Empower Youth: Help Build a Future of Unity & Peace

May 29, 2023

Dear Ally,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to you on behalf of HIP in partnership with Covenant of Nations, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering peace, understanding, and unity. I am reaching out to you today with a heartfelt request for your support in our upcoming initiative to bring together youth from the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Anishinaabe Nation.

While many say youth are the future, we strongly believe that youth are the now and that their voice needs to be heard today to build the future they want to live in. It is essential to provide them with opportunities to engage in dialogue, learn from each other, and build lasting friendships. With this vision in mind, Covenant of Nations is organizing a gathering that will bring 40 young individuals from the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Anishinaabe Nation together for a transformative peace-building experience.

The event will take place from September 14th to 17th at Crawford Lake, Ontario. Our aim is to create a safe and supportive space where these young minds can share their cultures, exchange ideas, and develop skills to become future leaders in their communities.

To make this vision a reality, we are seeking financial support from compassionate individuals and organizations who share our commitment to empowering Indigenous youth and fostering peace. The approximate cost per youth participant is $2,500, which will cover their travel expenses, food, accommodations, and teachings during the gathering.

Your generous contribution will not only support the attendance of these 40 inspiring young individuals but also make a profound impact on their lives and the communities they represent. By facilitating meaningful connections and promoting cultural appreciation, we can lay the foundation for a brighter, more inclusive future.

We kindly request your support in the form of a donation to help us cover the expenses associated with this gathering. Any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated and will directly impact the success of this transformative experience for the youth participants.
