Firewood For Standing Rock

$12,630 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 253 people in 17 months

ENOUGH FIREWOOD to supply all of the people at Standing Rock THROUGH the WINTER!!
www.GoFundMe.com/srfirewood

We are NoDakotaAccessIndy (find us at www.Facebook.com/NoDakotaAccessIndy ).

We are coordinating with supply crews on the ground at Standing Rock in the various camps for the past few days to set up the logistics to pick up and deliver over 10+ semi loads of good firewood to the camps at Standing Rock.

So far the tribe has been spending $1,000+ per day to rent Uhaul equipment and pay drivers to get firewood into camp. This truck and trailer will save a lot of money and time and get the wood to camps where it is needed much more quickly and efficiently!

We are now fundraising with a network of other groups to generate the $30K needed to purchase a new 20ft dump trailer ($13K) and truck to pull it ($10K - $17K).
** We currently have approx $9,000 towards this goal.

With this equipment crew at Standing Rock will be able to haul in wood stockpiled and intended for this purpose.

This trailer will also be able to bring in other supplies like water, propane, and medical gear needed for the camps.

Contribute today to keep the Water Protectors warm this Winter!!

At the completion of this campaign, we will transfer all of these donated funds directly to coordinators at Oceti Sakowin.

The "tribe" will own this dump trailer and truck, and title will be put in the name of an LLC jointly owned by tribe members for dedicated use at Standing Rock.

**If you are at Standing Rock and need wood at your camp, here is the most recent update on that:

Thank you again everyone for your donations.

We just sent another $2,500 to Standing Rock to be used to purchase a heavy duty pick up truck (F550) to pull the 20ft trailer(which our/your donations already helped purchase) that is now being loaded multiple times per day with firewood for the camps!

We are still accepting donations, so please spread the word and keep this campaign going!!

1/2 way to Victory!! Standing Rock crew, lead by Chooch, picked up a new 20ft Dump Trailer Friday morning to be used to haul and distribute wood at Standing Rock!

Now our goal is to fundraise for a purchase the proper truck to tpull it. Currently, they are using an F350, but this is only a temp fix. An F450 or F550 is the proper type of truck to haul these heavy loads.

Please continue to spread the word and the funds coming in to help us achieve this goal.

**If you or someone you know has a truck to donate, that would be most ideal!

Here's a short video of crew picking up the trailer:

Update on “Firewood For All of Standing Rock” Fundraiser

We are working directly with a group on the ground to purchase a large heavy duty dump trailer and truck in order for crews in Standing Rock to pick up and bring in over 140 Cords of wood that are stockpiled and waiting for pick up. This will be enough wood to supply everyone in camp for the winter.
www.GoFundMe.com/srfirewood

We should be able to purchase this trailer in the next couple of days. We a working on resourcing one in the area for a good price right now.

So far the tribe has been spending up to $1,000 or more per day to rent Uhaul equipment and pay drivers to get firewood into camp. This truck and trailer will save a lot of money and time and get the wood to camps where it is needed much more quickly and efficiently!

The trailer will be purchased in the next day or two. We have partnered with Unify.org, who has lent us a F350 pick up truck to haul the trailer for now, however the next fundraising goal will be to purchase a F450 or F550 truck that is much more suitable to haul this kind of weight.

This project has been approved and is being promoted by the tribes. We have made arrangements with tribe members that all of the donations we are collecting through our GoFundMe will be transferred directly to the camps through the OcetiSakowinCamp Paypal link.

We have raised over $9,000 and our goal is to get to $14K to cover the cost of this dump trailer.

NO MORE CLOTHES DONATIONS. Please consider donating clothing and other items previously collected by you or groups to those in need the most, local shelters and reservations outside of Standing Rock, anywhere a relative needs help.

FYI from our website...
We are the Oceti Sakowin Camp, and we remain the designated voice of the Oceti Sakowin Camp.
Our focus has been on the survival and well-being of the camp community, and helping those who want to leave do so safely.

We are the only organization providing emergency services for the camps Standing with Standing Rock.
We are the group providing emergency shelter in partnership with Cannon Ball Community. We also coordinate infrastructure support for the camps including firewood, propane and water; working closely with volunteers to distribute incoming donated items.
We do need help, skilled help, dedicated help.
Coming here now is about more than our individual experience, it’s about pulling together so we can Stand Strong.
Oceti Sakowin Camp needs community members prepared for arctic conditions. We need people with the fortitude to dedicate a significant portion of each day to the survival of the community. Please bring all-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive vehicles.
Areas we need help most are the in the kitchens, compostable toilet maintenance—an essential foundation to healthy communities, and people able to transport donations to camp from surrounding communities. Some administrative help would be great.
We invite cooperative community members who are willing to work with the people who have been on the ground for some time. We welcome experienced builders who can help us with reinforcing existing structures. We welcome skilled medics and natural healers who work collaboratively to take care of our Water Protectors. We welcome team-players who have the desire to help others and who can plug into areas of camp where they are most needed.
First, if you are considering coming to camp, ask yourself:
Have you ever done hard labor of any sort in -30 degree weather?
Do you know how to put chains on tires?
Do you see your time in Oceti mostly spent in a small dwelling with people you know?
~ or
In community meetings, and actively contributing your time to work on a volunteer basis?

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 any 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.

Leatrice- millions where? Sacred Stone is doing their own thing with the funds they received. The cost of running a city of 2000-10000 people providing water, fuel, trash service, bathrooms, legal support etc has been astronomical considering they are in the middle of North Dakota. That said I'm certain some folks are holding out. But the reality has us with this crew actually being at camp working every single day to bring wood to everyone that needs it, they've asked Chase for help, they are asking others for help. We are all frustrated but I fully 100% support this crew as I know they are keeping things running, I speak with them daily and hear from the campers that are receiving wood. These people have been there for months and arent leaving. It's a shame they arent getting support and many left camp with the resources THEY were given. I would like to see more pressure on the big accounts to be transparent and I find it terribly upsetting that LaDonna or Chase or anyone with big funds isnt helping NOW

When I give a gift, I give it. No strings attached. It is no longer my money to spend my way -- it is up to the receivers of the gift to decide how to spend it. Period. If you do not trust, then do not give. If you give, then trust. Try it. You will love the universe better. Anxieties over money will not save the planet. Be frugal with what you take. Be generous with what you give. Be kind. Please. Wopila.

Make sure you set a chunk of $ aside for maintenance. Hauling like that goes thru tires, trannys, brakes, rear ends, rapidly. You may be better off just hiring out the hauling.

Jeremy Roberg, I would like to read that. I can't see how that Casino could possibly be losing money - they have every room booked every weekend and have had for months into the future. And the GAS - that statio had lines around the block the last time i was there, not to mention all we spent in Mandan and Bismarck. I'd like to know why the Tribe has suddenly abandoned the people in this camp. I have poured resources into this and I only expect honesty back. There is no loss of property, life or limb to the people of Dakota here - only the Water Protectors have paid the price of Standing for all of our Rights and I will continue to support them. When DAPL pulls that drill and opens 1806 I call it a victory but not until then.

I'm pretty sure I read a statement from a tribal elder who claims "the tribe " was spending 60 thousand a month for port-a-potties. not the camp.. ( and the casino had lost a million in revenue as of then ) there has been about 14 million dollars donated for this so far. this thing will end as one of the biggest charity scams in history , if not the biggest.

Where is the firewood coming from? Something to consider is source and effect bringing wood from other areas of the country by pest that could endanger the trees of ND. I understand the need but please consider source to protect the resources of ND. http://www.dontmovefirewood.org/the-problem/state-state-information/north-dakota.html
