Castle Fuels (2008) Inc. staff made sure to wear pink on February 27th this year in support of Anti-Bullying Day.

What is the story behind Pink Shirt Day?

Chuck McNeill, who was in 9th grade at the time, was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school, so David Shepherd and Travis Price bought 50 pink shirts to distribute and stick up for their fellow classmate. The idea originated in Canada, with the 3 of them being from Berwick, NS.

The idea originated in Canada in 2007, with the 3 of them being from Berwick, NS., and is held on various dates around the world.

Gordon Campbell, the premier of BC in 2008, proclaimed February 27th to be the provincial anti-bullying day, which is now known Nationwide.

Show your support, be sure to wear Pink!
