  • Comments Off on Support The Navajo People During COVID-19 On GoFundMe

I don’t have to tell you there are a lot of people suffering right now due to COVID-19. The politicians on both the state and national level seem to be controlling the narrative at this point, but below the surface there are a lot of people facing financial hardship and general suffering. That’s why I’m bringing this GoFundMe to my readers attention. The GoFundMe campaign is for the Navajo People, Tsé deeshgizhnii. Your support will provide much needed supplies to the tribe.

The GoFundMe campaign was established by Lindison Yazzie Webb who is Navajo. Lindison was born in Tsabiikiin, grew up in Kaibeto and Page, and has a connection to the Dine’, it’s in his blood, the Tsédeeshgizhnii and the Táb??há.

Please consider supporting the campaign today:

Whenever I hear about someone needing help and feeling overwhelmed because of the great need I think of the following story:

“A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement.

She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”

The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied,

Well, I made a difference for that one!”

The story illustrates the importance of doing your part and not worrying about how large the problem or need is. If each person dos just a small job helping it adds up and we can solve seemingly insurmountable problems. You can make a difference in the Navijo Tribe today on their GoFundMe. Your funds will go towards purchasing food, water, cleaning supplies, hygiene, sanitization supplies, and logistical support (renting trailer, gasoline).

Navajo Supplies

Supplies include:

– Water
– Flour
– Beans/rice (bagged)
– Canned veggies
– Canned meats
– Toothpaste and dental hygiene products
– Personal hygiene
– Cleaning supplies
– Hand sanitizer

Goal

The goal of the campaign is $10,000 and I’m happy to report as of May 26th they are 33% towards their goal. The Navijo Tribe still has a long way to go, but I’m glad to see this campaign is gaining traction. Donations as little as $3 will go a long way, anything helps in this case.

Conclusion

Lindis who created this GoFundMe campaign is a Navajo disabled US Army veteran, a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and presently works in the live entertainment industry. They have been self-funding most of this but wanted to try crowdsourcing to make a bigger impact. Please consider supporting the GoFundMe campaign today and support the Navijo people.
