100 % of proceeds go to Adopt-A-Native-Elder, a wonderful organization based in Utah.
In the greatest food-producing nation on earth, several thousand Traditional Navajo Elders living on the Reservation face hunger and economic insecurity every day. The status of elderly Navajo is, to put it simply, poor.
Presently, over 700 Navajo Elders ages 75 to 100 are enrolled as adopted Elders in the Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program and more than 850 Elders receive program assistance. More than 5,000 people who live in poverty in remote locations on the Reservation receive some form of our aid.
The Navajo Nation (Naabeehó Bináhásdzo) is a Native American territory covering about 17,544,500 acres (roughly the size of West Virginia), occupying portions of northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico in the United States. This is the largest land area retained by a Native American tribe.
Adopt-A-Native-Elder (A.N.E.) is assisted by Dine' people who serve as coordinators in various parts of the reservation to help us determine the needs of the Elders in their own culture and lifestyle. Adopt-A-Native-Elder is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. We are not a religious or political organization. Many organizations exist to assist the Native Americans with the political issues they face. Our focus is on supporting the traditional Elders who desire to remain on their Lands, living in the traditional ways of the Dine'.
