Donation to the Indian Residential School Society + Legacy of Hope Foundation
For the months of June + July we will be taking donations for the Indian Residential School Society + Legacy of Hope Foundation. We will split the donation dollars equally at the end of July to each organization.
The Indian Residential School Survivor Society provides physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual growth, development, and healing through culturally-based values and guiding principles for the Survivors, Families, and Communities affected by Residential Schools. The Society assists First Nation Peoples to recognize and be holistically empowered from the primary and generational effect of the Residential Schools by supporting research, education, awareness, partnerships, and advocating for justice and healing. The Society assists Survivors with counselling, court support, information, referrals, workshops, and more.
The Legacy of Hope Foundation is a national Indigenous charitable organization with the mandate to educate and create awareness and understanding about the Residential School System, including the intergenerational impacts such as the removal of generations of Indigenous children from their families, including the Sixties Scoop, the post-traumatic stress disorders that many First Nations, Inuit, and Metis continue to experience, all while trying to address racism, foster empathy and understanding and inspire action to improve the situation of Indigenous Peoples today. The LHF supports the ongoing healing process of Residential School Survivors, and their families and seeks their input on projects that honour them.
Thank you for showing your support of this important work.
