We are very happy to announce that our garage sale was a success, and that it allowed
to raise $ 5,345.00! We have experienced an incredible surge of generosity, sharing and awareness. All of this was accomplished in the middle of public health measures respected by all. Thank you.
For those who were unable to make it to Terrebonne, thank you for sending us your donations.
Thank you to the Foundation’s Board of Directors, who did a remarkable job to make this event a success. Let’s not forget our many volunteers who have joined the Alaya team with all their heart and cheerfulness. Without this human wealth, nothing could have happened. Attention and dedication to others were the reason for this accomplishment.
I would also like to underline the too sudden departure of one of our donors, Mrs. Aline Laporte, who was interested in each of our missions and participated in our events. Thanks to Solange Ouimet, Director of Alaya, for sharing our actions with her.
As mentioned in our previous Newsletter, our second mission is to support indigenous communities during and after this pandemic. We sadly decided to cancel our gathering on October 17 in Kanatha-Aki in order to respect the public health instructions, and out of respect for all.
A new invitation will be sent to you for National Indigenous Peoples Day, during Spring season 2021.
Like all of you, we were absolutely troubled and affected by the tragic event that occurred in the Attikamekw community of Manawan. It is therefore towards this community that we will organize our efforts ; we will work in collaboration with the community to make sure the appropriate needs are being met.
Lebanon, our third mission, will also receive our full attention.
Our website will allow you to follow our missions, which are only possible thanks to your donations.
Keep taking care of yourselves, it is the only way to make the world a better place.
We confirm that our Garage Sale will take place on September 12 and 13
in Terrebonne. Everything must go! We have chosen for everyone beautiful things and small prices. Our primary goal is always to make people happy and support our missions!
Like you, we were not indifferent to the disaster that struck Lebanon on August 4. This is why our Board of Directors decided to support the Lebanese community. Our third mission is announced.
Remember to mark October 17, 2020 in your calendars, as it is our special day dedicated to First Nations, Inuit and Métis in Kanatha-Aki, Val-des-Lacs, in the Laurentians. The content of this meeting with the Indigenous will be sent to you soon.
It is still possible to donate online to the Alaya Foundation: www.fondationsalaya.org
Thank you for making the world a better place, and continue to take care of yourselves.
Martine Breuillaud, founder and general manager
