More Than $1,000 Raised for Pink Shirt Day at Vancouver Career College

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Vancouver Career College campuses throughout the province participated in Pink Shirt Day on February 22, 2017 and raised over $1,000 in support of CKNW Orphans’ Fund. Staff and students at six campuses participated, raising money through various fundraising events, including the sale of pink shirts.

“Vancouver Career College is proud to support Pink Shirt Day this year,” said Monika Klanyi, Campus Director at the Kelowna campus. “We are passionate about contributing to our community and greatly appreciate the generosity of our staff and students in making such a positive difference with their donations.”

Since 2008, the CKNW Orphans’ Fund and CKNW radio station have been raising funds for anti-bullying programs. 100% net proceeds raised are distributed to various organizations that support children’s healthy self-esteem and teach empathy, compassion, and kindness. The event originated in Nova Scotia in 2007 after two teenage boys witnessed a new grade nine boy being harassed by other students. They distributed pink shirts to all the boys in their school to take a stand against bullying and support their classmate. Since then, the annual event has become a symbol for anti-bullying campaigns across the country.
