Call for Solidarity Support for the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal – Spirit Walk 2018
Hello Lovely People!
Summer seems to be here and of course what better time than to enjoy some of the amazing green space that the island and the season has to offer!
As we continue to build relationships and learn how to best work in solidarity with First Nations, Inuit and Metis Peoples, the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal’s Annual Spirit Walk is a great example of a number of ways that you can show your solidarity with Indigenous Peoples here.
On June 16th, I will participate in a 5 km community walk up Mount-Royal, in support of the women and children of the Native Women’s Shelter. I invite you to sign up, raise a bit of money within your circles and take a lovely walk on the mountain with us, and many other people doing the same.
Perhaps you can’t make it on June 16th, and in that case, there are still two more ways you can help:
I will be walking, and have set $800 as my goal for this year. If you can’t join us, you can still support me as a Spirit Walker. As a donor you are helping to keep the women and children of the Shelter safe and connected to their traditional healing practices. The funds raised will be put towards a summer Healing Retreat for the shelter residents.
Short on time and money? You can still show your solidarity by amplifying this event – forwarding this email and posting on social media. Please pass on this information to friends, family and co-workers who you think might show their support in one of these three ways.
So, again, you can support the women and children of the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal in these ways:
1. Sign up yourself to walk and to collect pledges, and join us on June 16th for the walk.
2. Support me as a Spirit Walker and pledge on my behalf. It’s super easy to do online, or I have pledge forms if you would like to donate in person.
3. Amplify this effort – share this with your family and friends and ask them to donate.
NWSM is a registered charity, and all donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt from the NWSM. Thank you in advance for your support.
If you have already made a pledge, thank you very much for your support. 🙂
Wishing you all a nourishing and beautiful summer with your friends and family.
peace with justice and hugs,
