Show your support and commitment to the principle that every child matters by ordering your 2017 Orange Shirt today.
Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.
Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
Proceeds from every t-shirt sold go to Safe and Caring Schools & Communities to help fund awareness programs in Alberta Schools and communities. T-Shirts are just $10 ($11 for XXXL) plus GST and shipping costs.
The winning design by Amy Peters, was selected by community involvement through on-line voting and at Aboriginal Days through-out the month of June.
