Every Child Matters Short Sleeve Tee
Indigenous artist Kayla Todd is a member of the Onyota’a:ka (Oneida) of six nations/Iroquois and her band is Grand River. She created this design to honour the countless lives lost in BC residential schools. 100% of the profits from this limited edition drop will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society, the charity of Todd’s choosing.
I believe “Every Child Matters” is to first off, spread awareness on residential schools and to honour those who have endured so much trauma from them and to remember the ones whose lives were taken. For me, it is also a reminder to protect our children because they are the ones who will be leading the future, children are sacred and we need to keep them safe because we pass down our traditions to them.
On the Charity
I would like to donate to the “Indian Residential School Survivors Society.” I chose to donate to them because they have such a wide variety of resources/services, this includes counselling, health support, cultural support, intergenerational trauma support and so much more. They have been providing services for over 20 years towards residential school survivors and they have a crisis line 24/7 at (1-800-721-0066) too. I also noticed that they post articles that spread awareness and educate people on residential schools and important issues going on in our communities.
