I read a book several years ago by a Pine Ridge native woman but I cannot remember her name. It was eye-opening.

Something's wrong. When I try to access the article, either by clicking on the title or the Visit Site button, I'm connected to the "Java Nook" Group site. Can anyone help, I really want to get to the thread. Thanks, Deb

Good Day ~ I Just got off of 2 phone calls - 1 w/Robin of Pine Ridge Reservation and a charming lady from Crow Creek Reservation both lovely ladies were excited and happy to hear about the Fund Raiser planned which I am sending to you in this card - I was also told that they would both send me a list of other items desperately needed for my many friends who can not participate in this event if due to not living in the United States/territories or not having the funding. It is cold and snowing there today - and so I pray each of you will be kind enough to tell others about this event. Before I post what the event looks like I want to thank you for helping me w/this - I want to send each of you a hug - and tons of green stars.

Welcome to
Crow Creek/ Pine Ridge Reservations Online Event
Name: Crow Creek/ Pine Ridge Reservations
Organizer: Robin Tapio Pine Ridge/Lester Thompson Crow Creek
Phone: 605-245-2221

The following event has been established in order to raise funds over the next 5 months for both the Crow Creek and the Pine Ridge Reservations. Our Native American Indian Brothers and Sisters have had no electricity all winter. Therefore, the proceeds will be sent to Tribal Elders for both Reservations in order to make sure these 2 Reservations have resources to pay for the fuel costs this coming winter. I have been told that if we are successful we could extend this event in order to add additional funds for basic needs. Please join me in helping to raise monies assuring heating - electricity, so the essential needs of these Reservations have been met. When you go online to place your order/s please be sure to use the following code - 12051951 when you are checking out. This code (12051951) will link your order with this event. I was assured that a tally ($ goal/and how much raised to date)would be seen by all and I believe the number of people participating in the event will also be seen. I want to thank each of you for helping no matter how small. I have had the honor and pleasure of not only talking to Robin from Pine Ridge Reservation and a representative from the Crow Creek Reservation and they are excited and grateful that we are trying to make a difference. (As I write this I was told it was very cold and snowing - help is needed. 3/11/2010). Please remember Avon has a 100% satisfaction guarantee - they are a reputable Fortune 500 company and are strong Philanthropic supporters of both Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence. Avon also participated in the donation of monies to the Haitian Relief Cause, so awareness of the plight of others is a concern of all the outstanding men and women of this Corporation. To learn more about Avon and the Foundation please read that section "aboutAvon" this way you can see what this company stands for. Thanking you again, in advance for participating in this most critical and life changing event. We are each taking a step to change the world by helping others.

I know many of you cannot afford to participate in this manner or do not purchase Avon which now actually does more then simple perfume etc... I'd appreciate if you are able to check out the site - send me feed back on your impression -

I know that ANY care package - toys - clothing - books - blankets - towels - you name it - dried foods (beans - pasta - soup granules/bouillon cubes) - rice - cereal - powdered milk - instant coffee - tea) - anything would help. I have learned a great deal about Pine Ridge Reservation and will post it here on this link.

The world seems to be going to hell in a hand basket - isn't it time we maybe revert back to actually caring about our fellow human beings - our neighbor - those less fortunate then us? I may have nothing presently because of Identity Theft but, I have more and am rich because of my friends - I have a roof over my head

I think you should shorten the event and end it 3/30 - if people are going to help they will do so now - otherwise people will assume they have lots and lots of time.
just a thought
