FIGHTING FUND PROGRESS UPDATE

Well Wow! What can I say- Angela's  fighting fund for Richard has exceeded all expectations over the last 48hours or so. Things really started to take off after Torrentfreak Published an article and at the same time ThePirateBay placed a doodle linking to the donation site  on their home pageTwitter helped spread the word as usual!

Angela and I are trying to thank all donors individually as well as responding to comments and good wishes. Its not very easy to do this without missing people or sending a thank you twice to the same person! Anyway we are doing our best. I know people on twitter have donated and its not alway possible to recognise and connect these with people following me on twitter so a  MASSIVE THANK YOU to all from twitter who have given and sent their messages of support, such a brilliant crowd whose support online has given me strength and helped  keep me going over these last 18 months.

Up to now 889 people from all over the world have donated £10,409! So much kindness and generosity from people really has been tremendous along with the great supportive comments. If this continues Angela should be sure to reach her goal of £25,000.

Just for info payment via the Gofundme site is via credit or debit card payment. Due to having a small number of people ask about alternative ways to donate people can also donate using  Flattr and there is now a  Flattr button on this blog. (This is new to me so I'm not sure how it works!) If people want to donate using other methods I'm sure that can be arranged so either contact me @jrodwyer or Angela @angelaroberts2 via twitter or leave a comment on here or on the Gofundme site and one of us will get back to you.

Someone has asked about Facebook verification of the Gofundme fighting fund the reason this hasn't happened is because Angela (who launched this fund) does not have a Facebook account - her dog does tho! Therefore you will not see it Facebook verified but I can assure everyone that monies raised will be used for its intended purpose as stated on this earlier post 


Depending on the outcome for Richard if there are any funds not used we will  ensure these are donated to worthy causes fighting against unjust extraditions and for extradition reform e.g Fair Trials International and Liberty

  6. You are still not searchable nor can you be found in the categories of gofundme.com. Please chech if this is your setting for the campaign or an error or, hope not, a subtle way to sabotage the campaign.

      May be because they want you to be Facebook verified first and Angela doesn't do Facebook at all. I'll check it out

  7. Is there some way in which I could contact the campaign in order to arrange a possible interview. I have a cover letter that I would like to send the campaign although I can't find an E-mail address for doing so.

    1. I should note that this would be for an independent documentary project.
