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!!!
