I know I don't have many followers, but there are currently 48 people in the running for Alaskan Congress. I'd love for this to get notes just to spread the fun and hopefully let everyone know that even Santa is sick of American politics at this point.
UPDATE! Thank you to everyone who reblogged! As of 3/19, the Tuluksak community has had a few “regular” washer/dryers donated and as soon as the pipes unfreeze, they can be connected to a water source. Many thanks for everyone’s donations. They have potentially saved lives!
Any donations deemed “excess” have been gifted to surrounding nations also in dire need.
The #OperationTogo project is ending. CeeJay needs to get back to another project that was disrupted by this. Please message them on Twitter or see KooteenCreations on IG for a wealth of people and groups to follow regarding Indigenous rights, culture, and news!
A rural Alaskan Native community has lost its’ only potable water source as of January in freezing weather. The laundromat was the ONE community location to get clean water. They rely on river water and donations right now.
There is an Amazon wishlist with cleaning products, formula, small electric-free washers for elderly + disabled people, washing buckets and water-carrying buckets, and hand tools to cut through the ice in the river to access water, amongst other things.
The Tuluksak Native Community is a Yup'ik Tribal Government in Tuluksak, Alaska. They have a 30%+ positive COVID rate.
Please ignore the GoFundMe link right now. There is no way to access the funding as far as I know. Message CeeJay on Twitter ahead of time or direct funds to the Amazon Wish List, which can be sorted from lowest price to highest.
