The Moose Hide Campaign patches and cards are assembled by a team of Indigenous women on Vancouver Island. Each card is created with the heart-felt wish for a future where men and boys honour, protect and care for the woman and girls in their lives.
Your donation will go towards the production of Moose Hide cards and pins to spread awareness of the campaign. The moose hides are purchased from moose traditionally harvested for food, or from moose killed accidentally on highways and roads.
By donating to help the production of Moose Hide cards, you are helping to spread awareness of domestic and gender based violence in Canada. Since 2011 we've distributed over two million cards! Help us reach our next goal of 10,000,000 cards.
Help our future generations of men learn to honour, love and respect the women and girls in their lives.
Experience tells us that learning values and perceptions happen at a very early age. When done in an open, ethical and non-judgmental space, education can be a powerful platform for students to examine their own biases and those of their family and community. The Moose Hide Learning Journey is designed to support teachers in offering just such a learning environment while providing students with opportunities to explore alternative values and perspectives that respect and honour women and children.
Your donation supports the development of the Moose Hide K-12 Learning Platform as an open-source resource for teachers across the country.
The Ten Men Challenge is an project designed to engage young men and encourage them to pledge to stand up against violence towards women and children. It is a practical example of Reconciliation in Action and will promote and facilitate the growth of the Moose Hide Campaign in secondary schools across the country.
With your help secondary schools across Canada will be able to use the promotional video and tool-kit developed during the April 2017 pilot project to help start their own Ten-Men Challenge projects.
The goal of the Safe Space, Safe Place Initiative is to end all forms of violence towards women on University campuses by creating safe spaces and safe places; and by fostering reconciliation through dialogue, healing, and mutual understanding.
Your donation will support and help bring these two important initiatives to Secondary and Post-Secondary institutions across Canada.
