“When You Help Someone You Help Everyone” is the theme of The Richmond Jets Pink Shirt Day 2022. The message encourages us to always be kind and think about how we can help someone in need. When you help someone we all benefit. The theme also draws inspiration from Marvel’s latest Spider-Man movie.
Today our diversity is becoming more visible than ever as people continue to embrace their cultures, identities, and true selves in more open and direct ways; making the need to help each other out and lift each other up. It’s more important than ever to have greater acceptance, respect, and inclusion for everyone. Hockey is for everyone and everyone is welcome at the Richmond Jets!
The Richmond Jets sold 620 pink t-shirts this year and raised $3420 for the Kids Help Phone. Kids Help Phone is a Canadian charitable organization that provides online and telephone counselling and volunteer-led, text-based support in English and French to youth across Canada. Kids Help Phone also provides information on how to access community support services for youth.
At the Richmond Jets, coaches are community leaders first and coach second. Our job is to help mentor our young players to be good citizens and active members of their community. Being involved in our community and supporting a cause like Pink Shirt Day is all part of that journey.
