Next Tuesday is Giving Tuesday, PAOV

On November 27th, you can give to RAVEN and, not only will your donation be matched dollar for dollar by a generous group of donors, but you'll pay zero online fees. This Giving Tuesday we are putting every dollar we raise into the crucial Tar Sands Trial campaign.

The Beaver Lake Cree's fight to uphold treaty rights has experienced an incredible wave of support, with excitement about the case spreading all across the country. Since November 1st, we've raised an amazing $60,000 so that when this small Indigenous Nation faces down Canada and Alberta in court, they'll have the evidence they need to back up their solid case.

People have donated, set up online fundraisers and organized events in Montreal, Toronto, and Victoria.

Honestly, our momentum this month has taken us all by surprise!! We didn't think we'd be saying this but: with matching funds and no-fees Giving Tuesday, we think we can make it all the way to $575k by midnight on November 30th.

Want to help us get there?

RAVEN donors like you are making a serious impact.

Indigenous legal challenges supported by this incredible community have:

• stopped the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline
put the brakes on the Kinder Morgan Transmountain expansion project.
• won a Supreme Court victory to ensure the protection of the Peel Watershed in the Yukon

You are being asked to do a lot -- in addition to the usual requests for money you are being called to action - as organizers and activators to spread the word about our campaigns. It's because we're the only organization in the country that is dedicated to levelling the playing field by providing access to justice for Indigenous Peoples. Though they're outspent by industry and government at least $100 to $1, with your backing Indigenous Nations are winning case after case in Canada's courts, setting powerful precedents and reshaping this country for the benefit of future generations.

Please spread the word about our upcoming Giving Tuesday 'no-fees, matching funds' opportunity to someone who wants to put reconciliation into meaningful action and defend wild and sacred places for future generations.

Here’s what some of this month’s supporters have to say:

"Courage, sisters and brothers! Mset no'kmaq. We are all related." — Bill Hipwell

"I have always 'supported' First Nations projects, without actually doing much, so thank you for telling me about RAVEN and for the inspiration to give some money!" — anonymous donor

"This is to thank, and wish the very best, to all the fine people who are fighting for the planet. The very best to you all. With untold appreciation, Maddy."

Thank you for being part of RAVEN's amazing story. Your endorsement goes a long way to finding new donors and supporters many of whom — we promise — will welcome an opportunity to do right by Indigenous Peoples in an era of reconciliation.

With thanks and admiration,

The RAVEN team
