WAU have been sponsoring a program called Adopt a Brüder for over 16 years years now. Our goal was to establish a program to ensure that each Brüder Schweigen member was / is receiving financial support while imprisoned. As individuals, most of us cannot afford to donate to four people each month; as a group, we can form a network with the ability to collectively provide each member with funds, seeing that no one is overlooked. So far we have managed to create a decent network of comrades and friends who support the Brüders,.
The program involves “adopting” a member to donate money to each month. There is no minimum amount; you must merely pledge to send a certain amount and hold to it. You are always free to send more, and if for some reason you cannot make your pledge one month, we simply ask that you let us know so we can make sure the money comes from elsewhere. Ultimately, we would like to see each prisoner with two assigned sponsors, each contributing $25 a month, with any other donations supplementing that base amount.
Those in America will be sending their own money orders or Western Union transfers; you do not need to trust us to handle your money, though a Paypal address will be made available for those who prefer to donate that way, proof of money sent will be provided for those that use this method of payment. You may remain as anonymous as you would like; all that is required is an email address or other means of checking in each month.
Each month, a sponsor sends money to his or her “adopted” prisoner. Once the money has been sent, a sponsor needs to contact email@example.com to report the amount and date and that’s it.
With each person contributing a little money, a little time, and a stamp, we can show these men our gratitude and support. By each doing what we can within our own means, we can combine our efforts to make a considerable difference. Anyone interested in participating should contact firstname.lastname@example.org – please spread the word about this program. Those who may have thought a small contribution was pointless before may be more inclined to send support when they know others are doing the same. This is an instance where every little bit counts, and it is the “little bits” that will make this program a success.
A word from WAU Australia
I’m pretty sure that most people are not aware that WAU’s Adopt a Bruder program is the only source of financial support that most of the imprisoned men of The Order are getting on a regular basis. You may not have thought to sponsor before thinking that these men were being well taken care of by the Movement, but I can personally tell you that this is not the case. At the moment we are desperately in need of some sponsors. Presently we only have 1, yes only 1 American sponsor and this is very disappointing. These men are Americans and they have fought, were imprisoned and some have died/ been murdered for us, for America, for our Folk
It is extremely hard to get funds to these men if you live outside of America and unfortunately we have been denied many sponsors because of this. But if you live in America sending money is as easy as a trip to the post office. I know America is financially in dire straits with a lot of people out of work, but really we are not even asking for a lousy $1 a day, just $25 a month will help these men who have given so much, with the simple necessities to make their stay in ZOGs’ Gulags that little bit more comfortable.
When WAU first approached these men, they had nothing, they were walking around with holes in their shoes had no financial support at all and had basically been left to rot by our so called Movement. Is this how we treat our heroes? Please do not allow this to happen again. I must give a huge shout out to the Australians as this is where the majority of our sponsors come from.
