March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = Pi = π
March 14th is also Affirm United’s National Affirming PIE Day. Public, Intentional, and Explicit are the standards to which we hold ourselves when we become Affirming, Welcoming, and Inclusive communities! Affirm United founded this day as an official way to invite people across Canada to show what it means to be inclusive.
You are invited to participate in a PIE DAY pie auction! Get your appetites ready to bid on delicious homemade or high-quality bakery pies in an online silent auction March 5-11 (more information coming). All the funds raised will be shared between SSUC and CHEW, an Edmonton agency doing vital work with LGBTQ2S+ youth and young adults. Read more about CHEW’s work here.
The online auction starts FRIDAY, March 6th at 3pm and closes on Thursday, March 11th at 3pm. Get your appetites ready to bid on delicious pies: lemon meringue, apple, saskatoon, chocolate, gluten free pecan and more!
