Fundraising for Richard Lonewolf Survival School
Organized by: Wild Willpower PAC
This is a very special fundraiser for a very special teacher and U.S. Army veteran, Cherokee Elder Richard "Lonewolf" Legan.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to acquire funds to print his first 180 page textbook which features over 240 color photos & step-by-step instructions on "how to process wild plants & trees for their edible, medicinal, & utility uses", as well as many other very useful "wild living skills"; the book is called More Valuable Than Gold.
Now, this book was written by a man who not only served in the United States Army during the Cold War Era and in Vietnam, but he also taught students on ethnobotany & wilderness survival here in the Kern River Valley his entire life. His students have ranged from kindergartners through high schoolers, church groups, Boy & Girl Scouts of America, colleges & universities, U.S. military units, & many many others, so we feel very blessed to now have the websites up & the new book "ready to print" to help share this important practical knowledge with people everywhere. You're welcome to view some of Lonewolf's credential letters & awards, & also to read articles about him HERE, & there are several great videos of him teaching that you can watch HERE. We only need $1000 to get the new book printed, & proceeds from book sales will then help us to film many more videos with him AND finish producing the sequel to "More Valuable Than Gold" that is already in the works.
ABOUT THIS FUNDRAISER:
Please flip through the photos on this fundraiser and on the "book description page" to read some of the pages of the new book so you'll know why we're so passionate about "getting this information out there". Once we raise $1000, we'll be printing books & they'll be available on the sites so we can get this movement LIFTED! We really appreciate contributions &/or just sharing this fundraiser with your friends & family with some supportive words to help make this happen. Everyone wants to help Native Americans & everyone wants to help veterans, & supporting this fundraiser either financially or verbally is a great way to do both.
ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:
More Valuable Than Gold teaches vital "lost knowledge" that people of every culture really should know in order to live more abundant & healthy lives- things like "how to make acorns & buckeye nuts into flour", "how to make fire out of sticks in the forest- which types of woods to use", "how to make a a water purifier using an oak tree", "over 20 practical uses of pine trees", & much, much more. Did you know there's SIX edible parts on a cattail plant!?!? And they're TASTY!! C'mon-- this is some awesome knowledge! There's also a 6 page "native traditional medicines" index in the back of this very user-friendly book! More Valuable Than Gold will help open peoples' eyes & see the world differently, helping to raise peoples' appreciation of Native American culture and the real value of our rich, beloved wilderness areas here in America and beyond. You will never look at your local wilderness the same!
Thank you so much for your support! Please help us lift this fundraiser by sharing it through your networks with supportive words.
Sincerely & In Good Faith,
