After the gruesome discovery of the bodies of 215 children were found buried at the former Residential School in Kamloops, BC my heart is broken for the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation community and all of our First Nation's people. To do my part to help spread awareness and provide support I have created a decal for vehicles (or wherever you may want to display your support). This decal is by donation only (choose your donation amount from drop box option), all money received from this will be donated to the Indian Residential School Surivors Society (www.irsss.ca) - see below for more info on the society.
The feather is available with "215" cut out of the decal to signify the number of children initially found that has brought to light this senseless tragedy and made the world aware. Sadly, as more time passes we learn that number is just a small drop in a bucket of the actual numbers of lives lost and that people do not feel as comfortable recognizing the "215"; therefore, a solid feather decal is also available.
I will not be profiting off of these decals. Part of my donation to the IRSSS includes the materials and time to create the decals, there will be a small fee for covering the cost of mailing only (please do not select local pick up for these decals - they can be found locally at The Vibe downtown Vernon 2908 30th Ave). Once order fulfillment is completed and you have received a shipping confirmation email decal will be delivered to post office within 24 hours for mailing. **Please note: a.maze.designs is on vacation July 14th through 20th - any orders received during this time will not be processed until after the 20th. Thank you! **
Decals have been created in 3 different colours of orange and you can request a specific shade; however, please note that the availability of colours may vary and if I am unable to provide the colour selected it will be substituted with another.
- Decal measures 4" x 1.75"
- Permanent vinyl
*colours may vary due to differences in monitors settings/resolutions*

The Indian Residential School Survivors Society is a British Columbia-based organization that has been providing services to residential school survivors for over 20 years.
