#PutYourSticksOut is a trending hashtag and Canadians coast-to-coast are answering the call to leave their hockey sticks out on the porch as a sign of solidarity and support for the families of the tragic crash.
Quickly the gesture has spread to the front and back doors of homes across the country.

I am really struggling with the tragedy of the Humboldt Bronco crash. I don’t understand why it has hit me as hard as it has. I don’t know why 15 people that I have never met, and who have passed away have brought me so much sorrow, but I am sad. So. Very. Sad. So tonight, we found 15 sticks and put our sticks out to show, just for a moment, that these people who loved hockey as much as my family does are in our hearts. I can only hope that the families of those who have died, and those healing in hospital can feel the rest of the country holding them up in prayer. 💚💛 #prayersforhumboldt #humboldtstrong #15sticks #putyoursticksout #broncosstrong
The trend all started with Sports Broadcaster Brian Munz
The cause of the crash is currently under investigation and tragically the death toll has 15.
