Linda Rudin's Global Volunteers Fundraiser

Campaign has ended


In July, 2023, I will be heading to South Dakota to volunteer with the Sicangu Rosebud Sioux or to Montana to volunteer with the Blackfeet. Todd County, comprising the Rosebud Reservation, is the second poorest county in the nation. And, having volunteered with the Blackfeet for the last two years, they hold a very special place in my heart.

While working with the Blackfeet, I spent most of my time at Eagle Shield, their senior living center. I helped prepare, serve, or deliver their daily lunch to the Blackfeet elders. I also volunteered at their food pantry. There I prepared and delivered food boxes. The Blackfeet share the food throughout the county to anyone who is in need - even if they are not Blackfeet. If Global Volunteers is able to line up the logistics for the Rosebud reservation, I anticipate fulfilling a similar role.

The tribal community really touched me. They try really hard to look out for one another - especially the tribal elders. I am looking forward to going back and seeing and working with the Sicangu Rosebud Sioux  for the first time or the Blackfeet community again. Your donation will help me offset my program costs. I appreciate your support.

Global Volunteers' mission is to connect people worldwide to wage peace and promote justice through service. Our goal is to sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their communities, so they can realize the full promise of their human potential. Each Global Volunteer plays a significant role in positively impacting the people they serve and the communities they visit

Working on teams of up to 20 individuals, volunteers participate in one-to-three-week service opportunities where they create, nurture, and sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their families. Volunteers are welcomed into homes, classrooms, clinics, community centers, hospitals, orphanages, childcare centers, libraries, government offices, farm fields, and more on exceptional international service-learning programs providing essential services of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Volunteers work with and learn from and about local people who are making real change in their communities to help children grow and thrive.

By supporting volunteers' efforts, you contribute directly to the future success of children in partner communities. Your generous donation to your chosen volunteer ensures that these services continue year-round. Thank you for making this investment in the future of our world - our children!
