Special thanks to Pacific CoastCom staff and suppliers for a recent donation of $8,000 in support of Covenant House Vancouver! Funds were raised during Pacific CoastCom's annual auction event and were matched by the organization. We are so appreciative of Pacific CoastCom's role, an example of caring corporate citizenship that involves employees in the community-building process while they enjoy taking part in creative fundraising. This is the 12th year that Pacific CoastCom has been raising funds for Covenant House during their annual event, which helps us continue to do what we do best - provide essential services and support to build brighter futures for Vancouver's homeless youth. Thank you Pacific CoastCom!
Pink Shirt Day was created when two Nova Scotia high school students supported a fellow student that was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt by also wearing pink (read the full story here). From that moment of solidarity Pink Shirt Day was born and it allows all people to stand up to bullies everywhere by wearing pink.
Bullying continues to be a major concern in schools, workplaces and over the internet and it is important to raise awareness around this issue and stand up to bullies!
