Firewood to Pine Ridge

Hi Friends, 

I read a heart wrenching article on Monday from the Huffington Post about the Pine Ridge Reservation. (You can find the link in this proposal.) It hasn't really left my mind and I wanted to do something to help especially in honor of Martin Luther King. I found someone with three semi loads of wood. He also has a driver to get the wood to Pine Ridge. The problem is the cost of getting the wood to Pine Ridge. One trip to Pine Ridge with the wood is around $1700. Depending on how much we can raise we could get a good amount of wood to needy people. Winter is far from over.

Thank you for your consideration and willingness to help. I've had so many people  donate blankets, gloves, hoodies, and coats. I am overwhelmed by how good-hearted my friends are. If you can't donate would you mind sharing this link?
