Digital Blue Studios and TheHardcoreSource.com Partner For Holiday Gift
November 14, 2003 (Chatsworth, CA): With the holiday season fast
approaching, two Valley-area adult businesses have partnered up to do a
good deed for charity. Skye Blue’s Digital Blue Studios and Brian
Upgraft’s TheHardcoreSource.com have teamed together to organize a toy
and gift drive designed to benefit Indian reservations across the U.S.!
“Brain Upgraft and I share a mutual love and respect for Native American
Indian Culture, particularly that of the Eastern & Western Shoshone
Indians, and the Northern Arapaho,” says Blue. “He’s been doing the toy
and gift drive for over 10 years now, and this year I was invited to
Blue and Upgraft are looking for new toys, clothes, shoes, sporting
equipment and anything else that may be of interest or use to children
under 18 years-old. For those in an extra giving mood, Blue notes that
the tribe’s elders are in need of blankets, socks, scarves and gloves.
Upgraft will deliver the donations to the reservation along with Blue,
who is donating her studio space as the drop-off depot for donations.
Those in need of a non-profit number for tax deductions can contact
either Blue (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Upgraft
(email@example.com) for further info.
“There is much need that is publicized outside of our wonderful Country,
which can lead us to forget about the needs here in our own back yards,”
says Blue. “Most Americans are under the impression that the government
pays Native Americans to be on these reservations, but that is very
untrue. A lot of reservations have a 75-80% unemployment rate, and
around the holidays it’s difficult on the families because they have to
decide whether to buy toys for their children or firewood and coal for
heat. Having very little running water on the reservation and having to
battle the elements of Mother Nature during the winters by walking to
the water pumps and outhouses, the needs here are high and attention
from most media and our government very low.”
