For a while now, I have been a supporter of the Friends of Pine Ridge, a donation-driven group who help provide a lifeline to the people of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Christmas presents, winter fuel, baby clothes, shoes for the children, blankets and food for the homeless, these are all donated by kind and loving people in the US and across the globe.
Pine Ridge has many needs, too many to list here and too many social problems that cannot be addressed on this blog. But one of the biggest problems on the rez is the lack of fresh, locally grown food from sustainable sources. Friends of Pine Ridge have decided, with the help of an online nursery, to provide fruit and nut trees for the reservation, which must be planted in November. The benefits of this would be long-term and hugely beneficial.
Please, please donate a tree. You will not be just donating healthy food, you will be donating roots, you will be donating pride, you will be donating a lifeline. Friends of Pine Ridge have a list of trees: just click their links and Stark Bro’s will do all the hard work. Click here
Happy Rosh Hashana to all my readers and friends who celebrate: I wish you a sweet and peaceful New Year. Begin 5775 with beauty
