Membership in the INLofNA (Icelandic National League) has so many benefits! Do you know all the fun we are having? Have you checked out the many programs? This organization and the INL in Iceland are both doing great things keeping the connections strong, preserving the culture, and sharing the history of Iceland and her people.
One project we work on is to send a donation to the ICELAND MOTHER'S FUND CHRISTMAS CHARITY. This will be our sixth year with this special fund drive for Christmas. 100% of the money raised by the INLofNA is given to this particular charity in Iceland. Anyone can participate in this fund drive. The charity supports families throughout the year with food and clothing and gives special help to those who need it over the Christmas holidays.
Donate ONLINE or send donations by December 1:
INL of NA - Mother's Christmas Fund #103—94 1st Ave Gimli,MB R0C 1B1
We also have ONLINE Crowdfunding for our most popular programs. There are rewards, too, depending on the size of your donation. You can choose to support the program you like: Snorri West, International Visits, INL Reads, INL Movies, or the General Fund.
