Inviting Canadians to Support Vancouver 2010 Aboriginal Youth Legacy ProgramShare Tweet
I’m very excited to announce today that we have teamed up with the Four Host First Nations (FHFN) and the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) to launch a new online donation program that supports the Vancouver 2010 Aboriginal Youth Legacy Program. The fund has been created by VANOC and the Four Host First Nations to support sport, culture, sustainability and education initiatives for First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth Canada-wide.
Take a look at the video to find out more about the partnership and program from Ferg Devins (a.k.a. @MolsonFerg), Chief Public Affairs Officer for Molson Coors Canada, Tewanee Joseph, Executive Director of the FHFN, First Nations designer Glenn George and Sammy Kent, Aboriginal Alpine Skier and Aspiring Olympian.

Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast can pledge their support online at blog.molson.com/community/shop and with a minimum donation of $10 they will receive a First Nation-designed 2010 collector pin. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Vancouver 2010 Aboriginal Youth Legacy Fund.
About the Collector Pin: created by First Nations designer Glenn George. The pin’s artwork includes an illustration of the sun rising high above two mountain peaks. The sun is meant to give life to the Mother Earth, while the mountains, commonly known in Vancouver as “the Lions,” represent protection.
