Join Other Western Icelanders in Support of Our 2017 Icelandic Charity Fundraiser
As in past years, the INLNA will collect and coordinate the transfer of a lump -sum donation to an Icelandic charity this holiday season on behalf of all Vestur Íslendingar (Western Icelander).
This year, the INLNA encourages everyone to join together to support a dynamic Icelandic charity called Á Allra Vörum, meaning On Everyone’s Lips. This charity started in 2008 when three women in Iceland believed more breast imaging equipment was needed for early cancer detection. They started raising funds, in large part by selling lipsticks. Each year since 2009, the charity has grown in popularity in Iceland, and a new cause is taken on by Á Allra Vörum each year. The 2017 cause is to build a transitional apartment complex in Iceland for women and children fleeing abusive relationships – a place to stay for up to two years. They already have the land and a significant sum from a recent telethon on Icelandic TV. But a donation from their cousins in North America would really help and be appreciated!!
We encourage all INLNA clubs, affiliate organizations and individual members to make a donation to this charity via the INLNA before December 31, 2017. Please make donations by mailing a check to the INLNA office or electronically via our INLNA donations page – indicating that the donation is intended for this 2017 charity fundraiser.
Our mailing address: #103 - 94 1st Avenue, Gimli MB R0C 1B1 Canada
