raising their goal of $70,000. You can help them get all the way there by donating or walking with a team.

Bundle up and accomplish something remarkable by joining in on the fun this Saturday February 25th!

With its 8 km stretch of sandy beach and 2.5 km promenade lined with lively restaurants, White Rock is named for the large, white boulder that stands on its shoreline. The City of White Rock has built up and around the beach and now offers many boutique restaurants and shops. The community is a mix of single family homes, townhomes and both low and high-rise apartments, many of which enjoy views of the waters in Semiahmoo Bay. White Rock even enjoys 20% more sunshine than the City of Vancouver which is easily accessible for commuters from the White Rock area. You can also enjoy shopping across the border as it’s just a short five-minute drive from White Rock.
