What are the 12 Daze of Giving?
The 12 Daze of Giving are twelve consecutive days of small acts of giving to local non-profits organizations in the community. Here at Farmer Jane, we have 11 store locations and a head office across Regina, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg, which equates conveniently to 12 different locations. Each Farmer Jane location, as a team came together to select a charity of choice to which they wanted to donate to for their select day on the 12 Daze of Giving calendar. This donation (dollar amount or value amount) goes to a community initiative/charity of choice in hopes to spread kindness and create a positive impact.
Today on the second day on the 12 Daze of Giving Calendar Farmer Jane Grant Park will be donating to Bear Clan Patrol. This community initiative could not be done alone. With the support of our friends at BZAM Cannabis, we were able to donate money to the charity.
Bear Clan Patrol came about as a result of the ongoing need to assume our traditional responsibility to provide security to our Aboriginal community. Given that the Aboriginal population in Winnipeg is anywhere from 60,000 to 80,000, and is heavily concentrated in certain inner-city neighborhoods, it was felt that the community must organize to keep the peace and to assist community members. The concept behind the patrol, then, is community people working with the community to provide personal security in the inner city in a non-threatening, non-violent, and supportive way.
Bear Clan Patrol’s mission is to provide restoration and maintenance of harmony within the community by promoting and providing safety, conflict resolution, mobile witnessing and crime prevention, maintaining a visible presence on the streets, and providing an early response to situations. Here at Farmer Jane, we support this mission.

As Simon Senik says, “Don’t give to get, give to inspire others to give.” If we all need to come together to do our part, however big or small we can create a lasting impact.
