November, the month of Thanksgiving, has arrived. November also brings with it Native American Heritage Month (aka American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month), which is fitting, as the inspiration for Thanksgiving was originated in their honor. The Pilgrims hosted a harvest celebration to say “Thank you” to their Native American benefactors, who had literally saved them from almost certain death during their first winter in the new world.  So yes, fitting indeed that we officially celebrate and support our American Indian and Alaska Native brothers and sisters during the month of November.

Wondering just how you and your company can help contribute to this dynamic group and their historic traditions and say “Thank you!” during this wonderful month of Thanksgiving? Well, wonder no more. 

With the ease of Pledgeling, just one quick click HERE brings you to a cornucopia of amazingly diverse Native American nonprofit groups and associations to get involved with. There are a variety of worthy Native American nonprofit organizations from which to choose from – from the New Native Theatre, which is dedicated to creating, producing and performing cultural and social justice plays, as well as offering theatre training, to the Protect the Wolves Sanctuary, which is dedicated to the protection of their sacred Wolf and his brothers the Grizzly and Buffalo.  If the arts and animals don’t speak to you, then how about something like STEM Advantage?  Dedicated to mentoring, preparing and inspiring young women to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
