After making your donation you will receive a written confirmation and your name will be placed on a foundational block of our virtual ‘qaggiq’—a large iglu where Inuit traditionally gathered to share stories, songs and dances. We will also keep you informed of our progress with a monthly newsletter and invite your ideas.
