Exclamation Fire victim needs your help!!!

On Dec. 27th, 2006 the first of many wildfires hit Seminole County Oklahoma taking 22 homes in it's path. Just 2 days after Christmas these families lost everything, those who were not home when the fires started were not allowed back to their homes to recover ANYTHING because the fires were already so involved.

Aid quickly came from the Red Cross, Feed the Children, Salvation Army and FEMA. As you can imagine, some things just cannot be replaced.

The Henneha family was one of the unfortunate families to have lost everything. Their daughter Brianne is 12 and dances southern cloth and fancy shawl and is ready for the summer powwows to arrive. She is 1/8 creek, 1/4 Mississippi Choctaw and 5/8 Seminole. Brianne is an 8th grade honor student, softball and basketball player as well as a track runner. She lost all of her Christmas gifts, family photos, dance clothes, all of it. Through it all, she told her parents her one wish is to dance again.

I am quickly doing my best to help her gather pieces to make an outfit. We are needing any donations that will help get her dancing again, she doesn't care what style, just to be in the arena. Shawl, skirt, mocs, hair ties, anything.

ITEMS DO NOT HAVE TO BE NEW. When you have lost absolutely everything, anything is greatly appreciated!!

She is 114 pounds about a size 5. And wears a womens size 9 shoe. Even if items are big I'm sure we can make them work.
