Diane Sawyer at Pine Ridge
You are a mother of five living on the Pine Ridge Reservation with your elderly parents and assorted in-laws (fifteen people in a small dilapidated house), with no job or even the opportunity for one, and you can't even afford toothpaste, laundry soup or other basic hygiene items needed by the members of your family.
Not to mention that everyone in the family is hungry because, while you do get food stamps, they never last through the month. What do you do?
If you're very lucky you get put on the One Spirit Okini list and someone chooses to help by sending you not only food but much needed hygiene items, kitchen items, blankets and clothes.
One Spirit does tremendous work on the Pine Ridge reservation, but there are limits to how much they can help. Without sponsors or donations to the programs, including the Okini program, they are helpless to help the people of Pine Ridge.
People on the Okini list ask for so little, things you and I take for granted. People ask for food, dishes, clothing, toothpaste and laundry soap for example. There are children on the Okini list who can't go to school because they don't have clothes or shoes for goodness sake!
Please open your heart today and become a donor at One Spirit. The Okini list has many desperate families who need your help right now.
Click now to help.
