One Day’s Pay – Truth Then Reconciliation
On the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation give one day’s pay to support Indigenous projects, movements, organizations and nations.
On Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th, 2021, One Day’s Pay launched a grassroots campaign to mobilize settlers to meaningfully recognize and commemorate the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, and to honour their survivors, their families and communities.
Guided by The Circle on Philanthropy, an Indigenous women-led organization that works to mobilize the settler philanthropic sector to move funds to Indigenous-led projects, movements, organizations and nations, Canadians responded to One Day’s Pay’s invitation to meaningfully act: Raising almost half a million dollars for The Orange Shirt Society and Indian Residential School Survivors Society. In year two, One Day’s Pay raised one quarter of a million dollars for Indigenous Watchdog, Anishnawbe Health Foundation, Indigenous Perspectives Society and The Orange Shirt Society.
