Wrapping first responders in compassion.
Quilts for Everyday Heroes is an organization that appreciates and recognizes first responders for putting themselves into emotionally challenging and dangerous situations daily. We hope to wrap first responders who are struggling with mental health in a handmade quilt to let them know that we are aware of the struggle that comes from their determination to make our world a safe place.
With gratitude, mutual respect, and reciprocity, we acknowledge the ancestral home, culture, and oral teachings of the Treaty 7 signatories which includes the Siksika Nation, Kainai Nation, the Iethka Stoney Nakoda nation, consisting of the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Good Stoney Bands, and the people of the Tsuut'ina Nation. We also recognize the Metis people of Alberta Region 3 who call Treaty 7 their home.
