Operating under the jurisdiction of a covenant with Creation.
Through the Traditional Ceremonies, Teachings, and Guidance of our Elders, we understand it is time to make a difference.
In order to systemically address issues of suicide, substance abuse, health disparities, and domestic violence, we must first address basic human necessities.
We gather blankets, coats, clothing and shoes; and purchase diapers, infant care products, hygiene products (laundry soap, soap, shampoo, deodorant, feminine products) underwear, and socks i.e. “warmth,” and deliver it to Native children and elders who are most in need.
We have established a reputation of doing as we say we will do.
Often the calls we receive are for emergency aid, including but not limited to: suicide intervention, utility assistance, diapers or infant care products from their respected ICW and WIC programs, domestic violence intervention, and more.
WITHOUT YOU WE CAN DO VERY LITTLE..
Here at Good Thinking 4 All Our Relations: we dedicate our lives to helping and supporting Native American children. We do this through deliveries of “Warmth” clothing, blankets, shoes and personal hygiene products. We also solicit monetary donations and purchase items that are needed yet not donated. We take the clothing, wash it, and sort it into groups. These are separated into boys or girls, and by size. These are stored until enough has been accumulated to share. Once we have a load we usually deliver in one of two ways. We drive them ourselves in our 14 foot Box van or ship the boxes by parcel post (Shipping costs 3 times the dilivery costs). The decision is made based on our available funds and the distance to those ones in need. Our goal is to help those with the greatest need first. Sometimes our lack of finances forces us to make tough decisions on where we can help.
When we contact a reservation we talk with the elders first, following ancestral protocols is of paramount importance to Good Thinking 4 All Our Relations.
We connect with an individual or family that lives on the reservation, which gives us a local ambassador and helps to direct distribution to those with the greatest need.
We would like nothing more than to end poverty and homelessness in “Indian Country, we realize poverty is very serious issue and getting Clothing and helping to keep warm through the winter keeps children alive long enough to work on addressing other issues. We also have big plans on how to help native people achieve self-sufficiency.
