London Drugs has stock of Pink Shirts

Pink Shirt Day returns on Feb. 27 — and London Drugs is the place to pick up the anti-bullying garment for $9.80.

All proceeds will go to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund and the Kamloops Boys and Girls Clubs

Celebrating its sixth year, CKNW’s Pink Shirt Day builds awareness against bullying.

“We are proud to return as a staunch supporter and partner of the sixth annual Pink Shirt Day,” said London Drugs president and CEO Wynne Powell.

“We encourage everyone to support this important awareness campaign and purchase Pink Shirt Day T-shirts from London Drugs. The shirts have a new design and all funds raised go to the in each community we serve, helping to foster local anti-bullying programs.”

“Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC have been so fortunate to receive funds from the Pink Shirt Day campaign each year since its inception,” said Carolyn Tuckwell, president and CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC.

“These funds have supported our anti-bullying programs that help children and youth to develop the skills to help to put an end to bullying in all of its forms.

“Our club kids feel more confident standing up for a friend or classmate that they see being bullied and some even talk about how they’ve been able to help their parents to better understand bullying.

“Now that’s impact!”

During the past six years, London Drugs has helped raise more than $330,000 for Boys and Girls Clubs in Western Canada through the Pink Shirt Day Campaign.

Pink Shirt Day T-shirts are available for $9.80 at London Drugs in both adult and youth sizes ranging from small to XXL, as well as online at pinkshirtday.ca.
