The Plaid Shirt Society is a third-party fundraising group with a mandate to support not-for-profit organizations which place importance on building strong communities, pushing the boundaries of social awareness and involvement, and which value individualism, communication and positive thinking to attain their goals. PSS was founded in 2010 by Erin Klassen, Kurtis Robinson, and Erik von Stackelberg in memory of Nick Klassen.

This year marks eight years since our brother and friend Nick Klassen died suddenly from the H1N1 virus, and the seventh year we're raising funds for a worthy charity in his honour.

Usually we host a big event in Toronto, but this year we're trying an online fundraiser instead and we need your support. We know a lot of people, and if everyone we know donated even $5 this cause, we'd reach our goal of $2,000 in no time at all. No donation is too small!

Our charity this year is Griffin Centre's reachOUT program.

reachOUT is a creative, inclusive & accessible program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, gender nonconforming and queer (LGBTTGNCQ) people in the Greater Toronto Area. They recognize the needs of youth and adults who experience multiple oppressions and work to create spaces with and for people who are traditionally excluded from mainstream services, including people of colour, trans, two-spirit and gender nonconforming people, and disabled people. They are committed to social justice, community building, education and advocacy to increase access, visibility and to strengthen communities. 


Your $$$ will go towards supporting the following work:

  • Individual and family counselling for youth 12-18
  • Consultation and training to service providers and external agencies
  • Accessible workshops
  • Drop-in groups
  • Outreach services
  • Advocacy
  • Arts programming
  • Sports and recreational activities

We're requesting your donation of $5 - $50. Please help in whatever way you can!

Please note that your donations will be collected by Erin Klassen through her personal account but that 100% of the $$$ raised will be donated to The Griffin Centre's reachOUT program at the end of the campaign. We will post a receipt of the funds donated on our facebook page on December 1, 2017. Follow us here:
