Please consider supporting the project at our GoFundMe.

Funds to be used for:

  • The purchase of flowers of on-site offerings.

    One stem of Chrysanthemum flowers is placed per site and purchased from local florist 藝濃軒 (Arts & Florist), a respectful gesture of greeting at each headstone visited, prior to touching or brushing off dirt from the headstones, and doing a transcription of information by hand.

  • Digital transcription and analysis (paid per hour of work)
  • Data processing to update the website (paid per hour of work).

For each milestone of $5000 funding reached, we anticipate processing another 150-200 sites for the Beechmount Cemetery location. This is specifically due to the proximity of the sites to each other in the designated “Chinese Section” of the cemetery, and that a version of the shortlisted names and site locations list is readily prepared.

If you would like to consider a version of this project to be completed for any cemetery in Canada (or globally), please reach out and start a conversation with us.
