On October 5th 2019, a fentanyl overdose took the life of my brother in-law Kyle Brown, who was taken from us way too soon. I have witnessed and continue to feel the grief and sorrow associated with this tragic loss. Therefore, this day holds a very special place in mine and my family’s heart! Now is the time to remember and the time to act! We teamed up with Multi Innovations and created T-shirts and hats to raise awareness and remember/honour Kyle. We raised $1370 and proceeds are being donated to KFLA Addictions and Mental Health Services in our hometown Kingston, ON. An organization that offers programs and services to those struggling from all type of mental illness and addictions. On August 31st we will wear our t-shirts and hats in hopes to spread awareness, speak openly/honestly about overdose/addiction, end the silence and proudly honour Kyle.
