White Poppies are for a culture of peace
This Year Wear a White Poppy...

...Because Remembering is Important,
But it Isn't Enough


We can provide White Peace Poppies in Canada. Do take a look at our Buy or Make Poppies page on depots around Vancouver and how to make your own

In 2016, we are once again offering subsidized poppies for use in elementary and secondary school classrooms. This is made possible by generous supporters and a 2014 Ed May Social Justice Grant from the BCTF. Teachers also helped us assemble classroom materials

We started wearing handmade white poppies several years ago.  For us, wearing both red and white poppies is a way of saying "Remember the fallen, including civilians, and work for peace".  We have had many meaningful conversations with strangers that started with "What's the white poppy for?".

    In 1934 the first campaign to distribute white poppies for peace was launched.  79 years later, the world has seen over 300 wars, and the killing of more than 200 million people.  Let's work to make peace their memorial.
