Help Needed - Pine Ridge Reservation

After watching the news tonight i felt my spirits sink pretty low...With the new war going on in the Middle East, you barely hear word of the "old" wars going on there too...But we can be sure it is still going on...It can be so discouraging... Whenever i feel myself start to sink this way i have to remind myself that there is plenty we can do, right from our own homes, to try to make this world a better place. This YouTube Video was made by a young gentleman named Temba, who is a member of my Amma online Satsang group. (Temba is the gentleman in the video with the white shirt and white bandanna on his head.) He has brought to our attention the great need for donations to this reservation. They accept any kind of donation-food, clothing, money, toys, supplies...There is a list of things needed on the website: Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation
I think i just found another place to send my scarves, hats and teddy bears to....

Thanks Ladies...I know it is a terrible time to be looking for donations, but some of these places accept "gently used" clothes and toys, shoes and books...It's a great way to cut back on our extras, recycle, and help others at the same time...
