Today the new Downie Wenjack Fund website launches; it’s a bittersweet feeling for Animikii. Our team has been proud to work with this organization over the last year, and especially over the last few months as we’ve developed this innovative new site. But the timing of the launch is of course tough for the team. We worked with the amazing, hardworking Downie Wenjack Fund team, as well as their advisors like Mike Downie and Charlene Bearhead to create something that we hope is beautiful, functional, and acutely shares Gord’s call to action for Reconciliation.

If you’d like to, please ‘walk the path’ of this site, to learn about all of the amazing things the Downie Wenjack Fund is doing and will do.  In honour of Wicapi Omani: may your walk among the stars on the other side be full of peace knowing that you’ve done something amazing - that you’ve brought Canadians into the conversation who had never listened before.
