It appears best and safest to give directly to the official Navajo Nation Covid-19 Relief Fund through their governmental web site. They take monetary and non-monetary donations. Donations are tax deductible. Some other fundraising activities may or may not be legitimate, and may take a percentage.
At the Donate Button linked page it explains:
“Navajo Nation COVID-19 Relief Fund
The Navajo Nation COVID-19 Fund has been established to help the Navajo Nation respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the Navajo Nation’s only official COVID-19 fundraising and donation effort.
The Navajo Nation is accepting monetary and non-monetary donations to address immediate medical and community needs. Charitable donations to the Navajo Nation are deductible by the donor for federal income, estate, and gift tax purposes…” Read more here, including
A former planning commissioner allegedly threw his cat while he was attending an online business meeting. Demand that this animal be removed from this person’s home and that rescuers do everything in their power to find this sweet cat a new home if it is found that this senseless and thoughtless act was committed.
Florida residents are more than happy to trade their stay-at-home outfits for their swim gear now that some beaches in the state have reopened. After a month-long lockdown because of the COVID-19 outbreak, many Floridians are getting their dose of sunshine by the seaside.
Daniel Uhlfelder, an attorney from the state, is hitting the beaches, too, but he isn’t there to take a dip; he’s there to protest their reopening, which he believes is premature. And he’s doing so complete with a Grim Reaper costume: a raggedy black robe, a black cloth to cover his face, and a scythe.Twitter
The macabre outfit was his way of making people reconsider going to the beach.
“The Grim Reaper represents death. This is a deadly virus. It’s a global pandemic,” he told ABC13.
Uhlfelder is an advocate for public beach access in Florida, even clashing with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, whose Panhandle home was parked on a private beach. This time, however, he thinks allowing anyone on the beach amid a pandemic is a dangerous mistake.
“We aren’t at the point now where we have enough testing, enough data, enough preparation for what’s going to be coming to our state from all over the world from this pandemic,” he told CNN.
Wielding a scythe, Uhlfelder traveled to the beaches around Walton County, Florida, that have reopened ahead of the state’s planned May 4 “Phase 1“ reopening. This initial reopening will allow restaurants and retailers to operate at 25% capacity. Bars, salons, and gyms will remain closed until further announcement.
He said the beaches he visited last Friday were “very crowded”.
“I know how beautiful and attractive our beaches are. But if we don’t take measures to control things, this virus is going to get really, really out of control,” he said.
Aside from urging people to go home, the protest is also an effort to bring in funds for the campaigns of Democratic candidates, Phil Ehr and Christy Smith.
On March 20, the ‘grim reaper’ attorney filed a suit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis explaining that the leader’s unwillingness to issue a statewide mandate closing down beaches put Floridians at risk of being infected with the coronavirus. However, this was dismissed by Leon County Circuit Judge Kevin Carroll in April. He said that it’s in the governor’s discretion how he would handle emergencies, according to the state’s constitution.
This isn’t the first time the attorney has pulled a stunt to get people off the beaches during a pandemic. Last month, he traveled to Florida wearing a less grim outfit – a paintball costume – to promote social distancing, according to NBC News.
He said a woman told him that he was “scaring people,” to which he responded, “OK, that’s good.”
“If people are scared, then they’ll leave. I want to go back to normal as soon as possible, too, but opening our beaches too early is not the way to do this,” he reasoned.Twitter
There are nearly 35,000 coronavirus cases and 1,314 deaths recorded in the state of Florida, according to Johns Hopkins University.
DeSantis defended the reopening of beaches, citing a study conducted by the Department of Homeland Security about sunlight’s ability to kill the virus.
“The DHS study said that sunlight rapidly killed the virus in aerosols, and it said that outdoor daytime environments are lower risk for transmission of the virus than indoor environments,” he said. “In terms of surfaces, when a virus may be left on a surface DHS study concluded that sunlight kills the virus quickly, and that the virus is less stable overall at higher temperatures and higher humidity.”
There is no written report in existence for this study yet, although the results are being submitted for peer review and publication in scientific journals.

“While some [commercial pesticide removal treatments] sound great, their ingredients can sometimes list an ironically high amount of chemicals…”
Whenever possible check with the latest Environmental Working Group (EWG) Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce and purchase organic produce for the top pesticide residue containing fruits and vegetables. All produce should be thoroughly washed prior to eating but for non-organic produce use these recipes to make your own pesticide remover. Why bother? Many pesticides are oil-based so simply washing with water is often not enough to remove the pesticide residue. In addition, non-organic pesticides may also contain antibiotics and both non-organic and organic pesticides may contain MSG. These pesticide-removing recipes (and several variations on them) can be readily found on the Internet; they are free of the unwanted synthetic chemicals—and costs—of commercial versions and super easy to…
Extensive research was done seeking a vaccine for SARS-CoV (SARS Coronavirus). We are now on SARS-CoV-2. They reportedly opted to not call it SARS-2 so as not to scare people. But, they should have scared people, and then perhaps it would have been taken more seriously, and not been allowed to spread. Vaccines have saved lives. But, they can and have created illness/made diseases worse, as explained further below. Americans, especially, need to beware with an on-the-make, untrustworthy President and administration. A Covid-19 vaccine – especially a fast-tracked one – could be dangerous. Thus, we volunteer the armed Michigan protesters for the first shots, along with the “challenge” of Covid-19 exposure. They can be the primate guinea pigs. Then they may get holes in their lungs to go with holes in their heads and hearts. If you want to protest, call and write your officials. The best way to avoid…
This column does not constitute medical advice. Check with your doctor. Many nostrums are being recommended, with varying justification, to reduce the harm from the Chinese virus. Some, like hydroxychloroquine, have side-effects and should only be taken if prescribed; others, like remdesivir, work (if at all) only during the early stages of disease; others, like the BCG virus against TB, have not yet been subjected to clinical trials.
However, early studies showed an interesting result, which the Marxstream media lazily attributed to capitalism?s imagined failures: the darker your skin, the more your risk from the infection. In Britain, all of the first ten doctors to die from Covid-19 were dark-skinned.
The pandemic has struck most severely above 35N (editorial in Aliment. Pharm. Therap., and Marik et al. 2020), just as flu tends to end as summer comes. When the skin is exposed to the…
