We met our latest fundraising goal and have purchased the airline ticket for Chris Brown. Now Chris can concentrate on assisting the lawyers to make the best-possible presentation at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. But before we move on to the next piece in Jordan’s defense, I want to linger for just a moment on how much your support means to Chris, me, and anyone who believes in the ideal of achieving a just society in America.
I could hear the surprise in Chris’ voice when I told him the goal had been achieved, and so quickly, too. Chris Brown is relieved his travel is covered and amazed that we met the goal in a single day. A guy who has borne so much disappointment can get pretty used to the idea he is out there alone; this demonstrates that he has a depth of support he didn’t even know about. Thank you for believing in his cause.
I also want to thank you for the support that you have shown to individual kids.
A couple days ago, I heard from one of Paul Henry Gingerich’s supporters who had a couple of books from Amazon “refused delivery” at Paul’s prison. This supporter said it took a while to find out why, but with the help of Anna, a new lady in the mail room, he found that it’s because he had stored at Amazon the old PO Box address for Pendleton. He saw on the web site they now use a physical address.
Letters that get sent to the PO Box do get delivered (with a sticker saying “please tell your senders the new address”), but parcels get rejected. The physical address for Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility is: 9310 South State Road 67, Pendleton, IN 46064.
