With a goal of building a playground and outdoor recreational facilities in every remote northern community across Canada, "Help Wesley Build A Playground" will launch its first playground in the community of Attawapiskat, Ontario. Attawapiskat is a First Nation reserve located along James Bay, steeped in poverty, homelessness and neglect.

Most remote norther communities do not have outdoor recreational facilities or playgrounds. Boredom is a leading contributor in epidemic levels of childhood obesity, teen pregnancy, arson, vandalism, drug and alcohol abuse, and ultimately, youth suicide.

11 year-old Wesley visited Attawapiskat and made a lot of friends. Sadly though, their playtime was limited by the lack of facilities. He came home determined to rally his friends and family around this cause. Visit any community across Canada and you'll find kids playing at a playground - everywhere that is, but in Canada's north. Let's change that. Let's give kids a place to be kids.

How will the $25K be used?

Budget Notes: The cost of shipping to Attawapiskat, as is the case with most remote communities is very expensive. Any amounts over the $5,000 budgeted for shipping will be covered by TrueNorthAid and its generous donors.
$ 20,000 Playground materials and construction
$ 5,000 shipping
