2. Hanson Lee

I will be returning to Standing Rock using my construction and engineering background to answer the spiritual leaders’ call to build up to 300 heating devices--using junkyard materials--for teepees, kitchens, toilets as the bitterly cold North Dakota winter rushes in.  My “Buddhist Tinkerers Troupe” is leaving the warmth of San Francisco Saturday, December 3rd.

Winter is rapidly approaching so the need is urgent.  The need is for funds to purchase necessary equipment and to transport them to North Dakota.
