Your donations make a difference!


For almost five years now, FLMCC has been active in bringing much-needed assistance to families and elders on the Native American Reservations in South Dakota and elsewhere who are undergoing financial hardship. From warm winter clothing and heating assistance to emergency food assistance, school July 2016supplies, and holiday toys for the children, your donations have allowed us to help several hundred families to get a little respite and relief from the worry of not being able to meet their children’s and families’ needs during difficult times.

We cannot stress enough how very important and appreciated your donations are in helping us to achieve our goals of ensuring that no family or elder is left to deal with lack of heat in the cold of winter, good winter clothing for school and everyday living, or necessary food when times are tough. And we cannot thank you enough for the generosity you have shown in supporting us in this mission.

Your donations are important; more, without them this work would not be possible. We hope you will continue to support us as we move forward in our mission to make sure no one in need is forgotten.

GETTING AHEAD FOR THE WINTER: SPACE HEATER DRIVE


You made FLMCC’s 2015 Space heater drive a success.

Thanks to your support and generosity we were able to ship enough space heaters for 14 families on the Pine Ridge and Standing Rock reservations in South Dakota.

These space heaters will help keep families warm as the cold sets in and be a complement to the more usual form of heating with propane. We hope the families will be able to enjoy a less stressful winter with this supplementary form of heating.

We want to extend our particular thanks to: Debbie and Ray Hirsch, Sharon Smith, Deborah Wright, Tara Brousseau, Anne Gale, Rene Dubois III, Anniemay Parish, and also to Kim Lawrence and her kind customers at Smoke Signal Gems, for their unfailing support and encouragement, as well as our gratitude to our anonymous donors and all our social media “sharers” whose support is an integral part of making this kind of project happen.

Many respectful thanks also to Oglala Lakota elder Jean Belt, her daughter Davidica Littlespottedhorse and all the family for their much-appreciated hard work and assistance in this project.

We are also beginning to ship good warm coats and other clothes, scarves, hats, and we are getting ready to assist with propane when needed. If you would like to help, please consider contributing to our shipping and propane fund. You can do so today by simply clicking on the “Donate” button at the top of the page. Your donations are tax-deductible in the United States. If you have gently-used clothes or other household things you no longer need, see our “Get involved” page for addresses of reliable contact people who will help get these goods to those who need them, or feel free to contact us.

Thank you for your support!

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.
