Saturday, September 30 is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. This day has personal meaning to me as an Indigenous person whose father along, many other families and friends are residential school survivors.
Please join me and many others in acknowledging this important day and supporting Every Child Matters by wearing Orange to work on Friday Sept. 29.
STAFF DRAW for ORANGE SHIRT!!
If you are looking for an orange shirt you may be in luck! I have an extra shirt (see pic below) that was Indigenous designed by Alannah Morningstar Jewell and approved by Phyllis Webstad. More about the shirt design here: https://www.aritzia.com/en/stories/ndtr-osd-2023 . It retailed for $40 and is sold out across the country.
It is Unisex size Medium (women’s L/XL, 21 inches across or 42 inches around chest)
All staff who would like to be entered into the draw can make a donation using the form below or in person to the reception at your site. All donations will be collected and be donated on behalf of ConnectWell Staff directly to the Orange Shirt Society. (tax receipts for donations over 20$ provided)
We will draw a name at random from all those participating. Good Luck!! DRAW DATE: Thursday Sept. 28 @ 4:30 pm
