Along with this charming photo, we received a lovely letter from True North Aid:

We saw, first-hand, the great need and the relief and thankfulness on the faces of those who received help.  Food provisions on this remote First Nations reserve are extremely expensive and many families struggle just to make ends meet every week.  It was such a privilege to be delivering boxes of food and supplies door to door – representing benevolent donors like yourselves, through True North Aid’s shipment!  I wish you could have seen, in person, the thankfulness on the faces of the many families we visited!  I have enclosed a couple of photos of the distribution.

So, again, please accept our sincere thanks for your caring part in making Christmas 2011 a special one in Attawapiskat!

Thanks so much for helping us, True North Aid, Torontonian volunteers and donors, xpace, the amazing cleaning staff at the Toronto Park Hyatt, and Six Nations! We couldn’t have done it without your support.

But there’s more work to be done.

We’re still working on our next initiative in support of Attawapiskat, but please check back for an announcement soon.

Thank you, everyone!
