#JerseysForHumboldt Tomorrow

Tomorrow is jersey day across the country.


Everyone is encouraged to wear a sports jersey, or the colours green and gold, to show support for Humboldt.


The event started out as an idea from a group of self-described hockey moms in British Columbia, with the purpose of showing support for everyone affected by the collision.


The group is encouraging everyone to take a picture of yourself with the jersey on, and post it to social media using #JerseysForHumboldt.


Other ways that people have shown support since the crash on Friday evening include leaving their hockey sticks outside their door, which started when a Manitoba-based sports caster posted a picture on social media.


The Go Fund Me page, which is now the third highest campaign ever on the site, has surpassed $8M.
