Halifax Social Enterprise creates Stay the Blazes Home CharITY T-shirts, to helps food banks, help those on the front line while still living under the poverty line during COVID-19.
They say, “charITY starts at home!”
After hearing the Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil’s message telling people to “Stay the Blazes Home,” Jessica Bowden M.S.M founder of =ITY (pronounce equality) Inspiring Today’s Youth Society and Teens Now Talk (TNT) says, the Stay the Blazes Home and Stay Calm & Stay Home T-shirts was a must for their CharITY T’s collection.

COVID-19 has put a huge strain on our already, overstressed families and food banks, and we were looking for a way to help them.
So, as soon as we heard the phrase, “Stay the Blazes Home”, we knew it will be a T-shirt packed with the opportunITY to help interrupt POVERTY while raising the safety awareness,” Bowden says.

A message from Jessica Bowden M.S.M.
“During these unpretending times, we need to think of more than just ourselves,” Bowden says. It’s hard not to stress and panic. Just breathe, be thankful and then think of someone who has less than you and how you can help.
“Today, is the beginning of a new tomorrow,” says Jessica Bowden M.S.M.
COVID-19 closed Bowden’s business doors but not the innovative online windows of opportunities to continue directly helping others in the communities.
I have no idea what tomorrow will bring,” says Bowden with 100% of our booked major youth and community-driven Seminars, Community Forums, Summer Camps, XPO’s to National events NOW canceled or postponed to 2021.
Today we give thanks, to ALL our front-line workers, then look at how we can help others less fortunate.
For if we are truly in this together, we need to show it and do our part. Government of Canada site – Wash your Hands
One thing COVID-19 does not care about is how rich or poor you are, how far you run from the city, how stocked your shelves are, your age, race or sexuality….
…. So yes, Stay the Blazes Home and give hope a chance.
