2 Days Left to Join In Time to Help Us Help Some Death Row Families

With just five minutes of your time, you can help us win a contest that would allow us to help some families of people on death row, as well as fight the death penalty.

Please help, so we can help some families of people on death row.

Join the "Abolish the Death Penalty Project" on Amazee. com and help Texas anti-death penalty activists win the Amazee membership contest.

We could win $5,000 to use against the death penalty if we come in first, $3,000 for second and $2,000 for third.

The project with the most members by Jan 22 wins. If we win, we plan to use one-half of any prize money we win to help needy families of people on death row travel to visit their loved ones on death row.

We will use the other half of the prize money to fight against the death penalty.

Visit the project page, click on "join project" on the right hand side, then click on "register". They will send you a password. Log back in, return to the project page, click "join project" again. Then to qualify as one of the members who counts towards the contest, you have to upload a picture or avatar to represent you. It can be a picture of anything. If you do not upload some sort of picture, then you won't count towards the contest.

We were all moved by the many family members who spoke at the 9th Annual March to Stop Executions in Houston on Oct 25, so we were thinking of how we could help them. We all know that the death penalty is reserved for the poor. There are no rich people on death row.

We will use one half of any prize money we get through this contest to help family members visit their loved ones on death row. Many families have a hard time making ends meet and the extra cost of traveling long distances to visit their loved ones on death row is a great financial burden. Some of the people on death-row have young children who rarely get to visit them.
