We have just been notified by the Oglala tribal police that there are several families on the reservation that are in desperate need of wood for heating.
With temperatures expected drop below freezing, it is an immediate threat to the safety of these families.
We've also learned of 100 families in some of the remote, outlaying areas that are without food. One Spirit has been asked to help with holiday turkeys. We don't want to have to turn anyone away.
Hunger and cold together can be a lethal combination. Without food, the body has less resistance to cold temperatures. Children and elders are most susceptible to the dangers of winter weather.
We are extending the drawing for one more day. The new drawing time will be Sunday, November 22 at midnight, EST.
Any donations over $25.00 will be entered to win an original dream catcher, created by a Lakota artist. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own one of these one of a kind masterpieces.
