Dear Brothers and Sisters:
A question was raised with all the changes within the Nation… “Will there be a yearly support fund required of all the enrolled members?”
The answer was decided some time back, that because of the financial difficulties most are having to endure with cost of living and income not matching to balance the two.. RedNation will not require that of its people. It has been totally left up to our individuals and families, if they can send what they can throughout the year to help with their Nation support, the one time registration fee of the ten dollars would be all that is required.
Yes it DOES take monies to keep going, and is nice to have so we can stay up with the electric, internet, phones, office supplies and equipment, printing etc.
With us being a non-profit it is just that.. there is no profit. We do not sit on a big mound of monies coming in, it usually as most know goes right back out for all the above mentioned and then some. Donations are greatly appreciated of any amount..
Would like to interject this most precious story here that just happened recently..
Got a handmade card in the mail from this little boy the other day, it had a seperate letter from his mother, who said with tears in her eyes at the time, she did have to help her son with the spelling and writing because he was only six years old… On the front of it was a picture drawn in crayon, of a full head dressed plains Indian Chief hugging an Australian Aboriginal Chief with full body paint of his Nation.. above the heads in the bubbles of what they were saying to each other was… “We are the same!”, “We are real brothers!” and underneth at the bottom of the card it read.. “Mommy told me, because we are all children of God, that makes us all brothers and sisters!”
Opened the card up and on the inside was three very shiney new pennies, taped very carefully to the card.. written again in crayon it said this… ” One penny is for one of my sisters, one is for one of my brothers there, because they may not have any pennies to give, the other is from me to give to help out.”
