“Dear PoPville,

Friends of mine have decided to skip Christmas presents this year and instead are raising money to buy a truck to donate to Standing Rock Medic & Healing center. The family will spend Christmas driving it out there to support the water protectors.”

The fundraising page says:

“We are a family of 4 living in Alexandria VA. My wife and I live in a suburban community with children in high school. This winter we plan to drive a pickup truck up to the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council and donate it to the cause. This fundraiser will supply the funds to purchase the truck, snow tires, supplies and other things needed to complete this endeavor.

The protesters will continue their resistance throughout the winter. Now is the time to help. A 4WD truck is at the top of their list of needs.

Home

100% of all the funds raised will be spent on the acquisition of the vehicle and getting it ready with snow tires, block heater and other tasks to winterize it. Any excess funds will be used for supplies and equipment already on their donation list or given directly to the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council.

Once our fundraising goals are met we will provide updates on this page as to our progress.

Thank you.”
