My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American Indian Youth Running Strong aka Running Strong for American Indian Youth, Alexandria, VA, USA
Over the years I have contributed small amounts of money to the projects you have selected. Thanks for including me as a supporter. The water project providing running water to the homes is a favorite. Congratulations on your work to provide water to families.
The gardening project is important too I know. I am highly concerned that the health care resources at Pine Ridge and other reservations will be undermined by the “reforms’ coming out of the White House. I am an ordinary person with a longstanding interest in Native American cultures. I have written two works of fiction that tie in to what I imagine are everyday issues for your people. Today I start trying to connect on a personal, friendship basis with the many schools and charities concerned with human quality of life on many reservations. I have so much to learn but I am starting with you. I call it a Friendship Brigade—part of a larger Friendship Brigade begun by the Hispanic Council here near Chicago that I helped found in 1996. I look forward to forging strong connections to your organization.
