We Will Rise Again Tee Shirts

Raising Money to Support Front Line Healthcare During COVID-19

A new “We Will Rise Again” tee shirt has been designed to inspire hope and will be sold to support health care in Cape Breton. Last week, Anchored Ideas , City Print+ and Seaside Communications partnered to share a video reminding us that Cape Breton will rise again. They have partnered again to create this tee shirt in hopes of supporting health care in Cape Breton.

“We wanted to do something to celebrate the resiliency and spirit of Cape Bretoners, while giving back and saying thanks to our frontline healthcare workers for their dedication and heroism,” says Danielle Johnston, General Manager, City Print + and Partner, Anchored Ideas Ltd.

Thanks to the initiative, led by two local businesses, 100 per cent of the profits from the tee shirts will be going directly to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation’s Area of Greatest Need. “Donations to the Area of Greatest Need empower the Foundation to respond to urgent issues and new opportunities within our hospital,” said Rick McCarthy, Acting CEO of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation. “Community initiatives like this allow the Foundation and knowledgeable medical leaders and staff to direct these funds to the highest priority needs of the hospital, including COVID-19 support.”

The idea, which came about after nearly 400 people share the video created by the three businesses, was to enable community to give back and share in Cape Breton’s pride. About $15 will go back from each tee shirt sold and with all money raised supporting the Area of Greatest Need, a fund which provides the maximum flexibility in making an immediate impact when and where the need is greatest, the tee shirts can support front-line staff as needed.

The tee-shirts, sold for $20 (including taxes and delivery within the CBRM) will be available for purchase online as of today and will be delivered by Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation staff, as a no-contact delivery. To buy a shirt or to gift one to family, friends, or those who need their spirits lifted, we the community is encouraged to visit www.cbgivewhereyoulive.ca/we-will-rise-again and a purchased shirt will be delivered to any address in the CBRM after April 20th.

Shirts will be delivered anywhere in the CBRM. If looking for delivery outside of CBRM, an additional delivery fee will apply and the customer will be called to discuss details. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 902-567-7752 or email us at Foundation.CB@nshealth.ca
