I thank those who can donate, those who noted, those who will forward. Each act is adding to the help to these families who are in need. In this Country, the people this agency aids are the poorest of the poor. So thank you all for whatever can be done by you.

If you have gently used toys that your children or grandchildren have outgrown, regardless of the time of year, please go ahead and ship them to us. We have a section of our warehouse where we collect toys throughout the year to be prepared for the last minute request from a community.

This agency also collects clothing to pass out, so for those who can not afford to make a cash donation, if you have gently used toys or clothing and can afford to mail them, they will accept these things.

JUST CLICK ONTO THE SECTION THAT STATES .....PROGRAMS.....There are many various ways to help via this agency.

Thank you Hawkeye.....Blessings to you and to all who can donate in any of the various ways, money, toys, clothes......check out the site. It offers a lot of information.

Thank you all for whatever you can do or share. Remember, there is a section on here that tells you where to mail gently used toys and clothes. So if you can't afford a donation of money, if you can afford to shipe the items someone on the other end will be gtateful.

"Susanne, your donation is now complete."

I'm going to steal a line from an old Budweiser commercial, Dandelion: "For all you do, this one's for you!"

TUFT Dandelion, sorry my funds for this year - and indeed far above are exhausted due to many other humanitarian projects and when I almost failed to create my 7-Generations settlement I nearly had to plight my own soul to the banking cartel.

But what I can do is to share the site and to make a ceremony for the suffering Native Americans.
May they always walk in beauty!

Sheryl G (359)

Thank you for forwarding the site along. Perhaps someone will see it who can make a donation. Ceremony is always good....a positive thing.

What America has done to Native Americans is a tragedy. We should do everything we can to help. Send money, clothing, toys. Every thing helps.

Thanks so much for adding the info about donating clothes and such..i have a friend who was just forced to close her business, which had a small charity thrift in the back, she's been to depressed to do anythink but store it all. This will cheer both her and hopefully many others! Thanks sooo much Dandelion! 1love

Ellen I'm so sorry that your friend had to close her business but am so glad that out of that sad place that she can find a place to pass along the items that will be well received. Send her my love and thanks...and bless you for sharing the information to us. I'm so glad you were able to find this story and pass it along to her. This is what C2 is about if each takes a moment to share information like this with others.

Dear Dande, I missed the area for the Toys and do have Plush toys that have been bagged up and were ones that I had gotten awhile ago from donations -- Never used...Thank you soooo much for letting me know the address and where to send. I will put all in a flat rate box and send off. Normally, I take these out (that I had saved and take to the Children here in the Hospitals in California), but you delivered a better idea for these for me and am typing with wet eyes since I wanted to help so much...YES I CAN even though I a broke, I will charge the postage...Already so much on credit cards this won't be a dent!

Oh how wonderful Marilynn. The children who receive them will be delighted. I am so glad you noticed that they receive the toys too. Thank you so much.

Noted, thanks Dandelion. Will try to get a check to them in the mail as I do not use credit cards. "You cannot send a green star to Dandelion (who deserves at least a million stars as far as I'm concerned) because you have already done so in the past week."

Thank you Sheryl for the great work that you are doing. I donate to a lot of charities here in South Africa - the need here is also enormous.

You are correct Mariette, the situation is grave for so many around the world. If the Powerful would form more equitable societies for the masses then we'd all be able to have the basic needs met and the leaders and those who are in power would still be having nice lives as well. This earth is not limitless and the systems that are set up are not self sustaining.....this must change around the world.

Noted. Posted to FB. I have no money to give, but will keep above info to send clothing. My granddaughter is growing like a weed. I will save some of her things and send them. As for toys, that is probably not going to happen. She is just like my son when he was little. She tears everything apart. She just has to see everything. Thanks to you for posting this very important piece.
