Introducing our Every Child Matters Tee, featuring original artwork by Cheyenne Large. Crafted with the softest fabric, this tee was inspired by the profound significance of Orange Shirt Day, observed annually on September 30th.
Orange Shirt Day stands as a poignant tribute to the survivors of residential schools and their families. By wearing this tee, you become a vital advocate, raising awareness about the devastating impact these schools had on Indigenous communities, our shared culture, and language.
The inception of Orange Shirt Day traces back to the courageous story shared by Phyllis, a survivor of a residential school. She recounted her first day at the school, donning a vibrant orange shirt lovingly purchased by her grandmother. This deeply moving narrative sheds light on the profound destruction wrought upon Indigenous people when they were forcibly taken from their families as young children.
By participating in Orange Shirt Day, we open up meaningful discussions about the lasting effects of residential schools and the enduring legacy they have left behind. This day serves as a call to action for all Canadians and allies to engage in compassionate conversations that promote understanding and reconciliation.
In alignment with our commitment to this cause, we are proud to announce that $1000 will be donated to the Indian Residential Schools Survivors Society. Through your support, we strive to make a tangible difference in the lives of survivors, aiding in their healing journey.
Join us in honoring the resilience and strength of those affected by the dark chapter of residential schools. By wearing the Every Child Matters Tee, you become a symbol of unity, compassion, and the pursuit of a brighter future. Together, let us create a space for meaningful conversations that foster understanding and reconciliation for all.
