When Caitlin Prater received a nasty note on Facebook urging her to commit suicide, she transformed the negative energy into a campaign of positivity. The Canadian high school student put her school supplies to good use–specifically those Post-Its– by writing uplifting notes on every single locker in George McDougall High.
The encouraging act was considered litter by McDougall, but after businesses started adopting the Post-It Postivity the town of Airedrie dedicated October 9th Positive Post-It Day. Hooray! Bullies: 1 Caitlyn: Hundreds

Prince isn’t the only one donning the royal color today. In honor of GLAAD’s Spirit Day, which rallies against bullying of the LGBTQ youth, celebs like transgender poster girl Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), mommy-to-be Kandi Burruss and her RHOA castmate Cynthia Bailey pulled out the purple outfits.
Today Show anchor Tamron Hall reminded us of the significance of the day alongside fellow anchor Natalie Morales.
And we saved the best for last. The Prancing Elites took to Facebook to urge supporters to go purple. As an added incentive they give a dose of their song and dance skills. You betta werk, hunty!
