This is my friend Mario Wassaykeesic.  He is an inspiration to me and many other people. He’s a hard working social administrator, University language instructor prof, Ojibwemowin speaker and interpreter, Three Fires Lodge fireman & pipeman, marathon runner and roller coaster aficionado.  Hola!  He is also one of Anishinaabek territory’s hardest working fundraisers, raising money for all matter of great social causes.

This is a beautiful hand-stitched quilt.  You can win this quilt, support a good cause, and feel great by contributing to Oxfam.  All you need to do is buy a ticket.

All funds raised goes toward Oxfam, an important organization dedicated to eliminating poverty and injustice for women and girls in over 90 countries.  Oxfam is also supporting Mario in his goal of running in the 2016 New York City Marathon on November 6, 2016.
