Water is life.

Thanksgiving this year is different for us. My husband is Native American. My mother raised me with a love of culture and diversity. Apart from a very select few who remain, we are all immigrants. Honor our First Peoples. Respect their history and right to safe water and sacred lands. It is the least we as a country can do. 

According to the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration:  Since 1986, there have been nearly 8,000 oil pipeline accidents in the U.S. resulting in $7 billion in damage. Also since 1986, pipeline accidents have spilled an average of 76,000 barrels per year or more than 3 million gallons. This irresponsible management of one natural resource repeatedly poisons another. 

For Thanksgiving, we're donating to the Standing Rock Sioux. Opt out of buying trendy tees that don't actually benefit the tribe and send aid directly

Be thankful for what you have and help those who are protecting what they need. 

Keep on keeping on,
