Assistance for SpiritQuest's Indigenous Neighbors

SpiritQuest's indigenous neighbors and friends in the Peruvian Amazon used to humbly make various financial requests to Don Howard. Now, they ultimately land on my desk. In the last month, both the Alamas tribe and the Muruy Huitoto tribe reached out to me. The Alamas would love some assistance to repair their maloca, which has seen much better days due to severe storm damage over the years. The Muruy Huitoto have aspirations of erecting a maloca in their current meeting place where the benches low to the ground currently exist, just up the hill from the Enchanted Stream. Our Bora, Kukama, and Yahua friends also have various projects for which they'd be eternally grateful for a bit of funding as well. Financial resources that can be allocated to smaller ticket items like school supplies, clothing, and miscellaneous tools would be most welcomed. 

In being as real as I can be, the odds that they could acquire the necessary resources to fund these projects themselves in the short term are not plausible. However, a few donations of a few dollars can make an enormous impact. A number of SpiritQuest alums, without any prompting from me, told me that they would like to financially support our local friends, and I figure this makes too much sense not to happen. 

Maybe our neighbors' kindness impacted you positively, or the way that they live life with an abundance mindset and an open heart gave you a helpful blueprint to follow. If you're feeling generous this holiday season, or at any time, please donate and share this GoFundMe with anyone in your network! I'll make sure to provide periodic updates as this fully gets off the ground.
