      She's the voice of calm helping you weather the storm through her daily updates, and now you can give her the props she deserves--plus give to charity--by sporting a new limited-edition T-shirt.

      Calgary-based fashion brands SophieGrace and Madame Premier have collaborated on a limited-edition T-shirt emblazoned with a stylized image of Dr. Bonnie Henry, chief medical officer of British Columbia. The portrait is by Calgary artist Mandy Sobo.

      Henry has attracted praise throughout the crisis, even spawning a social-media "Bonnie Henry Fan Club", where followers have called her "erudite, truthful, candid", and "an incredible leader and absolute badass".

      She's one of three Canadian public health heroines they're honouring with a new collection of Ts. Fixtures on the nightly news, Canada's public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam (who also has B.C. ties) and Alberta's chief medical officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw also adorn the series.

      The Ts sell for $45 plus taxes and shipping, with all net proceeds donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, Calgary's Fresh Routes, and Toronto's Second Harvest.

      “Both of our brands are focused on honouring women and celebrating their success. Seeing these incredible women of science help guide and calm us through these unprecedented times inspired us to do something to help,” said Emma May, founder of Sophie Grace.

      Calgary's Stobo (@badportraits) made the files available to all who wanted to pay homage to the women leading us through the outbreak.

      The T-shirts are made from Airlume-combed and ring-spun cotton and sell via www.sophiegrace.ca/ and www.madamepremier.com/.
