How you can help the organization when you live far away

Dear Defenders,

Some of you ask how you can help the organization when you live far away.  We recently learned about the Christie Cookie company giving dollars to foundations.  All you have to do is go to their website and vote for Defenders of the Black Hills.  The foundation with the most votes can win $25,000.
Please go to www.ChristieCookies.com and vote for Defenders of the Black Hills.

Please can you send this, or a similar message on to all your friends and ask them to vote for Defenders of the Black Hills as well?  

This effort might win some very much needed funds for Defenders, but  also will spread the word about the work we do.

We are all still volunteers, with no office, or funds to operate a very much needed office.  To have paid personnel would be heaven sent.  Until a miracle, or some funds come in, our organization will continue operating out of the Coordinator's dining room.  Amazing that we get accomplished what we do.  Just think what we could accomplish with an office and...staff.

Your one email vote could help Defenders of the Black Hills in a big way.  It never hurts to try.

Thanks so much for your encouragement and support.

Mission Statement

"Defenders of the Black Hills is a group of volunteers without racial or tribal boundaries whose mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the environment of the 1851 and 1868 Treaty Territories, Treaties made between the United States and the Great Sioux Nation."

Speaking about radioactive fallout, the late President John F. Kennedy said,

"Even then, the number of children and grandchildren with cancer in their bones, with leukemia in their blood, or with poison in their lungs might seem statistically small to some, in comparison with natural health hazards. But this is not a natural health hazard and it is not a statistical issue. The loss of even one human life, or the malformation of even one baby who may be born long after we are gone, should be of concern to us all. Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics toward which we can be indifferent."
