I'm helping Conscious Alliance hit the road this winter to deliver 70,000 meals to kids in need! As little as $.50 provides one meal, so just a small donation will go a long way in helping me reach my goal by December 31st.
Anyone who knows me well, knows I have been profoundly influenced by the strength and character of the people living on the Lakota and Cheyenne Indian Reservations in the Northern Plains. Long ago our nation signed treaties with these nations which the Supreme Court has ruled are still valid, and yet we violated them to seize the richest resources, leaving them with the worst land, and an imposed form of government designed for failure. These communities have had extreme economic isolation imposed on them. As a result, today, up to half the population is a child under 18 living in poverty conditions and experiencing food insecurity. Yet somehow, because of the strength of the underlying culture, they maintain and carry on.
That is why I support the efforts of Conscious Alliance as a donor and board member, and ask you to join me.
Everyone looks to support good causes in these holiday seasons. But often people look only to need in the communities they live in. When a community is economically isolated, there is no surrounding prosperous population to support them. I believe it is very important to include in our giving, those communities of need that are economically isolated.
How will my fundraiser help reach hungry kids in need? Conscious Alliance is now receiving large-scale food donations (literally semi-trucks of food!) from the natural food industry. The money raised through my fundraiser will help move the food to where it's needed and will be distributed through Conscious Alliance's network of schools, getting the food directly into the hands of kids.
Join me in standing up against weekend hunger! Every $.50 you donate provides a meal and helps get me and Conscious Alliance closer to our goal of helping 70,000 kids this winter season.
