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.

Food and clothing assistance needed


food supplies June 28 2016

A few weeks ago, Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp assisted a grandmother in South Dakota, Dollie Red Elk, with her utilities bill so that she could recover her service and be able to cook and have hot water again. Dollie contacted us this week to thank everyone again for this help and say that she had been able to make arrangements to help her keep the bill covered in the future, but that this had left her with very little for groceries until her next social security check arrives at the end of July. $200 in food stamps do not go far to meeting the nutritional needs of growing children; there is a food pantry where she can get some supplies this month, but with a 7-year old girl and two teen grandsons in her charge, she feared she would  not be able to meet the family’s grocery needs or the coming month. Your donations will allow us to provide a little assistance with groceries so that Dollie can make sure the children get nutritious meals every day until she gets back on her feet.

We have also had a request for assistance with clothing for a single father on the Pine Ridge Reservation who has four children aged 7 to 13. He and the children are currently homeless and any help you may be able to provide so that we can ship a few clothes to tide the family over would be much appreciated. If you have clothing you think might be suitable, please feel free to leave a message on our Facebook Page.

You can make a secure, tax-deductible donation on our Home Page (PayPal buttons at the top and bottom of the page) or by clicking on the “Donate Now” button at the top of our Facebook Page. Or if you prefer you can mail a check to the address in the image at the top of this page. And if you shop on Amazon, please consider making Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp your preferred charity through Amazon Smiles!

Thank you all so much for your help! It is so very appreciated!

 

 

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.
