We recently sent seed potatoes, various other vegetable seeds (radishes, beans, peas, lettuce, carrots, etc.) and gardening tools (forks, spade, rakes, shovels, hand tillers) to Webequie. Here are some photos:

SOUTHERN YOUTH IN MOTION II

We are excited to be hosting our Second Annual Southern Youth in Motion (SYiM) Showcase December 14 and 15! The SYiM Showcase will be held at Ryerson University, and we have invited 20 youth from Southern Ontario, and 20 youth from Northern Ontario to join us! 

 

Due to the high cost of flights for youth travelling from Northern Ontario (approximately $2,000 for a round-trip flight from a First Nations community to Thunder Bay), we are seeking your assistance with the northern travel costs. We have set the goal of $2,000, which will cover the cost of one youth's flight to Thunder Bay, and NSP will cover the cost of their flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto. 

 

If you would like to support the northern travel to Southern Youth in Motion, you can make a donation in the following ways:

It marks the “opening day of the giving season,” and is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to support their favourite causes!
