Toronto – February 8, 2023 – This Valentine’s Day, lend your heart to a very important cause: Indigenous kids who deserve the very best care. Have a Heart Day was created by the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada to encourage us to remember those kids who are growing up far from their homes, and who cannot access a proper school and adequate health services. It also urges us to take action.
Have a Heart Day is a child and youth-led reconciliation event that brings together caring Canadians to help ensure First Nations children have the opportunity to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and be proud of who they are.
Head to First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada for ideas on how you can honour the day or find local events in your community. Follow the hashtag #HaveaHeartDay on social media to see how communities across Canada are recognizing the day!
