Comment from: rdautumnsage
"Thank you! Somehow I knew we would take care of our own. I know from my own journal a number of people stepped foward and said they sent contributions. In the end it's about people caring for one another. You don't need to be a Native to care. Having compassion isn't a skin condition. (Hugs) Indigo
As no National Network touched it!!!!!!!!!
It started with one little E-Mail to Carlos.
Then to our Blogs, Journals, Web pages and our Group Sites.
Then finally ones paid attention to the Fire Stories coming out of Nevada.
Now TV News In Idaho is playing catch up after it is almost over
So we have come to realize we need ONE WELL READ BLOG that will cover News of Nations needing help for all to check in on!
Back to the Nation:
What cattle that are still alive, with their grass lands burned to a crisp, they need to buy extra food for those cattle now!
Do you think that will come cheap? I don't think so!
Could you feed a whole town and cattle on nothing?
So even with a tight budget with these monies coming in, this will be a story in itself. To make it through the Winter?
As Carlos stated; "It was a great Loss of the Paiute economic infrastructure during the fire.
You must realize the reservation is very isolated, 100 miles in all directions from the nearest town on a little two lane road, definitely off the beaten path.
The fire has ravaged their ability to be self sufficient, killing cattle and other small industries that once supported this village."
What money they had, they spent all of it on dry ice, regular ice, bottled water and other suppies for over 1500 people when they could get through the fires or was allowed to go through.
Stories were that the Red Cross had helped them at the begining?..... Not!...... That was their own money that bought that!
Then the Red Cross themselves said, "Oh they have everything, they don't need any help." Yeah Right!
