Canadian teenager Caitlin Prater-Haacke dealt with her bullies in a unique way — and inspired many of her fellow Canadians to share the Post-it love.

Caitlin chose to fight her bullies with a sandwich pack of positive post-it notes — one for the locker of every student at her high school. Her fellow students loved it and, although she was reprimanded by her school for "littering," her story sparked a movement in her hometown of Airdie. Even the city council passed a "Post-it" resolution. Before long positive post-it noting had spread further afield. Wouldn't it be awesome if an international Positive Post-it Day was created?
