Wow. Donations tripled through Jan 1st
By Lorraine Reitman. Bradley Manning Support Network. December 27, 2012.
We have amazing news. A week ago, we told you that a generous anonymous donor offered to match donations in December, meaning that donations through the end of the year would be automatically doubled up to $10,000. Since then, we’ve heard from another donor, a long-time, Bay Area queer anti-war activist who wants to be identified as just “Henry.” Henry has offered to also match donations in December, up to $10,000.
This means that every dollar you donate to the Bradley Manning defense fund before January 1, 2013 will be tripled:
You have already raised enough money to hire Brad a top-notch civilian attorney. And thanks to your work, Brad has been freed from the torturous solitary confinement conditions.
But we’ve got one more big responsibility ahead of us: paying for Bradley’s court martial. If we can raise $10,000 in December, those funds will be tripled to equal $30,000 – reaching nearly half of our total fundraising goal for the legal costs of the court martial. Can you help out?
We can do this, if we all pitch in. As we head into the court martial in 2013, let’s make sure Bradley Manning gets the very best defense.
Please donate today. Let’s raise the money we need to cover his legal costs and advocate for his cause in the court of public opinion.
Thank you for all that you do,
Loraine Reitman, Co-founder and steering committee member, Bradley Manning Support Network
PS Funds raised will be used to cover Bradley Manning’s legal representation, including paying his attorney and expert witnesses and legal fees. We will use remaining funds to raise awareness about Bradley, including covering his trial on our website, holding rallies and vigils, and organizing petitions on his behalf.
