Tomorrow morning, you'll have an opportunity to contribute toward the construction of safe housing on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and a matching grant will increase your gift.

Our Lakota partner Christinia Eala has to make preparations now, while the temperatures are still frigid, to be ready for next season's volunteer builders of safe eco-friendly homes for Lakota children. The situation on the reservation is truly as bad as any Third World slum, and if the families leave their land to try to improve their lives, they lose not only their land, but their culture as well.

Those of us who have benefitted from Native American lands need to right this situation. Please help Christinia be ready to bring hope to these families.

We'll send you a link in the morning when the matching grant begins. Thank you for your continuing generosity!!
