‘Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora’ translates to ‘Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying’…
Last week, our Auckland and Wellington offices rallied together to raise money and support Pink Shirt Day – a national campaign to put an end to bullying by celebrating diversity and promoting positive social relationships.
Both offices raised a very respectable $470 for the charity and celebrated the movement by each wearing a pink shirt for the day.
Pink Shirt Day is celebrated annually around the globe and began in Canada in 2007 when two students decided to take a stand against homophobic bullying. Since then, New Zealand has jumped on board to support the good cause and the campaign grows stronger and larger each year.
It’s about creating a community where people feel safe, valued and respected, regardless of age, sex, gender, identity, sexual orientation, ability or cultural background.
Well done to our team for getting involved in such a worth cause and it was great to see a sea of pink in the offices!
