Dear Anna & Kathy, Thank yo…
Dear Anna & Kathy,

Thank you for your support -- your donations have provided food and basic comforts to my beloved Climate Marcher family -- please DO NOT donate further to this campaign -- this is important to note as all funds may be redirected away from the community.

PLEASE go here: https://www.crowdrise.com/JimmyBettsAid or PayPal: jimseng@gmail.com

Here is why:

The March is officially over. I have done my part and so much more due to some unforeseen leadership-related challenges that not only put the march itself in financial jeopardy but also lost community confidence when our own voices were not being represented or understood by a dictatorially-structured organization.

The financial hardship occurred when fundraising efforts were no longer being actively pursued by the person whose sole responsibility was to maintain march viability in this way. This led me to voluntarily relinquish my staff organizer salary to ENSURE the March would survive... and I have been without any source of income for the past 4.5 months. In this way, I have not only invested +8 months into the organization and successful completion of the march, but now I will be prevented from continuing my service as an organizer and social justice advocate for an additional year or more due to this newfound financial burden.

I live simply, but have societal commitments and there are travel expenses that I need immediately to get home to be with ailing parents and a funeral for my late grandmother. I want to be able to be present for my loved ones as they have been for me during this challenging time on the road. I want to be able to continue supporting causes that support right relationships with each other, our society, and our planet, but need some serious financial (and to a lesser extent, moral) support at this time.

Asking for money is probably one of the most difficult things for me to do -- and this is coming from someone who has organized & walked across the country for the past 8 months!

No karmic regrets as my sacrifices were all for the right reasons, but "wow", my ideals certainly place me in uncomfortable situations :)

Any amount helps as I do not foresee any real efforts being put forward by the organization to make me whole at this time.

With Great Love,
Jimmy Betts, Surviving Program Director & LA to DC Marcher
