WSS Charity Fundraiser

In support of Ontario Aboriginal HIV|AIDS Strategy and 2-Spirited People of the 1st Nations

Earlier this year, WSS was asked by CATIE to create a custom earring for the social campaign #faceHIVnofear to bring more awareness to preventative HIV options available today, such as PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and HIV treatment as prevention. This brought to fruition the WSS Joined Feather Earring in Red; two feather shapes come together as one, a form that resembles the iconic and emblematic red ribbon – a symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV.

Despite the availability of these reliable preventative options there are startling statistics, particularly for communities at high risk for HIV. The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that 14% of new infections in Canada are among Indigenous People and a CDC study in 2021 found that just over 40% of Trans Women were living with HIV. Through the #faceHIVnofear campaign we can increase awareness for the prevention of HIV in our communities.

WSS is offering 150 units of earrings, brooches and necklaces, available here and now, with 100% of all sales benefitting two organizations: Ontario Aboriginal HIV|AIDS Strategy and 2-Spirited People of the 1st Nations. These are two incredible groups that bring support to at-risk communities, providing programs on HIV prevention, support, harm reduction, rapid testing pop-ups, and awareness.
