The "Thin Line" Beanie Collection features black double brim knit beanies with a "Thin Line" in a colour coordinating with various first responder or designations and an XL faux fur pom pom. $10 CDN from the sale of each Thin Line Beanie & $5 CDN from the sale of each Thin Line Earwarmer will be donated to either Toronto Beyond the Blue (Thin Blue Line) or #ivegotyourback911 (all other Thin Line colours) in support of mental health programs and services for first responders and their families in Ontario, Canada.
This collection and donations are so close to my heart. I am a social worker in child welfare, my husband is a police officer with Toronto Police Service, and my father is a retired police inspector. Our first responders have extremely difficult jobs and more often than not, take care of others over themselves. Too many first responders struggle with the mental health consequences of both first hand and vicarious (secondary) trauma, too often resulting in suicide. I am so happy to donate to these two causes to ensure that first responders and their families receive the mental health supports they need.
