MONEY MESSAGE FROM FINANCE DEPT:
Matt Ward · DIS – Danish Institute for Study Abroad
TO ALL WHO SUPPORT US AROUND THE WORLD:
We desperately need donations to continue to supply the #OccupyLA movement. We are attempting to make this look easy and free, but it definitely costs money! Our present weekly sanitation cost alone exceeds $3,000, and that is with the numbers in the thousands, unlike the tens of thousands most of you shall surely soon be joining in the streets.
The best form of making a remote contribution is by check! PayPal can shut us down, but your check will always be good! Please send any donations, be they financial or durable good (particularly bedrolls or pads to place beneath bodies; it's not that cold, but the ground still steals all the warmth from the body while you sleep!), to this address:
The UPS Store.
645 W. 9th St. Unit 110-253
Los Angeles, CA 90015.
You can also donate by going to occupylosangeles.org or the Occupy Los Angeles facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/occupyLA
The primary disadvantage to this method is that it will take us longer to access the funds. This is okay, however! We still desperately want them, even by that method. We are not going slow, we are going far! We will soon have a BitCoin donation account set up as well, which is a much securer method that will allow us to mobilize funds more quickly and efficiently, so keep checking those above-referenced pages!
Anyone with particular donation questions or causes they can help mobilize in any charitable support, including offering of tax-exempt status shelter, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to everyone who has already generously helped us get this incredible movement off the ground! I hope we can continue to make it look easy, but we are here because you are with us! Join us!
