On June 30, 2021, a fire destroyed the community of Lytton, BC.

We ran from the flames, and in a matter of minutes, we lost our homes, our village, and our lives as we knew them. Our community members are still scattered and struggling. Please take the time to read our stories and share your support in any way that you can.

Donate a hat
to a Lytton evacuee

An offer of love and support: donate a handmade winter hat to someone who lost their home. For each donation, we’ll choose an evacuee via random draw and Meghan will knit a personalised hat just for them.
