Let’s Beat Cyberbullying Together this Pink Shirt Day

This Pink Shirt Day, Be KindFebruary 27 is Pink Shirt Day, a Canada-wide show of force against bullying. We’re proud to help increase awareness of the anti-bullying movement, and promote one of the values we hold dear: kindness.

Pink Shirt Day got its start in Nova Scotia in 2007 when a group of Grade 9 boys took a stand against bullying by wearing pink shirts to school after a friend of theirs was bullied for doing the same.

The movement took off across the country and around the world.

The focus of this year’s Pink Shirt Day is on cyberbullying, an issue which can affect everyone, but which is particularly challenging for teens.

One in three Canadian youth admit to having been cyberbullied.


6 Ways You Can Help Combat CyberbullyingPink Shirt Day

Here are six great ways to combat cyberbullying on February 27 and everyday:

  1. Stop and think before you post. Ask yourself if what you’re about to post is true, helpful, inspiring, necessary, and kind
  2. Fill your friends’ social media walls with positive messages
  3. Stand up to bullying behaviour when you see it happening
  4. Tell a trusted friend or adult about cyberbullying — whether it’s happening to you or someone else
  5. Parents: monitor your kids’ online activities closely
  6. Participate in Pink Shirt Day by wearing something pink to show that you do not condone cyberbullying


London Drugs is a Proud Supporter of Pink Shirt Day

In addition to pink shirts, you can also purchase pink shirt plush bears, Be Kind toques, and pink wrist bands to raise awareness and funds to combat cyberbullying.

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors

Ever wondered what it would feel like to be a real-life Santa Claus? Thanks to you, we got to experience the magic of Santa’s gift gifting this holiday season through the Stocking Stuffers for Seniors program.

Thanks to donations from our wonderful customers in stores throughout western Canada, we were able to fulfill Christmas wishes for 15,000 seniors, surpassing last year’s achievement of 10,000.

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors

So many of these seniors don’t have family or anyone with whom to spend the holidays, which makes Christmas a very difficult time.

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors

Every gift made a huge difference in the lives of the seniors who received them, most of whom asked for basics like socks, cozy blankets, and body wash.

So many customers went above and beyond and provided Christmas cards, well wishes, and little treats that truly were amazing, bringing smiles to thousands of faces!
