HOW TO DONATE TO SUPPORT INJURED COLOMBIAN GM WORKERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
The workers are currently on a hunger strike, but their families are also enduring hunger and facing devastating economic circumstances, including utility shut-offs and foreclosures. To give you a sense of the reality they are facing, when the hunger strike lifted during a failed mediation, the workers did not have anything to eat.
Supporting these workers financially has just become much easier. Wellspring UCC is going to collect funds and send them to the workers from now until October 9th, 2012.
If you would like to make a donation, you can send a check to "Wellspring UCC" with "Colombia relief" on the memo line. Their mailing address is:
Wellspring UCC, Box 508, Centreville VA 20122
If you would prefer to make a donation online through paypal visit: www.wellspringucc.org (Be sure to write "Colombia relief" on the message subject line.) A fee (less than 3%) is taken out of online donations from a bank card, with a fee closer to 6% for credit cards.
Once a week these funds will be sent to Bogota and the workers will be able to pick them up.
Thank you for all the support you have given these workers, please continue to let people know what is going on, and if you are in a position to support financially, please consider making a donation.
