The Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Ribbon Society today launched its redeveloped website, at www.memorialribbon.org. Fully bilingual, the site is dedicated to remembering all Police and Peace Officers in Canada who have died while serving their communities.
The Society’s blue and black Memorial Ribbon has become recognized across Canada as the national symbol of mourning for Police and Peace Officers. The purpose of the Society, through its website, is to raise funds through donations and the sale of related merchandise so that the Society can continue its mission of assisting grieving families, helping to establish memorials and monuments, and providing scholarships to the children of fallen Police and Peace Officers.
The new site has been designed to be mobile-friendly and easier to navigate, and to make it easier for individuals to donate to the Society through www.CanadaHelps.org and to shop for Memorial Ribbon merchandise. The site also features improved email newsletter capabilities, allowing the Society to inform subscribers about line of duty deaths and other news and events in a more timely manner.
The Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Ribbon Society Society is also active on Twitter (http://twitter.com/RibbonSociety) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Police-Peace-Officers-Memorial-Ribbon-Society-144078912311609).
