The Goodwill Gesture began as a Land Claim Trust initiative. In 2006, the Thunderbird Trust (formerly Clench Fraud) joined the Xmas Household Giveaway initiative and shared the costs with the Land Claim Trust.  Since 2007, the Thunderbird Trust has taken on the giveaway as the sole funder until recent years the responsibility has been shared with the Nation contributing half of the total budget funds.  Giveaways are a traditional means used by the Anishinaabek to share resources amongst nation members.  This is an opportunity for the Thunderbird Trust to continue these traditions as per Section 6.7 H.
