Hello wonderful local, national, and international supporters of the Cleveland 5!!!
We have been getting amazing support from news outlets, blogs, and organizations across the country! Several groups are sharing the story of the Cleveland 5 with their networks to ask for support and donations. Check out the MEDIA COVERAGE section to see some of the new articles. If you would like information to share with your local community, please contact us (info on how in the SUPPORT page). In other great news, the Bay Area ABC is re-posting content from the Cleveland 5 Justice website to share with their community. Thanks Bay Area ABC!!! Our love and gratitude to you. Check it out here: http://bayareaabc.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/a-website-for-the-cleveland-5...
We still need lots of support from the National Community. We have raised over $6, 000.00, but need to get to AT LEAST $60,000 ASAP to hire lawyers, Para-legals, investigators, audio experts, and other specialists! Please check out our SUPPORT section to donate, or for ideas for fundraising in your hometown!
The 5 still need letters of support, information, news, whatever you can send them! Here's some ideas: Send photos of your group that is throwing a fundraiser! Send photos of what your local occupation is doing! Send poetry! Send recent news and blog articles! Send jokes! Send bed time stories! Even if you never met any of the Cleveland 5, they would love to hear from you. See how in the SUPPORT section. And while you're there, donate to their Commissary fund, so they have paper and stamps to send you a letter back. All 5 need support and love, but Anthony and Joshua have gotten the least letters and visits :( Lets change this!
We're still currently working on posting more legal documents and information on how hearings are going. Stay tuned! More letters from the 5 on their way.
Hello wonderful, amazing, activists, supporters, friends and family. I am very pleased today to announce that we have raised a total of $ 6,135.00 in donations to our legal fund!!! Thank you all who donated or called friends and family to help our fundraising campaign. Congratulations!!!
Unfortunately, we are still quite a long ways away from our fundraising goals. The first step is still raising $20, 000 to retain Cleveland lawyer Terry Gilbert. We will be continuing our fundraising after this for further lawyer, investigator, specialist, and court fees. We raised over $6, 000 in one week! Lets keep it up, and top this week with last week.
Wondering how you can help? Donate! Can't donate? That's okay too. Organize your own fundraiser! Some ideas for fundraising are throwing a benefit dinner/potluck with your friends, organizing a dance party, throwing a concert, and asking your friends and families for support.
The 5 still would love visitors and letters - the more love they get, the better! See the "Support" section for more information.
