Thank You To All Our Friends…

Our consultants are leaders in their areas of interest and are the reason Three Things has been able to find the kind of success we have in each project, activity and event.  We are so grateful for them and we honour them.  If you’ve crossed paths with these folks, you know, like we do, that they are the foundation of the good works being done collectively by Three Things.  We are grateful they have stayed connected during these challenging past few years and look forward to seeing them, in person, and working together to create change.

Pathways Thunder Bay transitions to Shkoday Abinojiiwak Obimiwedoon

It is an exciting time in Thunder Bay, as with the support of Pathways to Education Canada and their commitment to youth led community engagement, this fall Pathways Thunder Bay, after a Bundle Transfer Ceremony, was passed along to be cared for and led by Shkoday Abinojiiwak Obimiwedoon. We are so grateful to the Regional Multicultural Youth Centre (RMYC) and young people who carried the voices of Indigenous students forward and helped launch the program.

Now with a full running program, Pathways Thunder Bay has the grade nine students who started last year in grade 10 and new students registering every month.

As the program evolves and grows, stay tuned to the amazing and important work that is taking place in Thunder Bay! As always we are humbled to walk the path forward in a good way in Thunder Bay.

There are many choices available for organizations, communities and governments when engaging with outside vendors to support their activities, develop and deliver community-based programming, offer services including program evaluations, process facilitation and communications and provide strategic advice. Most provide quality work and it can be a challenge to determine the best fit for your needs. Based on the number of clients who have engaged with us repeatedly, we believe we can be the fit you are looking for. We have found when we share values with our clients, we are able to develop lasting relationships that provide meaningful and measurable results from our work. We root our work in traditional knowledge and processes, research and science and years of experience. We are Three Things Consulting. We are an Indigenous owned and incorporated company, originally a collaboration between three innovators with a combined experience of more than seventy years in facilitation, evaluation, program design, youth and adult gathering development and management, community and youth engagement, project and research development and implementation, training and capacity building, assessment, strategic planning, partnership/program development and knowledge sharing. Our roots and process are tied to a core lesson learned from our work: people matter, are important and belong. Our focus is on engagement, development, motivation and healing. We share #the3Things with young people, their families, communities and allies reminding them that they matter, are important and that they belong.

As we remember and recognize those who lost their lives on this day in Montreal in 1989, we keep in our minds, hearts and spirit the thousands of women: our sisters, aunties, grannies, daughters, nieces...our mothers...who have been killed since. It is essential that we remember.

Equally essential is saying, enough is enough.

We call in the men in our circle today. It's time to further step up, speak out and stand alongside the women in your life.
It's time we listen and learn - and encourage our brothers, cousins, nephews, fathers, grandfathers and sons to do the same. We know it's hard. Though, it's so much worse when we don't.

Today (and tomorrow too) is an opportunity to reflect on our relationships and engagements with women and girls. How can we shift how we open our minds and hearts, how we talk with and about women and girls (our language matters) and behave in a way to ensure those we love, (and those we don't even know), are safer?

We act.

We get brave and call out violent and racist behaviour and language. We call on our leaders to do more. We lift up the women in our spaces. We support local organizations doing the work that happens, most often, as a result of men's violence.
We show, through our actions, that we too know that enough is enough.

If you are affected by gender based violence, here is information about potential supports for you and your family.

As we chatted about last week - we attended the Indspire National Gathering on Indigenous Education - and while we shared some amazing things happening - the education gap between Indigenous high school students and their non-Indigenous peers is still very much a challenge. Thankfully, there are great people doing great work across the country with the support of Pathways to Education Canada.

Join us as we catch up with our new friends at Shkoday in Thunder Bay, home to the Pathways Thunder Bay program - where we'll learn more about their organization and opportunities for Indigenous students - and for those who want to walk a good path with them!

Tonight (Saturday) live at 7 PM EST!

The world is a challenging place at times; and for some, more than ever today.

Giving Tuesday is an opportunity, in whatever way works for you, to be able to make a difference.

Today you can share resources, like a donation to a charity that matters to you, support for local food, coat or toy drives, offer a service or time to a movement that is important to your community or, the easiest way - practice kindness in your connections with others. To give of ourselves helps the world be less challenging. For others, and ourselves.

While we at Three Things stand alongside organizations doing important work throughout the year with monthly contributions, sponsorship's, and in-kind support - today, for us, is day to reflect on the upcoming holiday season and recognize that we can share with our neighbours, friends, champions, allies and communities that help others know they belong.

Here are links to some of the spaces we supported today and we invite you to learn more and do the same - or find your own passion or organization that is doing something that matters and provide support directly to them.

Pathways to Education Canada helps making contributions easy below - with a simple e-transfer. You can also find them on CanadaHelps (as you can for most of those below) and give that way as well. In low-income, Indigenous and raciliazied communities across Canada, high school dropout rates can be more than double the national average. The team at Pathways Canada works tireless as allies and champions for these students and they and their partners are lessening the divide and achievement gap, all while creating spaces where students know they belong. www.pathwaystoeducation.ca/donate-by-etransfer/

With $9 romaine lettuce and the like, food insecurity is a growing concern for many Canadians, including those who were already struggling prior to the increase in inflation and cost of living. If you are still buying Romaine, maybe you can support Food Banks Canada (or a local food bank in your community) to help ensure others will have enough in their cupboards to get through this very difficult month. And today - Skip the Dishes is matching donations to Food Banks Canada - so it’s as great day to leverage your giving.

Supporting work in our community matters too and here in Kingston as part of our Giving Tuesday contributions we supported Kingston Food Bank- Partners in Mission and encourage you to do the same, here in Kingston or your local community.

If you are looking for a new and emerging program, led by members of Millbrook First Nation, you can learn more about Wekope'kwitk Mijipjeweyuo’kuom Society, or the Millbrook Food Bank on their Facebook page. They are providing support and care in their efforts to address food security at a Nation level. As Millbrook has a special place for us, with our pal Brennan Googoo each Saturday night goes live with us as the host of Come Walk With Us…it was easy to support this new community driven movement. You can donate directly via e-transfer at millbrookcommunityfoodbank@gmail.com. Learn more at Wekope'kwitk Mijipjeweyuo’kuom society millbrook food bank.

We continue to value the important work undertaken by Cindy Blackstock and the entire team at the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada. If you are wanting to stand alongside First Nations children and youth; this is where you can learn more about how to - and how to support their important work that is helping ensure First Nations kids from coast to coast to coast know that they matter.

The Students Commission of Canada has long been creating change in the lives of young people - and creating space for them to create change in their communities, schools, Nations and families. As their scope of work grows, having allies stand alongside them will help ensure that young people continue to gather, share, learn and build a strong community together - empowering them to do the same where they live, study, work and play.

Giving Tuesday: Much thanks for all organizations doing good work, (including those we support throughout the year including Reelout Queer Film Festival, The Indigenous Spirit Fund (ISF) supporting Native Child and Family Services of Toronto and BGC South East). Your work, spirit and heart matters and the outcomes are important. You are helping our neighbours, families and community members know they belong. And that, while priceless, we know takes resources. We hope today, and throughout the holiday season many will step up to walk these paths with you and those you serve.
