Stop the ISIS genocide
Organized by: Jordan Groskopf
Hello, my name is Jordan and I come to you today to ask for your support. Every night, like many of you, I sit and tune into the news after a long day in the field. I watch the evils of the world play out on the screen in front of me and I, like many fellow Americans, ask why nobody stands up to these atrocities. That sentiment is echoed by millions. I, however, can no longer sit idly by while this goes on complacent with merely asking why. I am ready to say enough and take a stand. I come to you today asking for your assistance on an amazing journey to document and fight against the atrocities of ISIS, ISIL, the caliphate, whatever name you want to attach to this new face of evil. I will be bringing with myself some basic journalistic equipment to document my journey from beginning to end but I simply cannot do this, financially, all on my own. So I come to you, the public, to ask for your support for airfare, defensive equipment, food and other basic necessities. I have been in contact with the Lions of Rojava, a rebel group fighting against ISIS comprised of foreign volunteer fighters primarily from Britain, North America and Australia. I plan to depart Winter of 2016. I will be documenting all of this via video and audio clips as well as a journal/blog that will be regularly updated to help keep YOU posted on what is going on. I thank you sincerely for taking the time to read this. God bless. Jordan. All money donated towards this will go towards: $1500 will go towards airfare and travel, the remaining $2,500 will go towards a Canon camera to record, document and share with friends, family and supporters like you back home via social media and newsletters as well as a satellite phone for communications.
