Please Help, Blackfeet Reservation buried in 20 foot snow drifts!
An area of Montana has seen record breaking snow and people cannot leave their homes. Some people are using snow mobiles to get food and medical supplies in and out of the area. This has been going on for months now and it just occurred to me I could invite Steemians to help.
There are TWENTY FOOT snow drifts in places. This is being caused by constant wind , pushing the snow into roadways and making it impossible to keep up with and plow through. Families are trapped, and some are living in hotels many miles away. Many of these people cant afford to be displaced in hotels. They need help.
One family was snowed in for three days because they were unable to open their doors. Others crawled out of their windows to get out of the house, he said. Ranchers have lost newborn calves.
I know people who are Blackfeet. This below is one of my friends post from Facebook:
"The Blackfeet rez has been in a state of emergency for almost two months, with some tribal members stuck in or outside of their homes, without running water, and without food. We haven't been able to check on or see or bring supplies to my gramma (luckily she's good at collecting cans & her phone line works) because the roads to Browning are too dangerous . FAST Blackfeet is raising funds to feed and provide services for those starving &in need through their fiscal sponsor Nourish the Flathead, all donations will go to the Blackfeet, please donate if able! Btw it's tax deductible"
I will donate whatever earnings from this post to this cause as well.
So either go to the link and donate USD, or spread word and upvote to help this cause. Resteem, and if you have better tag ideas for me that would be great too. Thank you!
