In 2008, Hannah Taylor, Founder of the Ladybug Foundation, which works to support the homeless community, was invited by the Senate and all the Members of Parliment to Ottawa to launch Canada's first ever National Red Scarf Day on January 31st, 2008.
History was made in Ottawa on that day when all the Senate and Members of Parliment gave a standing ovation in support of the same cause on the same day. Together Ottawa and Canada showed their support by wearing Ladybug Foundation Red Scaves on January 31st.
