Tough Enough to Wear Pink Challenge | September 8, 2020 🎗
1: Who is up for a challenge?
(It’s a good thing .. when I say trust me!)
2: I need at least 13 people (it won’t cost you anything but little bit of time!)
3: At least 13 people with Pink shirts!
So far we have surpassed 13 participants. Yay!
Far to often society sees Men as ”Strong emotionally” and ”Women as expressive”
Men appear stronger because as society dictated they must remain in a state of unexpressive. ”Don't ever cry, don't wear pink, don't show them you are weak, be a man, be tough, show me your muscles, you hit like a girl”
We have heard that each year on September 10, World Suicide Prevention Day marks a commitment to saving lives by bringing together communities from across Canada and around the world.
This year’s theme is Take a Minute, Change a Life to demonstrate the important role we all have to play in supporting those who are vulnerable.
We all have a minute to change a life.
The Challenge is a pink shirt challenge:
“Tough enough to wear pink” to support mental health and to stop the stigma with men.
I need at least 13 people, one for each province and the 3 territories, to support our men, and to get as many men and women to send me a picture with them wearing a pink shirt (it could be the anti-bullying shirts - because this is a part of wellness as well.
We as women can also post or have a sign saying I support #StoppingTheStigma”
The challenge is up for September 10 to coincide with World Suicide Awareness day!
Collecting photos for the Month of September:
Let’s do this!
If You have a pink shirt - wear it and send a picture to me
