Leaders are incredibly pleased with the results of their campaign to bring awareness to September 30,
2021 and the FIRST RECONCILIATION DAY."Shane Gottfriedson, Joe Quewezance and Mitch Shuter own a Tim Hortons not far from the site where the remains of 215 children were found and in the wake of that discovery they, along with other Indigenous Tim Hortons restaurant owners and Indigenous leaders, came up with a way to help the survivors of those institutions: orange sprinkle doughnuts.

The doughnuts first went on sale on Sept. 30, which was Orange Shirt Day, and were available for a full week with 100 per cent of the retail price (excluding taxes) being donated to the Orange Shirt Society and the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. In all, $1.6 million was raised."
