Volunteer Your Time
Make a Donation

On May 12th, 2012, We will be traveling to Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota and collaborating with a church group from Texas who plans to bring a work force to repair some homes. Both our organizations plan to deliver a large supply of food and clothes to be distributed. If anyone would like to take part to volunteer in a very educational and fulfilling humanitarian odyssey by helping those in need, please contact us. You must be able to cover your own expenses. Our plan is to stay 5 days doing community work. Call 214-463-5061 ask for Marty.

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO HELP
THE NEEDY NATIVE INDIANS HERE IN NORTH AMERICA?

Many people see suffering in their own communities and throughout the world. They want to do something to help, but don't know what to do.

A TRUE humanitarian is to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to provide for the widow, to dry up the tear of the orphan, to comfort the afflicted, wherever we find them.

Do not send away any who were naked or that were hungry or that were sick...therefore be generous to all, having compassion to persons as to those who stood in need.

If you desire to help the needy North American Indians, you might consider the following practical opportunities:

* Give generously and often.

* Give generously to Indian Humanitarian organizations. All donations goes to help the poor and needy in Indian Country without regard to religion, age or disabilities.

* Donate usable items, including clean clothing, to non profit Indian organizations. Not only will this benefit the needy, but surplus items are sent to other reservations that are always in need. The purpose should be to donate to help those in need to become self-sufficient.

* Volunteer to work at non profit organizations warehouses or on any reservation. Your support will help to expand humanitarian aid.

* Volunteer at an agency that assists people in Indian country. Established community organizations offer many opportunities to serve, including providing meals to the less fortunate, building and repairing homes, teaching adults financial management, mentoring at-risk youth, etc. Such service not only blesses those in need, but also fosters unity between volunteers and the Indian community.

* Contact your choice of organizations to serve. Opportunities are available for anyone whose heart is to serve their fellow human being.

Our Success is only as Good as our Team of Volunteers

We are a grassroots volunteer charity. we strive for 100% of all donations to reach those in need. Our Board, Staff and Volunteers have agreed to accept no salaries for our work with this corporation. Our efforts are to ensure the continual movement of donations and supplies to our fellow Native Americans who are truly in need. Our motive is the sincere desire to serve from the heart, as our ancestors did.

Some of these dedicated volunteers have decades of experience in humanitarian programs, working unselfishly while receiving payments of warm smiles, thank you hugs and heart felt love.

There is no greater satisfaction of the heart then to see the smile on a child’s face when handing them a toy or an elder’s smile upon receiving a warm blanket. There is no greater joy then to serve those who can not serve themselves.
