Standing Rock Woodstoves
There are over 7000 people at Standing Rock representing over 300 tribes, including significant numbers of European-Americans. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is leading those who have gathered in unity to stop the Dakota access pipeline, in order protect the community's drinking water and uphold treaty agreements with the US government.
This is an environmental, social justice and human rights movement and they need our help. Let us add our voices and pool our resources to send heat to the tribes in need. They have requested stoves to help them to make it through the cold. They have been in the Standing Rock Camp since April and plan on staying thought the winter, and until clean water is valued as more important than profits.
We are at a tipping point right now with our environment, let us stand up and support water as life. The warmth of wood stoves as well as the warmth of our hearts and prayers, will help sustain the people who are standing up and speaking for the water and those of us who can not be there in person.
My name is Erika and I am working with all three camps, Oceti Sakowin, Rosebud, Sacred Stone, along side Earthwin Global, and Redlightning, to get heat and shelters out to Standing Rock Reservation.
My original goal was to purchase at least 40 stoves, (used and new) and the equipment needed to set them up, and drive them to the Standing Rock reservation. Gas money and money to rent a truck would also be helpful as I will be giving up hours at work to make this trip. At this time we have delivered over 131 stoves and we are continuing to supply the camps and stove crew with stoves, and stove parts to maintain the stoves. We are also at this point shipping firewood out to all three camps to keep the stoves cookin!
Most the wood stoves I am looking at bringing cost between $100-200. We make most of them, as well as source used and donated stoves.
Your contributions will help make this trip possible. Every dime donated will be used to buy woodstoves, heating units and to cover the cost of gas and shipping.
It is important to me that we support the Earth. It is important to me to support the people who are standing up and making their voices heard to support the Earth, the waters and human rights. Please share this campaign far and wide!
ANY amount of support will help.
I am grateful for your assistance and the assistance of earthwin, a non profit that is helping me, to make your donations tax deductible.

Today, we dropped 25 cords of wood at Standing Rock, to support the Water Protectors. Working in tandem with another group, we were able to double our efforts.
It's been tough the past month, since the mainstream media announced that the pipeline was on hold, contributions have pretty much come to a stand still.
Thanks to you, and many others, we are very slowly and steadily continuing to send firewood out to warm the bodies and hearts of the people willing to stand in place for us all.
We are not done at Standing Rock!
There is a lot of confusing information out there. There are lots of rumors. There are lots of folks who want it to shut down and there are Warrior's standing strong.
These Warrior's need you, need me, to continue sending our support.
Go there! If you can, go and stand and support the camp. Contact me if you need help getting in touch with a camp.
Send money for wood and food, or for legal assistance!
Pray! Pray, pray, pray!!!!
Make phone calls, call the reps, call the White House!
Divest your funds from the banks and companies supporting the pipeline. Tell them why you Are leaving.
Credit unions support local communities.
Follow your heart and ...
Now is the time to make your voice heard and to take action.
We WILL continue to send wood for the water protectors to keep the stoves we sent hot.
The wood is $225.00 per cord. Can you send a cord? Can you send half a cord? Can you spread the word?
It takes all of us to make lasting changes. It takes action. We can sit and talk about it all we want but until we act, we're just talking.
Thank you all for all your doing.
I am deeply grateful that we were able to help send wood this week.
It won't last long-
Erika and Angels
They need our support more than ever right now!
They need warmth to get them through.
I will be sending your tax deductible receipts to the email you provided when you made your contributions to Standing Rock Stoves.
I am hoping to get them all out in the next two days. Thank you for your patience. Luckily there are are over 450 to send out.
Please watch your email!!
Thank you again for your contributions, it takes us all to make the changes necessary for all life to be honored.
Today we are dropping of 25 cords of wood to the Standing Rock Water protectors. It will be divided between the three camps.
I can not do this without you and your contributions. Every penny helps. We will divide the load today, that will leave just over 8 cords per camp... it's not very much but it will help.
They are getting ready to drill. Lets keep the bodies of those standing vigilant for us warm.
Please keep spreading the word about sending firewood. $225.00 per cord. Contributions can be made here: https://www.gofundme.com/StandingRockStoves, tax deductible thanks to EarthWin!!
There is word that the Oceti camp and Rosbud camp will be moving over the next few weeks up to higher ground. I love the way that sounds!! They are not leaving!!! They are moving so the flood plain can be cleaned up and the river can be respected, as well as to stay dry.
Please keep the Water and the Earth in your prayers. Please keep the Water Protectors in your prayers! The small amount of work I have done has left me exhausted. I can only imagine how the folks out there day in and day out are feeling, with cold, illnesses and the mission of a life time on their shoulders.
Sending love and blessings to you all.
Who can I contact if I have a wood burning stove available?
Standing Rock camps are gone. Why haven't you closed down your funding account? Obvious reason is > self gain. You are being reported.
This is the best way to connect with me if you want the stove. I do not tweet. https://www.facebook.com/adam.pillar.98?fref=nf
I do not have money. I do however have a beautiful wood stove I would love to send there if someone can pick it up. I live in Mendocino California. Stand up for the rock and the water protectors.
Please sign my petition to reroute the Dakota Access Pipeline https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/reroute-dakota-access-pipeline-lake-oahe
I heard they are not leaving until Trump says he will stand with the decision of the Army Corps. So they still need the stoves.
I'm in Toronto Wanting to get There! Keep going To all the Righteous people of Earth Stand Firm like a Tree solid yet so Free. My Brother's and Sister's Miigwech
