Student Design Gallery (YFR Campaign)

As part of our #YFR project, students in Pikangikum and Markham created special designs that art students at Markham District High School screen printed by hand on t-shirts and tote bags.


The t-shirts and totes are available to purchase, with all money going towards the purchase of baby items (baby food, baby formula and diapers) to support families in need of these items in Pikangikum (a need identified by our YFR partners there). As is the case for many remote First Nations communities, the cost for these items (already costly to buy in the GTA) is often that much more expensive to purchase in isolated First Nations communities.

To learn more about this aspect of our project please check out our video!

Please look for the design on the item that you purchased below and read the message that the artist and students involved in the YFR project in both communities have collaboratively authored and would like to share with you about it:


**T-shirt/Tote bag care instructions: Please place a tea towel over the image and iron over top when you take it home. This will help to ensure that the image sets really well on your item. Then wash and dry as normal (we recommend turning the item inside out). Thank you for supporting YFR!
