Seriously?? How many people claimed February 24th as their day? Who Knew February 24th was everybody’s day?
Pink Day was established in 2007 after a pair of students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, saw one of their fellow students at Central Kings Rural High School being bullied for no other reason than that they were wearing a pink shirt.
In a stroke of brilliance, these two got together and decided to show support for the student and take a stand against bullying by getting everyone at their school to wear a pink shirt the next day. Pink Day was created to stomp out all bullying and spread understanding, and it’s a concept spreading throughout the world.

I Hate Coriander Day – SERIOUSLY? But…some people really think it tastes like soap. Here’s the scoop from Encylopedia Britannica.
Inconvenience Yourself Day
This day is meant to serve as an incentive for others to acknowledge their appreciation for acquaintances or strangers and to promote a respectful attitude and an attentive demeanor.
We can all celebrate by simply opening a door for an old lady, giving up a seat to a pregnant lady, helping a child cross the street, stopping to ask if a tourist is lost and needs directions, offering to carry a suitcase up the stairs and generally making a small sacrifice.
But most of all, we have to reflect on what others need and how we can help. It can make a big difference!
