For the Children

Hillsboro, ND Campaign 26290

Non Profits & Charities - Campaign

Roland Morris, a father of 100% Minnesota Chippewa heritage, born and raised on the Leech Lake Reservation, began speaking out against tribal crime and corruption in the late 90's out of concern for the welfare of extended family. After creating a simple webpage, other families began writing to him from across the country, telling him their stories. Some asked for help.

The Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare, a national advocacy, was born.

Educating Congressmen, Governors and State Legislators as to how laws giving tribal leaders increased power have negatively affected families across the United States is part of what we do. And we do it on a shoe string. That is because no one in our organization takes a salary. We know how to be frugal, don't mind being frugal, and are doing this because SOMEONE has to stand up and honestly defend the children and families.

The Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare, founded in February 2004, is a national non-profit Christian ministry and family advocacy. CAICW has ministered with music and teaching at churches in the U.S. and Canada as well as a children's home and street ministry in Mexico.

CAICW's family advocacy is both judicial and educational, as well as a prayer resource for families and a shoulder to cry on.

The $500 we are raising funds for covers most of a years’ worth of office supplies – toner, envelopes, paper, stamps, etc. We are a small outfit. If we are blessed with more – it will be for the legal fund. We get several requests a year for assistance from families.

So - if you shop Schwan's anyway - this won't alter your cost or budget. You donate simply by inserting "Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare" in the little fundraiser space.

Schwan's foods will give 20% of your product purchase and 40% of your eGift Card purchase (one per customer, per campaign) back to our campaign and you'll get great food for your friends and family!

If you haven't tried Schwan's before - their Home Service has hundreds of high-quality products, including USDA choice meats and Grade A vegetables, flash frozen at the peak of freshness, conveniently delivered right to your door. :)

Please share this with anyone who you think might be interested.

Thanks for your support!
