Virtual Giving Tree 2020
In the weeks leading up to Christmas 2020, Danielle Fasthorse, Tovah Harjo, Stephanie C'Hair, Hellen Returnstowar, and Andrea Felter started a virtual giving tree via Facebook. Their goal was to help the children of the Wind River Reservation. They understood the devastation caused by the 2020 pandemic.
Parents and guardians sent their children's Christmas wish list to the Facebook page, where sponsors "adopted" a child and made their wishlist come true.
Tovah Harjo said this was their first year doing this event and they had to learn on the go. She said the team's commitment made it easier to workout the kinks.
"It was amazing that we were able to come together and help each other out. The parents' reaction was awesome, and it was great seeing the kid's faces light up. There were a lot of tears of joy. I'm happy we could assist in giving our communities/families a Christmas, whether it was big or small. Thank you to everyone in our community that got involved, and thank you to our sponsors," Harjo said.
With the Fort Washakie Fire Department's help, the group delivered presents to 89 families for a total of 338 kids. The giving tree included sponsors from Fremont County, Jackson Hole, Utah, Montana, California, and Washington. The Northern Arapaho Business Council sponsored the last of the children that didn't initially receive a sponsor.
