Tomorrow, you will have a chance to make your donation to revive the Altai culture BIGGER!
Our Altai partner, Svetlana Katynova has persuaded the local government to make land available for a traditional Altai village so that Altai kids living in the city can experience their culture, which is otherwise lost to them. Thirty volunteers are ready to built the village and live in it, reviving hope for Altai culture for 25,000 ethnic Altai people in the city of Gorno-Altaisk.
First, however, the land must be surveyed and registered, a water tower must be built, and the mountainous access road must be made passable.
Check your e-mail tomorrow morning for the details on how to make a BIG difference.
Tomorrow, your donation will be matched at 30%! This is a great opportunity to support the young Altai throat-singers who are, truly, the hope for the future of their at-risk culture.
These youths, coming out of situations of extreme financial lack, are winning national contests. They deserve to have a chance to fulfill their potential. Eighteen-year-old Viktor, pictured in this report, is one of those needing your support. He is shown onstage in the process of winning a contest celebrating ethnic minorities in Russia last November.
Look for the e-mail tomorrow morning and please give as generously as you can. Thank you for your ongoing support!
Very soon, you can make a big difference for kids on the Pine Ridge Reservation who live in dangerous mold-infested housing. Watch for the announcement of an upcoming matching opportunity from GlobalGiving.org.
Our Lakota partner, Christinia is preparing now, while the temperatures are still frigid, to be ready for next season's volunteer builders of safe eco-friendly homes for Pine Ridge families.
Now, ten, fifteen, or more members of extended families are surviving the winter in decrepit FEMA trailers or federal housing seriously contaminated with black mold. Please help Christinia be ready to bring hope to these families.
We'll send you a notice when the matching grant begins. Thank you for your continuing generosity!!
