The Art for Aid Project and I Love First Peoples are fundraising to cover the shipping costs of child-friendly sewing machines donated by our partner, Jenome Canada and by our wonderful public supporters of this program.
The program is being built for elementary students, but will benefit the community as well. Machines will be placed in (four) 4 schools in Natuashish, Pond Inlet, in Nain Labrador and in one other community yet to be determined.
Sewing is fun and offers a creative way for young people to learn a valuable skill.
Art for Aid along with Jenome, will supply material and sewing notions, thread, needles, machine oil, cleaning and repair tools - everything that will be needed, will be gathered for this program and shipped to the schools. One click and you're in! Support art education and quality learning tools for remote community students.
We salute Janome Canada and our supporters in their commitment to advancing Reconciliation through dedicated action!
If you would like to help us with the costs of shipping, please donate through I Love First Peoples and select the Sew & Sew program. An official tax receipt can be issued.
