OXYLENT is a proud sponsor of Be The Shift
February 1st, 2010: South Dakota's Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe declared a state of emergency after a severe ice storm devastated the reservation. The storm toppled more than 3,000 power poles and left 13,000 people without power, heat, or water. In addition, the area’s water system is outdated and operating at capacity, leaving the tribe no room for economic expansion and preventing its housing authority from building new homes or any new development. The system is keeping an impoverished nation impoverished, which is acerbating the very poor economy of the area with 86% current unemployment rate.
Actors from the Twilight Saga and other celebrities have been working with United Global Shift, to create a project called Shift the Power To The People, whose mission is to empower people to create sustainable, lasting change in their communities and countries. To bring awareness of the current issues and conditions, Twilight Saga cast members and celebrities gathered early June 14 at popular Los Angeles club Industry, along with over 500 guests mostly representing entertainment industry and Native American tribes who attended to support the Be the Shift campaign.
