HELP US TO PURCHASE WARM SLEEPING BAGS

One of our Giving Back To Wounded Knee board members has found a deal on irregular outdoor sleeping bags. We have a chance to obtain (buy) 616 cold weather sleeping bags for $8 per bag! At the recent Ransom, Michigan library presentation on the Massacre at Wounded Knee we raised $2,000. Yet, we need to raise $2000 more. We need to pay for our rental truck, food, fuel, and rooms for Give Away trip to the Rosebud Reservation at the end of month. One of our board members was willing to kick in $1, 000 more to get us at $3,000 but we still need to raise an additional $2,000.

Will you help us? If just 20 people send us $100 each, we can take out 700 sleeping bags that would warm two whole communities on the Rosebud or Pine Ridge! That ALMOST gets us to our goal of 1000 bags! If 40 people donate $50 each, that makes is more affordable for more people.

Giving Back To Wounded Knee receives the sleeping bags when we send in the money, in bulk, or we don’t get the deal.  We have about 25 or 30 bags ready to take with us, donated, right now, some gently used. But can you imagine if we can 700 bags out there to keep people warm!
