Selling plants to support all those in recovery
September is the National Recovery Month. In 2020, Isuarsivik wanted to promote this important movement by showing support to all those in recovery. And because recovery is a growing process, Isuarsivik organized a plant sale.
From September 1 to 15, people living in Kuujjuaq and Puvirnituq had the opportunity to pre-order a 3-inch plant for only $40.00 to help the growth of recovery and to make a difference for Isuarsivik’s development projects. For each purchase, $25.00 was considered as a direct donation to the Centre. A total of $1,725 was raised and more than 80 people are now enjoying a new addition to their home. Among them, 10 were Isuarsivik’s former guests. They were surprised by a plant that shows support to their recovery journey, a generous donation from 10 individuals who intentionally bought a plant to be offered to one of our former guests.
We are amazed by the support we received from all corners of the region to all those in recovery. We want to thank Saqijuq for having promoted this new initiative and distributed the plants in Puvirnituq. A special thanks to the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services and the Northern Village of Umiujaq who bought 20 and 10 plants respectively to distribute within their organization and community to raise awareness.
This is what we call a simple initiative with major impact.
