How It All Unfolded: The Story

When you evacuate almost 90,000 people from a community, there’s a story behind each of them.

We have gathered a timeline of events, walking through the days before and after the evacuation. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Greg Halinda has shared a photo essay to tell the story when there are no words left. There are stories from those who stepped up when we needed them the most, and stories from those who had to flee. We have stories from heroes, and stories thanking them.

These are the stories that make #FortMcMurrayStrong


May The Fort Be With You

Sithera and Ashley are two nerds from Fort McMurray who enjoy everything from Star Wars to anime. Ashley is the creative force behind the design that appears on the t-shirts, while Sithera is organizing their efforts to ensure you get your shirt and the Canadian Red Cross receives your donation.

“May the Fort be with you” recognizes the devastation of May 4, 2016, but also reminds us that even through all the destruction, there is a piece of our hometown within ourselves, wherever we are.

We hope you enjoy these shirts, we hope you support the efforts to rebuild and we thank you for your support.
