Today is GlobalGiving "Matching Day" and the indigenous Altai youths who are dedicating their lives to sustaining their sacred culture will receive an extra 30% matching bonus with your donation.

The matching starts at 9am ET and goes until the matching funds are all allocated, which usually takes not more than half a day. So please donate immediately if you can.

These young people are faced with the terrible choice of sticking with their culture and depending on international help until they can get their feet under themselves or abandoning their ancient culture and entering a job market that is strongly prejudicial against them.

Your donation enables them to hang onto their culture and steward their sacred lands just a little bit longer. Thank you for both previous and future donations!!!

Today is GlobalGiving "Matching Day" and our urgently needed house-building project in Pine Ridge, South Dakota will get an extra 30% matching bonus with your donation.

The matching starts at 9am ET and goes until the matching funds are all allocated, which usually takes not more than half a day. So please donate immediately if you can.

Our project leader, Lakota elder Christinia Eala, just keeps on plugging, stretching every dollar past the breaking point, organizing volunteers and donated materials for next summer's build. After building supplies, the biggest and least avoidable expense is for gasoline. The nearest building supply is a two-hour drive away, in Rapid City, and volunteers must be transported back and forth to the airport as well.

Your donation not only enables the work, but it also sends a strong message to the beleaguered Lakota people that the American public does care about solving the problems we have collectively created for indigenous peoples. Thank you for both previous and future donations!!!

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!!
