It is an important time for Canadians to learn more about the injustices of Canada's Residential Schools, show solidarity to Residential School survivors, their families, and those who did not make it home, and find ways to move forward on Truth and Reconciliation Commission commitments.
This orange shirt features a heart designed by Tsimshian artist Morgan Asoyuf.
This year, proceeds from orange shirt sales will be directed to the Native Northwest Reconciliation Fund, Orange Shirt Society, and the BC Aboriginal Child Care Association.
About the Native Northwest Reconciliation Fund
The Native Northwest Reconciliation Fund was given life through the proceeds from orange shirt sales. It was created to support people and families who continue to be impacted by Residential Schools and intergenerational trauma. Its purpose is to advance Reconciliation by funding initiatives that support Indigenous wellness, learning, and culture.
In it's first year orange shirt proceeds will fund new multi-year scholarships for Indigenous students at post-secondary institutions, supporting more than 120 Indigenous students.
