YOUR DONATIONS MAKE OUR GIVE AWAYS POSSIBLE

Hello Everyone!
We can’t thank you all enough for teaming up with us and stepping up to the plate to help us get much needed items out to the citizens on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Reservations. It has been wonderful! Monitary donations helps us rent the truck, get rooms overnight, and pay for the fuel and food. We thought you’d enjoy seeing how we set up for our Give Aways, usually at a church or school gymnasium.

The following video shows the Give Away at the Veterans Gymnasium on the Rosebud Sicangu Lakota Sioux Tribe in Mission, South Dakota this past Oct. 6, 2012.

It was wonderful! Everything was top quality. Please don’t forget about us for our 2013 Give Away. We now have enough right now to fill one half of a moving van.

We discovered sleeping bags were a much needed item so we’re collecting sleeping bags now. Please help us meet our goal of 1,000 warm sleeping bags. This past year Excel Extreme Sports gave us a special price for their irregular bags, whether they were single or double. As they only charged us $10 per bag we took literally hundreds of sleeping bags, blankets, comforters, and teddy bears out to the Rosebud Reservation.

We also thank our team on the Rosebud and those who came with us to help set up in Michigan, as well as unloading the truck in South Dakota.

Gratefully,
Cindy Hicks-Orth
Director
