There is a terrific local option for Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day on Feb. 24 and for a great cause too.
Angela’s Boutique in Ladner Village is selling “Respect” T-shirts, designed by Haisla-Heiltsuk First Nation artist Mervin Windsor. They sell for $20 and come in adult and youth sizes. All proceeds will be donated to Indigenous-focused anti-violence organizations.
Sales have been brisk since the first shipment of T-shirts arrived at the store early last week. More are on the way.
Angela’s also brought in Windsor designed T-shirts for Orange Shirt Day back in September that honours and recognizes Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada. Those shirts promptly sold out.
Angela’s Boutique is a located at the corner of Delta and Bridge Streets.
