Thank you for your support!


We at FLMCC would like to show our gratitude to Kim Lawrence of Healing Smoke Gems and her customers for their strong support of our work. Through donations supplied by Healing Smoke Gems we have been able to help many families on the Native American reservations who otherwise would have had to wait a long time to get propane and utilities for heating and other daily needs.

Your support is greatly needed and very much appreciated in our mission to come to the assistance of those in need of emergency assistance with basic everyday needs.

We need your support!


WE CANNOT DO THIS ALONE. TEAM EFFORT AND DONATIONS ARE THE KEY INGREDIENTS TO OUR EFFORTS. Everyday we get requests for assistance & too often we have to turn down some and prioritize help which sometimes seem unfair. Please join us to get this done right.

Now is the time to build up the team


We at Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp have always insisted that we were a team. And our team has always been simply amazing. We are so proud to say that since January 2012, YOU, our supporters, have helped in all your different ways to keep so many children and elders warm in the cold Gibbons Thanks Turkeyof winter.  That YOU have made it possible to prevent people from being evicted and becoming homeless. That YOU have contributed each in your manner to school supply and holiday Toy and Turkey drive10882177_913410548671286_2316435114483525430_ns and to countless numbers of incredulous, happy smiles and shining eyes on the faces of countless numbers of children and parents.

From the Rez to the inner city (and even to other countries on a few occasions), YOU, our supporters, have done all these things. Yes, you! You’ve stood with FLMCC in the winter cold when elders had no heat – and you came through with what was needed to keep them from freezing. You’ve crocheted and sewn and collected and folded and packed and shared information to others on social media. You’ve been with us in your hearts – and sometimes even in person – at cultural events, in Christmas greetings, for fundraisers and for shipment upon shipment of warm shipment 12 12 2014clothing and baby food and Pampers. You’ve been with us in the worst of times and in the very best of times. And you can be sure that the People are extremely grateful for your efforts. YOU, our supporters, are a blessing to so many.

FLMCC has now entered into its fourth year, and we are offering an alternative process to raise the funds so needed to maintain our momentum and help as many in need as possible. Crowdfunding is a way to let our supporters get involved in whatever way they think they can do best. It can be simply by sending a donation, or it can be by creating a donor page and fundraising to assist FLMCC in a particular project. It’s safe and secure, through verified and approved channels. And by opting for the CrowdRise platform, getting involved is easy, and it’s fun! Like any fundraising effort, the word must be got out to an ever-increasing circle of people. That’s why we are asking you, our faithful supporters, to regularly reach out to your circles, and ask them to do the same for you. Email, Tweet, and share, share, share, this message on Facebook and other social media sites. Talk to your family and friends, and their friends and let it ripple wherever it will go.

The only limit is the amount of enthusiasm you put in. Remember, there ARE footprints on the moon.

school giveaway 2 july 4 2015We thank our supporters who have already contributed to our fundraising efforts on  CrowdRise and we invite you all to visit  the FLMCC CrowdRise fundraising page, to see for yourself what can be done.

FOR FLMCC, YOUR CONTINUING ASSISTANCE MEANS WE CAN HELP MORE CHILDREN AND ELDERS


June has arrived and with it the long days of summer and school vacation. It’s a good moment to take stock of Freddy and Little Massi Calling Corp’s activities over the past few months and look forward to our activities for the coming months as well.

Since January 1st, 2015, FLMCC has directly assisted 19 elders and families with the payment of heating and electricity bills, emergency rental assistance, and travel expenses for medical reasons. We have also purchased a small stock of school supplies towards our 2015 School Drive. To that was added the shipment / distribution of over 600 lbs of clothing and foodstuffs to families in need.

All of this activity was made possible exclusively through the generosity of our supporters, to whom we are infinitely grateful.

As we move into summer, we are still receiving requests for assistance with electrical bills and rent, and we still have hundreds of pounds of donated clothing and supplies to ship. However, we are currently forced to put requestors on a waiting list due to lack of funds, and we sincerely regret this situation. Loss of power places related extra burdens on families in financial difficulty. Food is spoiled due to refrigerators that no longer run; laundry cannot be done at home; there is no warm water for bathing infants and young children; and electric stoves and other home appliances cannot be used. Moreover, during the hottest days of summer, loss of power means loss of air conditioning and fans, and thus a potential danger for fragile persons. And failure to pay the rent means eviction, pure and simple.

All of these issues all place more financial strain and anxiety on families with small children or grandchildren who are surviving on a frayed shoestring budget and who may have to try to get help from other relatives with equally complicated budgets.

Emergency financial needs are not limited to the cold of winter. Cuts in administrative funding, loss of employment, illnesses, and natural disasters – these emergencies know no season.

There are also our ongoing projects: the School Drive to provide as many children of less fortunate families as possible with the necessary pens, paper, notebooks, book bags etc., so they can start the 2015-16 school year properly equipped; our Blanket Drive to help provide warm blankets to the homeless; and of course shipping clothing and other basic needs.

For more information about our activities, please don’t hesitate to visit the different pages in our blog. We have received several very kind testimonials for our work over the past few months.

FLMCC’s purpose is to provide urgent assistance to families with small children and to elders in need, as often as possible and as far as our means will allow. We are counting on your continuing kindness to help us to make this consistently possible, 365 days a year. We ask that you please continue to share our information to others, and we thank you for any contributions you can make to our efforts. Every donation is important and very much appreciated.
