Please join us in making memory flags in honour of our loved ones.
We aim to create 303 flags in honour of the 303 lives lost to overdose in Toronto in 2017.
On International Overdose Awareness Day (August 31st), we will display these flags in Nathan Phillips Square in a ceremony of remembrance.
By creating these flags across Canada, we are sending Love and Light to those who have passed due to substance use disorders, and to those who are still struggling. We want to raise awareness of how many of our loved one the overdose crisis is taking, and to strengthen the hope that there will be an end.
This project draws from the Tibetan tradition of making prayer flags, which are used to create harmony with all of the elements, as well as harmony within our physical selves and our environment.
All supplies provided, no cost
Thursday, August 30th, 10am to 1pm
Those who cannot attend in person should email their loved one’s name to email@example.com so that we can create a flag in their honour on your behalf.
