1. April 7 is Green Shirt Day across Canada in honour of the Logan Boulet Effect. Logan Boulet died in the Humboldt bus crash last year. He was an organ donor and saved six lives and inspired 100,000 organ donor registrations across the country.
Since April 7 is a Sunday, schools and workplaces are being asked to wear green shirts on Monday, April 8, to show their support for national green shirt day. You can purchase the inaugural Green Shirt Day t-shirt here: https://greenshirtday.go.customprintcenter.ca/, or wear anything green. For more information on Green Shirt Day, you can visit https://greenshirtday.ca/.
On April 7 or 8, to honour Green Shirt Day, post a photo of yourself on social media wearing a green shirt.
Here is a draft tweet you can use:
TODAY is #GreenShirtDay! Show support for those who are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant by wearing your green shirt & if you're in #Ontario, register as an organ and tissue donor at www.BeADonor.ca #beadonor @TrilliumGift @greenshirtday
On April 7, the Toronto Sign will be lit green to honour Green Shirt Day. Here is a draft tweet you can use:
