We've wrapped up our sales of Tsm'syen artist Morgan Asoyuf's Every Child Matters t-shirts as of today, and are glad to announce that with your help we've managed to raise $26,094 for two charities that benefit Indigenous youth in British Columbia.
We offer our deep gratitude to everyone who purchased one of these shirts, of which 100% of the proceeds are being donated to the Orange Shirt Society and the BC Aboriginal Child Care Society. Cheques for $13,047 will be issued to each of them.
Wear your orange shirts today, on this National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, and reflect on and honour the children who didn't come home.
True reconciliation is going to be a very long road and Vancouver Is Awesome is dedicated to walking arm-in-arm with all members of our communities to help realize it.
Again, thank you.
