As nine more suicide/overdose attempts were made in Atawapiskat this week, the local campaign pleads for support.

Derek Armstrong is leading a local fundraiser that you may have read about earlier on SaultOnline.com

He has managed to raise over $2,200 of $15,000 needed to send youth role models and leaders to the First Nation to help council the youth.

You can donate on this page. Armstrong is 100 per cent transparent with his donations on the site.

Below is a letter that the chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation is now sending to Prime Minister Trudeau.
