This fundraiser is for the employees of T&T Supermarket in Mississauga, who endured a brutal racist attack. Watching this video was painful.
"I am Canadian" was one of the employees' defense to these hateful words.
I am starting this fundraiser to raise tips for the store employees as a thank you for their hard work through this pandemic, trying to keep everyone safe. It has been an exhausting and difficult time for all of us, in different ways. Let's continue to keep ourselves and others safe because this is what part of being Canadian is all about.
Please note that all donations made to this GoFundMe are considered to be personal gifts to the T&T store team.
I have been in contact with T&T's management team and have received their approval for this campaign. They will be assisting me with dispersing the funds to the store employees. I do not work for T&T but have shopped at their stores.
Logistics update: I will be withdrawing the funds into my own bank account and then writing a cheque to "Uncle Lawrence" and delivering it in person!
