“Much gratitude to all who came out and got on their mat with us for this great cause. All proceeds from ticket sales for this event went to RAVEN Trust’s #pulltogether campaign. 🌎 
Every dollar raised for this initiative goes towards the legal defence fund for First Nations’ fighting the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline at the Supreme Court.”

Root to Rise Fundraiser for RAVEN Trust's Pull Together campaign to #endTMX

Last month, on November 27, we proudly hosted Root to Rise, a yoga & meditation session. This edition was our first fundraiser, as part of RAVEN Trust's Pull Together, Week to End Trans Mountain, campaign.💫We're still brimming with gratitude from our amazing community, Patagonia Vancouver for opening up their space, Steve Fazzari and Dora Kamau for leading a grounding practice. 💛We raised just over $1,500 for RAVEN Trust, a not-for-profit organization that provides financial support for First Nations' legal challenges to the pipeline expansion.🌍Root Creative participated in the #pulltogether campaign to raise awareness and donations towards the supreme court challenge to the Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project.~The event we hosted is part of an ongoing initiative to raise $400,000.Donations to RAVEN Trust's legal defence fund can still be made here 👉 https://bit.ly/39lgv2B.🔗On December 16, the Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Coldwater Nations began hearings at the Federal Court of Appeal in Vancouver. The main areas of concern include: the insufficient level of consultation with First Nations, the devastating impacts on the orca population, and uncertainty over the behaviour of diluted bitumen WHEN there is an oil spill.🌍We are fortunate, and privileged to call Beautiful British Columbia our home, workplace and playground, and we stand with First Nations who are fighting to protect their land. In the spirit of giving this season, let's pull together to protect it for generations to come.📸 & 🎥: Brandon Artis Photography
