Be Kind, Be Calm, Be Safe – our BC motto for 2020 and beyond.
The Gherkins are selling t shirts and totes to raise funds for our next refugee sponsorship.
The t-shirt features Dr. Henry’s “Be Kind, Be Calm, Be Safe” motto in English, Lekwungen, French, Chinese and Arabic. We believe Dr. Henry’s motto reflects a strong belief in the value and importance of care and compassion for our fellow humans.

Volunteers made this project possible
This striking design has been generously developed and donated to us by Noah Crowder, a student in the Pacific Design Academy in Victoria. To see more of Noah’s work please go to his website: noahcrowderdesigns.com
We also would like to offer thanks to the volunteers who ensured our translations were accurate: Joe Seward (Lekwungen), Marie Chemel-Lefebvre (French), Montaser Aljundy (Arabic), Rachel Yuen and Linda Yang (Chinese).
Price, fabric, sizes
We print on demand so offer a range of size options from toddler to 3XL.
Regular shirts are $25.
For $35 you can have an eco-friendly shirt of 100% North American cotton, ethically grown, and then woven, cut and produced all in Canada.
Totes are $20 and are made of heavy (12 oz) cotton canvas.
Delivery and pick up options
Shirts must be pre-ordered and can be picked up when ready at our “pick up days”, or you can chose to pay a bit extra to have a volunteer drop it at your Greater Victoria home. Outside Victoria? Watch this space or contact through the order site.
