The 33-year-old comedian will open the very first Summit Ice pop-up store in Vancouver. Summit Ice is a not-for-profit apparel company created to raise awareness of the Holocaust. “Vancouver, big news!” Fielder wrote on Twitter. “We’re opening our first Summit Ice pop-up shop this Sunday at 138 E Broadway.”

Summit Ice’s website says “On March 26, 2017, Summit Ice Apparel founder Nathan Fielder will return to his hometown of Vancouver, BC to donate $150,000 USD of Summit Ice profits to the board of the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre, an acclaimed teaching museum devoted to Holocaust based anti-racism education.”

“Donations will also be accepted in exchange for other Summit Ice clothing while supplies last,” the website continues.

Fielder founded Summit Ice Apparel in 2015 after learning his favourite jacket company, the Vancouver-based Taiga, had published a tribute to Holocaust denier Doug Collins in their winter catalogue. Fielder and Summit Ice will challenge Taiga by encouraging Vancouver residents to trade in any Taiga jacket they own for a free Summit Ice soft-shell jacket and “Deny Nothing” pin.
