On the first Monday of every month, 5% of our sales from all cafe locations is donated to an organization that benefits folks in our community. Additional, we offer an online donation option for the whole month on our online store.
For the month of July our donations will be going to Victoria Orange Shirt Day.
Orange Shirt Day is an annual national event that is held on September 30th in Canada. It is a day to honour Residential School survivors and their families, and to remember those that never made it home"
Residential school survivor Eddy Charlie and friend Kristin Spray initiated Victoria Orange Shirt Day in 2015 while attending the Indigenous Studies program at Camosun College. After graduating in 2017 they continued to recognize the sacrifices of residential school survivors by bringing the event to the City of Victoria."
