We have sent an initial  load of firewood in support of the Standing Rock encampment.  Bitter cold, snow and winds make for very tough conditions.
These funds will pay off the balance of the $5500 for the 1st delivery.  My dream is to send a load a week through the Winter.
Your support is a deeply powerful message to those on the ground that they are not alone in this!
Thank you for helping in this important endeavor!

First load of firewood has been mostly paid for!
I am shifting focus to the other needs that are ongoing.
Medical supplies, fuel, propane, etc.
Thank you for your continued support and for spreading this around!

Great News! I spoke to Paul Freeman a few minutes ago-he is our contact at Standing Rock.
There is a women from Iowa in Bismark paying cash for wood, (the wood we were committed to buying), in addition, they have a man in the Black Hills who is donating a tremendous amount of wood to them if they'll come and pick it up!
I intend on continuing this effort and to be there when the current flurry of support has waned.

Received from those on site this morning

Yes, please. this is the standard message out, but we need wood.
We are experiencing extreme winter conditions and it is not safe to come here now for a visit. Thank you for the continued support, we are humbled and honored by the show of support. We apologize for the delayed response, shoveling snow, chopping wood and typing away as we pray. Please consider donating as we can work out the logistics here to get the needed supplies, such as fire wood and other consumables.

This is from my four grandchildren to support those who are fighting for the health of our earth - the world theirs and future generations will inherit when we elders are gone.

We have funds to purchase a semi load of wood for all camps. Is there a way you could connect us with your contact in the Black Hills that you mention in your description. Thank you, Anthony
