The Tragically Hip's 'Courage' Masks Raise $40K For Charity
The Tragically Hip has donated $40,000 to the Unison Benevolent Fund, which provides counselling and emergency relief services to those in the Canadian music community.
The cash comes from sales of their Courage masks.
“We want to thank to all of you who have bought Courage masks to support the Unison Benevolent Fund,” the band said, in a release. “With your help, we have raised over $40,000 so far to provide ongoing emergency financial relief for musicians and crew members during the COVID pandemic.
“Until we are through this, please continue to follow the guidance of public health officials. Stay safe, wear a mask and continue to support the Unison Benevolent Fund.”
The Hip announced the sale of the $15 reusable cloth masks – named for the band’s single from the 1992 album Fully Completely – last August.

Following the success of the first-ever CareNeverStops 50/50 Lottery, we are pleased to announce a new monthly lottery in support of Grand River Hospital. Every month in 2021, you can get the chance to win cash and prizes by playing the 50/50 lottery! Proceeds support a different area of care at Grand River Hospital each month. In January, we’re playing to support mental health care. After a year where most of us faced many new stressors, there are many people in our community are in need of mental health care. Play the 50/50 lottery to support mental health care in our community. Play for care. It’s win-win.
This year has been challenging for our community. We haven’t been able to gather, socialize and celebrate like we’re used to. More time spent indoors may be making us feel a little more isolated from our community. So, we’re reimagining how we experience and enjoy the winter season. Reimagine Winter offers activities, attractions and programs that give community members the outlet they need during these challenging times. Kitchener is a vibrant and resilient community, and the winter season is still ours to enjoy safely. Let’s reimagine it.
