Love for Standing Rock
We are planning monthly trips to Standing Rock in support of our brothers and sisters who are standing up for clean water and exercising their free speach.
We are directly supporting the Lower Brule Sioux/ Kul Wicasa camp from South Dakota. They are from one of the poorest counties in the country.
We bring monthly supply runs to their kitchen, which turns no one away. Good food keeps bodies and spirits strong, and we have direct communication with them to bring exactly what is needed. We leverage wholesale relationships with local producers so your donations go a long way.
In considering ways to get involved, aside from liking stuff on FB and sending $$ to the camp- I wanted to bring them something tangable to show solidarity and love. Alas, many folks asked how they could support the mission, so here is your chance.
What this money will buy in December:
1 cord of hardwood
100 lbs salmon
400 lbs grass fed Colorado beef
500 lbs Colorado chicken
2x stainless steel tables for safe food prep
1x large dishwashing sink
2x kerosene heaters for kitchen
Lots of fuel.
WE ARE LEAVING FOR STANDING ROCK ON 12/24. Please donate today.
Thanks in advance- Craig Taber
Thank you all so very much. Our mission was a success. Here are a few highlights from this trip:
-with the help of 35 volunteers, we prepared 2000 high quality, yummy meals that just had to be reheated at camp. This takes a lot of stress (prep, fuel, cleanup) off the kitchen staff, and allows for more rest for them. Huge win.
- we made 6 full prime rib roasts in a china box roaster and served over 100 people a baller dinner of mashed sweet potatoes, primerib, homemade gravy, homemade dessert. Video here: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155042054509170&id=511924169
- we brought a cord of split hardwood, propane, and 200 lbs of bacon.
The drive up was insane, check out my facebook page for the story..we drove right through the Christmas storm.
Our primary mission of bringing some love via great food was a overwhelming success. Everyone was very, very appreciative and many of the elders expressed gratitude for all of our prayers. We saw lots of smiles, it was truly magic to share a feast with so many peaceful warriors.
Everyone could tell this food was made with love, it was an honor to carry your prayers with us. This trip changed me.
Whats next for my/our involvement? I need to take January off to focus on taking care of myself and my business, with thoughts of another trip in February. Stay tuned. For now, know that you made a real difference. Thank you. Happy 2017. ♡♡ craig taber
Im going to check in with our allies at Lower Brule Sioux tomorrow, today, they are celebrating.
We are ~$1500 away from our fundraising goal for December. Thank you all so much.
Will you join me in one final push over the goal before Holiday crazyness takes over for everyone? Please share this link via email and on Facebook with a few friends. Consider tagging a few friends on Facebook in your post. Yes, this helps. And yes, you are all making a huge impact on the quality of camp life for the warriors in ND.
Thank you, truly.
