Native American Elders need your help!

Buy your 100% organic cotton t-shirt to provide food, firewood, and warm merino wool socks to our Native American Elders

Giving Back to the People & Places that matter.

We invite you to join us in Giving Back to our Native American Elders, those who originally walked this amazing land we call America.  Walking The World has teamed with Adopt-A-Native-Elder to help support more than 600 traditional Native American Elders, all over 75, who live in the cultural and spiritual traditions of The Dine’ (Navajo) People.

We donate $5 from each shirt you purchase!

Current Challenge

These Native American Elders, all over 75, have been walking these American lands for many years.  But, as they age, it has become more difficult to support themselves on the Land in their traditional ways.  They often lack adequate food, firewood for warmth, and warm clothes.  Some, because of arthritis, can no longer weave their traditional rugs as a source of income to buy food.  Diabetes and reduced circulation mean constantly cold feet.  And, unspeakably, some, without adequate firewood in winter months, freeze to death.

This is unacceptable.  Personally, I’m committing to raise the funds necessary, in 2018, to ensure that every one of these Native American Elders has the food, firewood, and warm clothes, particularly socks, that they need.

But I can’t do this alone.  I need your help.  We have volunteers who will purchase the food, package it according to each Elder’s needs, and even transport it where needed.  Still, funds are needed to provide the needed food, firewood, and socks.

How You can Help

  1. Purchase one or more of our 100% organic cotton t-shirts.  We’ll donate $5.00 from each shirt sold to buy the necessary food, firewood, and socks.
  2. Wear your shirts on one of your adventures and send us a copy to show your support.  We’ll feature you on our site.
  3. Share this with everyone who believes it totally unacceptable for our Native American Elders to go hungry, lack adequate clothing, or freeze to death from a lack of adequate firewood.

Simply click on the link below to purchase your 100 % organic cotton tee.  And then wear it to show your support.


How we Meet The Challenge

Our goal is to provide one load of firewood, three food vouchers, and a pair of wool socks to each of the 600 Native American Elders supported by Adopt-A-Native-Elder.

The Details

Our shirts are made from 100% organic cotton to help ensure our environmental footprint is in harmony with the traditions of our Native American Elders.

Sizing for our tees is Unisex, so assume that they fit a bit more like men’s t-shirts. A sizing chart is provided on the order pages.

You can see a sample of our tees on this page, but to order, please click on the link below to be taken to a page where you can see the shirts and place your order.

To help ensure we’re able to meet our goals of providing food, firewood, and socks to our Elders, we’re running a series of 30-day campaigns. At the end of 30 days, we’ll print your shirts and get them out to you.

We would love to feature you wearing your Walking The World shirt, preferably with a photo taken in one of your favorite outdoor destinations.  Please send us your favorite photo with you in your Walking The World Shirt.

In Adventure – and Giving Back,
