do good.


Research shows that a mindfulness or meditation practice cultivates compassion and empathy for others. 

We are incredibly grateful for having been introduced to practices that make us more resilient – unshakeable. We wouldn't be where we are without them and it's super important that we use our opportunity to give back. 

Every time you purchase a Shady Ape t-shirt, we donate to a local charity. Little Warriors is our first Edmonton-based charity:


Little Warriors 


Little Warriors is a national, charitable organization committed to the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse.  

Little Warriors provides:

  • Treatment through the Be Brave Ranch for children between 8 and 12 who have been sexually abused

  • A workshop called Prevent It! that educates adults on how to take action to stop child sexual abuse

You purchase an unshakeable shirt, we donate 15% of sales to Little Warriors. That simple.

why we chose Little Warriors.

Because no child should have to suffer due to the touch of another person. We should never have to worry about our children and who they spend time with. Supporting Little Warriors brings us one step closer to reducing the prevalence of sexual interference and gets help to those who need it.

Little Warriors does incredible work. The Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch is the only treatment centre of it’s kind in Canada - providing long-term, holistic treatment that considers mind, body, and spirit. They work to give children and families who have been impacted by childhood sexual abuse the tools and strategies they need to deal with their trauma so that they can rebuild their lives and build their RESILIENCE. We all experience trauma in one way or another. Meditation, mindfulness, supportive relationships, and doing the sticky, soul work can help up to become unshakable so that we are no longer entirely thrown off when life hurls lemons at us.
