THE STORY:

LOVE HAS NO COLOR wrote -

It may come as a surprise to some, but kids live in third world conditions right here in our country. Hideous living statistics on the Fort Peck Native American Reservation include crime, drugs, alcohol, child abuse, teen pregnancy, domestic violence, poverty, disease, unemployment, and undernourishment that we would expect in turbulent places around the globe like Zimbabwe, Somalia, Gambia, etc. Investing in these kids is a way out of this extreme hopelessness for good. The inalienable rights of these kids must be restored now. These problems with Native American kids will not go away until we all unite to bring positive change. For over 10 years now, Love Has No Color has been bringing health, hope and dignity to the kids on the Fort Peck Reservation. This summer at our annual Boot Camp & Fun Day events we are adding a very special Day Camp for these kids. We will be having professional athletes, tribal elders, doctors, teachers, an Auschwitz survivor and many more coming together for one common cause…to awaken a sense of possibility and hope in these kids. Each kid will be immersed all day in activities ranging from basketball, street hockey, traditional tribal values, customs and language, fitness initiatives, and mindfulness training. Upon graduating at the end of the Day Camp, each kid will be presented with a backpack full of school supplies. Also, each kid will receive a supply of high-quality, non-perishable food to take home to share with their families. Many of these kids do not eat three times a day and without high quality food, the ever present danger of extreme hopelessness tightens its grip. Having a summer camp experience like this will be a defining moment and swing the tide for many of these youths to make better life choices and decisions. Native Americans have been often referred to as America’s Forgotten People. This camp will celebrate, recognize and honor all those in attendance. There has never been a summer camp like this and with your help, you will be a part of making history.
