UPDATE: With the rapidly evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, we have made a couple of adjustments to our Green Shirt Day Initiative. We will now be closing website ordering as of this Friday March 20th at 10am, the factories are now operating at skeleton staff and reduced hours, so we want to ensure that the shirts get into production before any further changes occur. In addition, North Toronto Arena is now closed due to COVID-19, so all pick ups will be at Majer Hockey, or you can opt to have the shirts delivered directly to you.
In order to create awareness, we encourage you to post photos of you wearing your green shirts on social media using the hashtags on the shirt: #LoganBouletEffect #GreenShirtDay #HumboldtStrong #BeInspired. You can also tag North Toronto on our Social Media streams:
Green Shirt Day is in honour of the Logan Boulet Effect, in support of organ donor awareness and registration across Canada.
On April 6, 2018, Canadians were heartbroken to hear the news of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. Of the 29 passengers, sixteen lost their lives and thirteen will all bear physical and emotional scars for life.
On April 7, 2018, Humboldt Broncos defenceman, Logan Boulet succumbed to his injuries, his parents, Bernadine and Toby Boulet offered to donate his organs so that six lives could live on. They did so, because Logan told his parents, he was registering as an organ donor, and that he was inspired by his coach and mentor Ric Suggitt. Ric passed on June 27th, 2017 and was also an organ donor and saved 6 lives.
What happened following this selfless act, is nothing less than miraculous and became known across Canada as the “Logan Boulet Effect”.
As news spread of the organ donation, by this young hockey player, over 100,000 people registered to become organ donors in the days and weeks that followed. To date this is the largest number of Canadians registering to become organ donors in Canadian History due to one event – one person.
