A COMMUNITY PROJECT BY ALL OUT GRAPHICS & DESIGN LTD
The Battlefords experienced significant loss and tragedy in 2018 with 8 deaths by suicide in 7 weeks. Through the losses, we learned that suicide is not a respecter of age. Five of the losses were youth under the age of 22 and three were senior citizens over the age of 55. Allysa Woodrow asked the question “what if we could connect the bookend generations” She came to us with this question and with teaming up with her we created the Better Together T-Shirt Initiative. We helped connect over 200 seniors/teens/kids by dressing them in cool “better together” t-shirts and created “Together Tuesday” events. Every Tuesday, participants looked for their t-shirt logo matches, begun to build friendships, and worked together on deeper community connections. The project went viral. Over 5000 t-shirts can now be found within the Battlefords and surrounding areas.
Join us and get your community involved…The outcomes – mutual understandings, improved feelings of well- being, improved feelings of well-being, decreased loneliness, satisfaction from sharing knowledge, experience, and enhanced social cohesion.
