Have a Heart Day

(February 14th) 

Have a Heart Day is a day we ask people to have a heart towards Indigenous children. To give them the same opportunities of growing up like any other kid without having to worry about their food security, home, education, etc. This day is used to raise awareness but also take individual actions by writing an action that you would want to the government to take to better the lives of Indigenous children.
