Every Child Matters. A few months back, our team connected to talk about ways we could authentically recognize and contribute to Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21), Orange Shirt Day and National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30).
Our extended pizzeria family includes a connection to amazing local artist Rande Cook (@leaf_modern_gallery), a Kwakwaka’wakw multimedia artist born in Alert Bay. Rande created a beautiful image for us. It honours the spirits of the children who attended residential schools; indigenous children in the centre, in a place of memory, honour and remembering.
We printed Rande’s image onto black tees, shared with our team and have some for sale too! $10 from the sale of each Every Child Matters shirt is donated to the Indian Residential Schools Survivor Society (IRSSS). Order online or pick up from your favourite pizzeria.
