So… We haven’t talked about Clean Your Green in awhile. I’ll be honest its because we kind of took a little break for awhile. With folks out gallivanting to cottages and generally with August brain we decided it was better to take a little time away.
But now that September has ambled back in its usual surprising fashion and the kids are back in the chains of education we’ve decided its time to get back to cleaning, fall style. Right now the campaign sits at $4,868.89 over halfway there but still not the $8000 we promised.
I would say we keep our word, but I think its probably more likely that we’re just stubborn. Either way we’re taking Clean Your Green into territory never before travelled – The Fall.
Stay tuned, who said Fall couldn’t be fun too?
IBEX Payroll extends our profound respect and immeasurable gratitude to all the ancestors and keepers of the land on whose traditional territories our work takes place. We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. This land is sacred, historical, and significant.
Every time we acknowledge this truth, we have an invitation and an opportunity to reflect on the wrongs of the past, what we do in the present, and what we can do to continually honour the people whose lands and water we benefit from today.
This statement only acts as a first step in honouring the land we reside on and its peoples, and must be paired with education, understanding and informed action.
