					Greetings,

Thank you for considering a sponsorship for the book of Voices: Voices of Aboriginal
adoptees and foster children Luncheon Fundraiser with Beatrice Mosionier, Author
of In Search of April Raintree and celebration of its 25th Anniversary Edition.

What will your sponsorship do?

The book of Voices: Voices of Aboriginal adoptees and foster children Lunch is a
fundraising event with proceeds going towards developing youth programs and creating
opportunities for EAYGL to participate in leadership and governance events nationally
and internationally as well as sustain current youth projects such as:

•   Challenge Day - Breaks down barriers, reduces peer pressure and promotes positive
    peer pressure, reduces racism, oppression and violence.
•   United Nations – Aboriginal youth attend the United Nations Headquarters in New
    York City for the opportunity to develop leadership skills through global dialogue and
    information exchange.
•   Executive Facilitator Training Sessions - Aboriginal youth are trained to facilitate at a
    professional level for various activities throughout the calendar.

On The Same Page: Manitoba Reads

An initiative inspired by similar literacy projects seen across the globe, but it’s unique in
its goal to get an entire province reading and talking about the same book at the same
time. The mass reading project encourages every Manitoban to read or re-read this year’s
selected title, In Search of April Raintree by homegrown author Beatrice Mosionier. By
reading this classic of Canadian literature, participants will promote literacy, education
and local talent, while connecting with readers across our diverse province.

Stolen Generations, Inc.

Stolen Generations is a dynamic group of Aboriginal youth that experienced the positive
and negative effects of the policy and practice of adoptions of Aboriginal children outside
their inherent culture. This today is considered to be one of the most significant inter-
generational issues arising in the aftermath of residential schools, also known as the
“sixties scoop”. As a result, Stolen Generations developed a book of stories entitled
Book of Voices, Voices of Aboriginal Adoptees and Foster Children, which is a
collection of adoptee stories from across Canada and the United States that shares and
contributes to the healing process for adoptees in the Aboriginal community.
What is Empowering Aboriginal Youth in Governance and Leadership (EAYGL)?

Empowering Aboriginal Youth in Governance and Leadership (EAYGL) is a group
of Aboriginal youth leaders working towards building leadership capacity in our
communities, as an initiative of the Aboriginal Leadership Institute, Inc. (ALI). As a
non-profit organization, ALI is committed to promoting governance that creates building
blocks for the future in Aboriginal communities.

Book of Voices, Voices of Aboriginal Adoptees and Foster Children Luncheon

On February 27th, 2009 EAYGL will host a Luncheon to address the continued issue of
First Nations adoptions and the community request for copies of this book and copies of
In Search of April Raintree.

Aiden Todd with Beatrice Mosionier, Author of In Search of April Raintree.
