    Graham Berry Fundraiser

    GB just posted here:

    Considering that Anon was able to raise funds to send WBM and Tory to Europe last year, and that GB may be our strongest player in Rivercide, is there something we can do to help him out?

    Edit: The post referenced below suggests that Costco gift cards would be Uber-Kewl, as they have gas and food in addition to office supplies. And they're practically everywhere in SoCal.

    BIG MOD EDIT: Please refer to this post on how to sent money to Graham without it getting into Moxon's tighty whities.

    Update 2:
    If Paypal or credit card is your preferred source to help cover his legal expenses, you can send money to the fund listed for Graham on the front page of WWP. We will be sending out regular US postal money orders to him when it hits $200. One will be sent off tomorrow since it is at $220. This money is of course meant to help cover the costs and expenses that he racks up doing all of the legal work he does.

    Naturally, for the reasons Graham states, all $$ sent is NOT a donation but for Graham's EXPENSES of taking action and legal representation of Anons. I'm sure we're all clear about that.
  2. Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    WWP Donations link above has a section for donations to Graham's office supply purchases.

    I'm going to go look for a IRL address for us old-fashioned snail mail types...but I bet someone other than me will be faster... ;)

    and I was right

    thx Michael
  5. Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    I has $100, just need something with Graham's name to send it too, electronic transfer is preferred. pay a pal perhaps?

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    If you sent it Western Union (for office supplies etc) Graham would get it immediately locally.

    By this I mean W.U money transfer
  7. eddieVroom Member

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    He seems to need more than office supply gift cards at present -- I was thinking of a general operating expenses fund, spendable at his discretion. And I'd never get a gift card for fuel/food/whatever to him in time for this Tuesday's meeting of the Rivercide Council...

    Mind you, I'm barely skating by on unemployment right now, and I'm willing to pitch a few bones his way. I believe THAT strongly that we need to keep Graham in the game.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    A monthly contribution would be nice if people can afford it. Whether it is $5, $10, $20 or more, it all adds up. Do it!!

    As was recently pointed out to me, if you mail a money order, use a POSTAL money order. They are cheaper and there is no fee to cash them.

    Money orders from Western Union (the type 7-11 stores sell) charge $10 just to cash it.

    Money orders are great because they are the safest way of donating. They are the most anonymous and if you send cash, it could easily be stolen.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    is this enough info for western union payment?

    don't you need to specify which station?

    and i guess it's okay to not be anonymous with GB, right?

    I'll try to swing something tomorrow am
  10. Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    I don't want to slow down any generosity but I believe Graham apparently has legal impediments to accepting cash donations.

    There's info here somewhere with the background and I don't want to misrepresent it.

    Could Graham perhaps clarify what procedure he can follow?

    EDIT: yes he can accept them, see Graham post 22 for options

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Wal-mart money orders are cheaper the post office if you have one near you. Paypal offers a debit card, international transactions, credit card payments..but there is a cost to receive...You can get an account that doesn't cost to receive but you are limited in the type of payments you can receive. Also, his account would be subject to hacking by OSA.
  12. rummychick99 Member

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Maybe he can sell something to you..but then he is subject to taxes on it and other misc. problems.

    He should be able to represent AO and the Two Marks on a contingency basis if filing a case against Scientology under Tort Law.

    That doesn't take care of his living expenses until the case is settled, though.

    If he can't take cash...Go to Kmart or whoever else sells American Express cards and buy one with your credit card. I think 5.95 activation fee for $100. Some gas stations don't take American express gift cards...maybe all gas stations. I am not sure.
    Or buy a Wal-mart card.That takes care of everything if there is a Walmart around him that sells gas.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Yo, my cash is tied up right now getting things ready for our first protest, but next week, I should be good for a donation.

    Another option for you guys is a Money Order. It's pretty much safer than sending cash because if it's filled out right, only Mr. Berry can cash it (with proof of I.D. and whatnot). The standard fee for a Money Order is only 69 cents so that's fairly cheap, plus the cost of a stamp. It isn't immediate, but it is safe.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Oh wait, I have an idea. Graham should start a religion. The money will come flowing in and he doesn't have to worry about pesky things like taxes or paying his workers wages!
  15. eddieVroom Member

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Getting something to him for the Tuesday Riverside Council meeting is time-sensitive of course, but he'll likely need a sustained effort after that to keep him able to stay active.

    Damn, I wish I were in L.A. again. I'd drive and feed him myself...

    This is how the scilons always win, they continue legal engagements until the other side runs out of money...

    We need Grahams help...

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    I was advocating as early as 1998 that anti-Scientology activists organize as Clergy. Not for tax-exempt status, but for certain legal protections such a thing provides. The important thing is to maintain a Clerical Logbook to dox your activity should the legitimacy of your "mission" be questioned. It need not be detailed.

    Universal Life Church | ULC

    Of course, if you have bookkeeping skills and are willing to do the paperwork, you can accept donations and file taxes as a cleric.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    I'd be glad to send him a money order

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    I can't do anything to help out immediately, but I will drop a giftcard in the mail for supplies by the end of next week.

    Can Graham accept Walmart cards to use for food and/or supplies? Do Walmarts in CA have gas stations where he could also use that Walmart card?

    For those of us who don't live out there, being told his preferences for donations would be very helpful.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    If the US finance / money transfer system just wouldn't be such a mess ...
    Is there any IBAN, BIC, SWIFT numbers available? All other stuff is causing lots of extra costs.
  21. eddieVroom Member

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Some food, yes, but not full-blown supermarket type stuff. Gas, no.

    Costco has both all over SoCal, but I don't know if Graham has a membership there -- $35 a year last I was a resident of the region.

    Subway and all manner of fast food joints are in the area. Gas stations would inlude Chevron, Unocal and BP. Ralph's would be THE supermarket chain in the region, followed by Albertson's.

    I've PM'd Graham asking for his input in this thread.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    I just received a telephone call from an Anon (an OT VIII!) requesting me to provide information as to how people may assist me in doing what I do against the cult. As some of you know, Moxon and co have some fraudulently obtained sanctions against me which one day, when I have time/money/representation, will be reversed. In the meantime, I work around them. Anyway, PayPal proceeds can be seized by Moxon & Co. Donations do not have to be for any particular purpose.

    What seems to work best is either money orders mailed directly to me or Western Union transfers (which you then need to PM or Email me to collect).

    Here is the information:

    Graham E. Berry
    3384 McLaughlin Avenue
    Los Angeles, CA 90066
    Telephone: (310) 745-3771
    Cell: (310) 902-6381
    PM at WWP= graham berry

    P.S. We have the cult on the run and on the ropes. This seems to be the year for the breakthroughs to begin. Let’s bring scientology’s war against the SPs, and its “Targets Defense,” to their conclusion.

    P.P.S. COSTCO, Ralphs, Vons, Albertosons, Staples and Office Depot work just fine. I use a Costco card.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Kewl. 'cause you can get gas and food at Costco in addition to office supplies.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    LOL. I just edited my post to include that very thing as you were writing yours.

    I will give you a deal on biscuits. Eat cheap with jam ;-)

    If your Kroger has Pillsbury biscuits for 1.00 each buy 5 and you get a catalina coupon for 3.00 to use in the store. There are coupons beside that area for .75 off three in some stores. It may work for the cheap small package. I haven't tried that, yet. Of course, California is a wacky state so none of it may be going on there. Test it at Ralphs which is run by Kroger. If you store is out...get rainchecks. I think The catalina deal is running for awhile.

    how is that for a thread derail.

    I have some Gift cards from Victoria's Secret if Graham wants to dress up in Ladies Wear to protest ;-)

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    That, plus he is an outstanding human being. He puts victims of the cult before his own well being and he has suffered for it. Yet, he continues to fight for the rights of CoS cult victims.

    I have the deepest respect for that man.

    Goddamnit, I'm RAAAAGING. I was just googling Graham Berry because I'm bored as shit and the third link is to Religious Freedom Watch. Fuckin' dickfucks. A bug report should be filed to their site. They have "Scientology" listed as a religion lolol

    It was obvious. They marked Graham and Heldal-Lund as "Anti-Religious Extremists".

    Pot, kettle.

    Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Sadly, it appears that you need to be a Costco member to order Costco Gift Cards -- nonetheless, that's the link. If they were in Wisconsin, I'd still be a member. I miss their food court chicken bake thingies...

  40. Re: Graham Berry Fundraiser

    Western union electronic transfers seems to be the easiest way to contribute.

    Use Coupon Code: D0066 to have the $10 fee waived.
