is going to college, so they need dorm supplies: http://www.friendsofpineridgereservation.org/projects/RCHS_Class_of_2006_College_Dorm_Supplies.shtml

That's pretty good news, for the entire class of a rez high school to be going to colleges and universities. They deserve some helping hands, too -- don't you think?

I started looking around at the other sites posted on LJ, and discovered the Pine Ridge Reservation site. They post information about the Oglala Lakota College, which has a program to train people in the construction trades. They ask for donations so they can provide their graduates with the basic tools of the trade. It's easy enough to do, and here's the current list: http://www.friendsofpineridgereservation.org/projects/Tools_for_Oglala_Lakota_College_Construction_Graduates.shtml

Personally, I prefer to make donations of this type, as it allows the recipient to be empowered rather than to be become dependent on others. I only wish there was some way to donate anonymously, as that is considered to be a "higher" mitzvah than donating publicly (which is ostentatious and so, frowned upon in Judaism).
