Topic: Summer playlist fundraiser for First Nation Peoples in BC
hey team - if you've got a moment, I've got something to share. TW: residential schools, death
a few days ago, a mass grave was discovered at a former Indian Residential School in Kamloops, BC. the grave contained the bodies of 215 Indigenous children. it's a heartbreaking reminder of the atrocities that my country has committed against our Indigenous population and the generational trauma we've caused.
so my friends and I are trying to do our bit. we have an ongoing project where we release a new playlist every month. June is Indigenous History Month here. we're inviting everyone to add their favourite summer song, and for every song added, we will donate $5 to the Indian Residential School Survivor Society (IRSSS). https://linktr.ee/perfectplaylistproject The playlist will be closed on June 20.
if you've got a minute, I welcome you to add your dubious music taste to the playlist, and perhaps take a minute to learn about what the IRSSS does. reconciliation is ongoing work, and I hope that this small fundraiser can help contribute to it.
