The fourth fundraiser is called Christmas on the Reservation. BFC decorates their office for Christmas and collects gifts for the Native American children in Montana. A group of Chiropractors called The New Renaissance started a non-profit organization in 2005 called Love Has No Color. Sadly, the Native American children live in Third World conditions and often do not have enough food or clothing. Deb Fick, a BFC's former CA, said, "Seeing the kids run for free shoes was eye-opening when we visited Fort Peck in 2012. Seeing first hand all of these children in need just made me want to do more. Going to Fort Peck to give out the gifts in December 2013 and 2015 was gratifying to see how much the kids appreciate our efforts. We made their Christmas!"
When LHNC began 13 years ago, donations went towards building out a movie theater and the Chiropractic Clinic. The entire building was condemned at that time. Seven years of work and hundreds of volunteers later, both were completed. Since then, the kids have a social meeting pace that provides protection from dangerous influences like gangs, drugs and crime. Food is often provided for the children at the movie theater. Last year, in 2019, a 100% of donations to LHNC went towards the preservation and maintenance of the theater. Those donations provided a safe haven for the kids on the reservation. Thank you to everyone who has participated since LHNC began!
Chiropractors and their practice members from all over the country have the opportunity to visit the Fort Peck Reservation and hand out the presents that were collected through the months of October and November. To learn more about Love Has No Color, please visit: www.savethereservation.org.
