Lakota Reservation Ice Storm donations

Postby BarbaraSher » Tue Feb 09, 2010 7:20 pm

I found these addresses and think they're legitimate. (Can't seem to find anything on msnbc.com which is where I was told to find it.) Some requests for donations aren't legit. I think this is, but I'll continue looking.

I heard on the Keith Olbermann show that the university of North Dakota is asking for shoes for the Lakota people. Can anyone substantiate this?

Had to watch the show again to catch it - this is the site Olbermann mentioned (matching funds for donations): http://www.razoo.com/story/Cheyenne-Riv ... Assistance

Also, Olbermann has a few more links with more info on the Countdown site: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036677/ I heard him say on his show yesterday that the fundraising organizers had hoped to raise $35,000 by the end of February, but that within 24 hours of his talking about it on his show, Countdown viewers had already donated over $130,000. Go Keith!

:-) Last night he said that number had doubled. And that the Lakota got the money right away, before any government studies were completed. Said that they now needed people to kick some reps and senator butt about the whole department of indian affairs (or whatever it's called these days). Looking up my rep & senator. I know there's a special website .gov for that.

You probably found this already, but for any other interested parties, this website gives you contact info on all your elected officials: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml
