7 voices helping 7 causes, one T‑shirt at a time.

watch full campaign

2020 is a year that we will remember for having completely changed our reality. Over the past months, we have witnessed powerful societal changes of historic proportions, and it is only the beginning. Today, more than ever, it is important to speak up, loudly and proudly, in support of those values that define us. That is why we are thrilled to introduce this new and exciting initiative through our REALLY YOU campaign.

We invited seven Canadian ambassadors to share their voices and help women “wear their own”, proudly and beautifully. In collaboration with the Reitmans design team, each ambassador created her own personal, artistic T-shirt design in support of seven great charities that help promote values of education, empowerment, inclusion and diversity.

Help us reach our goal of raising $70,000 to support these great charities. For each T-shirt sold online and in store between August 17 to September 27, 2020, Reitmans will donate $5 to these great causes, up to a maximum of $10,000 for each cause. UPDATE: Thanks to your support, we reached our goal! Our inspiring T-shirts are still available for you to wear proudly and to share your voice. Get yours today, online or in-store.
