Healthcare professionals are the heroes that don’t wear capes. And right now, during the COVID-19 global health crisis, they’re working harder than ever. Many of them are working days without relief and are putting their own lives at risk to save others.
No words can describe how thankful we are for the doctors, nurses, and others that sacrifice their time. But there are a couple of ways we can help them and our Canadian communities. The best way is to isolate, which lowers the risk of spreading the coronavirus to others. The fewer people who need to go to the hospital, the less overwhelmed our healthcare system will feel. Another way to help out is to donate.
Two Canadian designers have teamed up to create t-shirts honouring three prominent women working in public health.
The collection features three different t-shirts, each with artwork that celebrates Canadian public health heroines of the COVID-19 outbreak: Dr. Bonnie Henry, Chief Medical Officer of British Columbia; Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Albert; and Dr. Theresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada.
All of the net proceeds will go towards providing food security.
The cost of each t-shirt, made from 100% Airlume, is $45 plus taxes and shipping. Proceeds will support organizations that give those who need it access to food like Greater Vancouver Food Bank (Vancouver, British Columbia), Fresh Routes (Calgary, Alberta), and Second Harvest (Toronto, Ontario).
Shop the t-shirts on www.sophiegrace.ca and www.madamepremier.com.
