Today, thousands of New Zealanders will wear pink shirts to stand up against bullying.

To mark the day, a series of powerful new videos have been released, with kids from Wellington's Saint Francis de Sales school sharing what it's like to be bullied.

Warning: This will make you cry!

According to pinkshirtday.org.nz, the international event started in Canada in 2007 when a Year 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. Two other students bought a large number of pink shirts and distributed them among their male classmates to wear in support of the victim.
