Christmas on the Reservation is here! As many of you know, I came across a world project called “Love Has No Color.”
It’s a world project designed to restore health and hope on an American Indian reservation in Montana. Not really sure what I was getting into, I’ve realized that this project has given me more purpose and passion than I have ever imagined. I want you to know that I wake up everyday knowing that we are making an incredible difference to people in GREAT need. Guess what? You are making a difference too!
I belong to a group of chiropractors called "The New Renaissance." It is a group of passionate chiropractors dedicated to bettering our planet through chiropractic. My mentors founded this world project in 2005 and since then, thousands of gifts have been donated to thousands of children. Also, we have restored a movie theatre, constructed a skate park and we are in the works of making a chiropractic clinic. This is Nobel Peace Prize worthy stuff!
So, what can we do to gain some inspiration and spread health? What can we do to gain some extra purpose and have more connection in our life? It’s time to give!
The reservation we are working with is the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Poplar, MT. Why the reservation, you ask? It’s a desolate reservation that has been unfortunately consumed with extreme sickness and poverty. Native American reservations have the highest rate of teen suicide. This is a sure sign of a hopeless society. No, not all reservations are rich because of casinos and certainly, they all don’t get free college educations.
Here is a two step-solution to gain some extra purpose and connection in your life:
1. Purchase a NEW gift of either sporting goods or athletic apparel and donate it to our office!
2. Hand pick someone that you know, tell them about chiropractic care and how it made a difference in your life. So many people do not realize the beneifts and are searching for greater health! Direct them towards a purpose-driven chiropractor.
Sounds like a win-win situation! Our community gets healthier and our Native brother and sisters all benefit!
