WINTER HOUSING AND PROPANE DRIVE


We are now campaigning strongly for funding to support our efforts to obtain used but still entirely livable house trailers that can serve as relief shelters through the extremely cold months,  and pellet stoves or propane to provide heat for the homeless and severely impoverished families on the Lakota reservations in South Dakota.

The living conditions on these reservations are by far the most difficult ones known today in the industrialized countries. With unemployment at a staggering 70+% on the Northern Great Plains reservations (http://www.indian.senate.gov/public/_files/January2820102.pdf) and recent severe cutbacks in tribal funding, elderly tribal members and families with children simply cannot ensure adequate housing or heating in the winter. Climatic conditions are extreme, with severe blizzards and temperatures that, with the wind chill factor, can plummet to as low as – 60¬įF.¬† To this climatic hardship is added housing that has been chronically sub-standard for decades, and recent wildfires on several reservations have compounded the problem by leaving more families completely homeless with very few places to go other than to crowd in with relatives.

Propane is the most widely-used form of heating on the reservations, but is quickly used up and its prohibitive costs and long delays in delivery mean that families may wait for days or even weeks without being able to refill their tanks. Death by freezing is frequent as families soon run out of alternatives, and children, elders, the disabled and the chronically ill are most at risk. House fires kill more as families try every solution, including burning rags in inadequate stoves, while death from CO2 poisoning is a very real possibility as families huddle in their cars with engines running in an attempt to keep warm. Due to the severity of the current economic situation, tribal governments are unable to assist, and federal funding is insufficient. 

An economical alternative to propane is to supply as many families as possible with biomass pellet stoves. For far less than the cost of refilling a 100-gallon tank several times a year, pellet stoves would provide excellent, low-cost heating ‚Äď and thus allow the families to allot more of what little income they may receive to necessities such as proper nutrition and warm clothing for the children. Not only would their lives be greatly improved ‚Äď lives would be saved.

We are asking you to support our project in any way you can. Please get the word out. We and the families concerned would be grateful if you could help us either by contributing towards the expense ¬†of hauling the trailer homes (fuel, permits) and the purchase of stoves and/or propane, or if you prefer, indicating where we might obtain stoves that we can send to families. Please also see our “donations” page for further information on how you can help. Your donations are tax deductible in the United States. All donations go entirely to funding this project.

By helping us to assist these families during the long winter ahead, you will have ensured a better future for them and their children. Thank you in advance on their behalf.

IT’S TIME TO LET LIVE , NOT PERISH


by David Anthony on Monday, September 17, 2012 at 3:42pm ·

LET THE PASSION IN YOUR HEARTS FOR THE PEOPLE, BURN BRIGHTER THAN THAT FIRE THAT DESTROYS THEM.

THE deadly FIRE BURNS THROUGH THE LANDS,  &  BEHIND IT CREEPS IN THE  MORE DEADLY silence of the bone chilling winter soon to arrive.

 

Some will watch and helplessly smell the smoldering remains of the addition to already existing poverty,  that most will never hear about and many more will not even care.

As the days turnover into new days, and the year folds into smaller bits of trials forgotten , the birth of possible new deaths of the frozen familiars may lay before us and ONLY THEN will we remember that there is much caring and sharing is needed, so to avoid the endless tears from the ones who are close enough to see, feel and smell the fiery bitter cold fumes of death.

Why do we need to take precautions after it’s ALWAYS TOO LATE?¬†

WHY CAN’T WE LOOK INTO THE RECENT PAST AND REMEMBER¬†THE LIVES THAT WERE LOST TO THESE EXACT CAUSES AND STAND TOGETHER TO MAKE BETTER THE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES BEFORE IT HAPPENS AS BAD AS THE LAST TIME?

IT IS TIME THAT WE ALL SEE THROUGH THE SAME EYES AND DO THIS AS A TEAM AND NOT AS INDIVIDUALS .

REMEMBER , MORE CAN BE DONE BY DOING IT TOGETHER RATHER THAN ON OUR OWN!

WE ALL MUST COME TOGETHER NOW, THIS MINUTE AND BEGIN THE TRAIL OF SURVIVAL FOR THOSE WHO SEEM TO BE AT THE HOPELESS END OF THEIRS!

This note is to open our hearts, eyes and noses. TO FEEL, SEE & SMELL what maybe drawing in our near future if we do not become the force that can help save some of the future possible victims from their frozen or fiery deaths.

Let’s¬† start rebuilding the lives of those who have lost all they ever had , where most of the world pay no attention too, or don’t give a damn about.

DON’T BECOME MOST OF THAT WORLD THAT DON’T CARE, AND BE A PART OF THE CLOSER FEW WHO ACTUALLY CARE:

JOIN US AT FREDDY & LITTLE MASSI CALLING CORP, ERC (EMERGENCY RELIEF CENTER) &AIM NEW YORK SG ,

BY HELPING US REACH OUT AND PRESERVE LIVES, RATHER THAN WATCH THEM PERISH BEFORE OUR VERY EYES .

THERE ARE FAMILIES WHO ARE AWAITING HOMES & THERE ARE TRAILER HOMES AWAITING FINANCING TO BE DELIVERED TO THESE HOMELESS FAMILIES…….

EVERY NATION LOOK AFTER THEIR OWN WHEN IN NEED, WHY CAN’T WE DO THE SAME?

JUST A SIMPLE DIME…


by Michelle W Bernhard on Friday, June 29, 2012 at 2:10pm ·

 
Dirty corner, busy street,
Dust around her dirty feet,
tears filling her hungry face,
broken life, all out-of-place.
Battered tin can in her hand,
filled with only hope, and sand
and unsaid pleas for … just a dime.
Hunger stops the heart, in time.
Blazing sun upon her head
burns pitiful words not said.
Passers-by pay not a heed
to this child’s thirst, to this soul’s need.
Eyes that burn and tongue that’s dry,
sad face turned to blazing sky…
Rising to her hurting feet
she looks for shade on burning street.
Empty can with not a dime.
Despair will kill a heart, in time.
In the shadow now she sits, 
quiet, unwanted, nowhere fits…
through her mind the pictures roll
of mother’s love when love could show.
Laughing memories in her head.
Evening comes… they find her dead.
For want of just a simple dime
we mourn a child, for all of Time.
 
Please help us to keep this from happening… for the love of the children.

Stepping up to the plate


By Michelle Bernhard

Before we go on with this post, please view the short video from this link:

hidden-america-life-in-las-colonias-29089087.html

Now then. What we see here is not in Mexico or another “underdeveloped” country; it is in the United States of America.

Not in the 1930’s. TODAY.

These are United States citizens. And they are not alone in their struggles. Today’s economy has brought many of the former “middle class” to their knees in terms of standard of living, and the “lower middle class” is struggling desperately to get by. The poor? they are disappearing silently in to the realm of the forgotten, doomed to try to survive in conditions no one should ever have to live in.

Deep South. Appalachia. Indian reservations. Mississippi Delta. McAllan, TX, San Bernadino, CA, Reading, PA, Camden, NJ, Flint, MI. And so many others. From inner cities to lonely backwaters, extreme poverty is the plague of today’s social structure. Its consequences? Undernourishment if not outright starvation, disease, lack of educational opportunity, lack of adequate shelter, lack of clean water, discrimination, hate crime, violence, drugs, alcohol… and pure unadulterated hopelessness. An environment that is unhealthy if not totally poisoned by industrial waste from companies that set up nearby because “nobody will mind if we produce here”… and nobody does ¬†because very few see the rampant cancer, the deformities, the despair brought about by uncontrolled factory and mining spillage.

How to help? Very simple РJUST STEP UP TO THE PLATE in any way you can. Help can be in the form of financial donations or it can be clothes, household goods, time, a pair of willing hands, a pair of reading glasses, a word of compassion, a letter to a newspaper or Congressman or state or local administration. Simply talking about these issues helps because it makes other people aware of them, and among those others may be some who can bring their assistance.

You would not want to live like those who live in such poverty. And maybe some of you who are reading this already do, and can tell us your story in the comments…

We at Freddy and Little Massi Calling Corp are stepping up to the plate, whenever and however we can.

Please join us. Thank you for all you do.

Thought for the day: You can always reach out to another to help. Financial assistence so a family may eat or find shelter. Some of your time to read to a child or take an elder to the market. A letter to fight an injustice. A hand to carry a load, a sympathetic ear (and a closed mouth) to listen with, a shoulder to cry on (and a box of Kleenex), or simply a smile and a kind comment. There are hundreds of ways to make another person’s life better. Don’t be afraid to use your imagination. And don’t be afraid to act. Just do it.

We at FreddyandLittlemassiCallingCorp already do…
