We would like to ensure our readers and supporters that we are in the process of writing an effective strategy on how to use the donated money so far in order to help Kareem as much as possible, at least through clothing, proper food, etc. Before we take any action however, we would like to discuss this further through direct collaboration with Kareem and his lawyers. We also wanted to collect enough money in order to act productively.
There have been complaints about us not making our donation process visible – this is because we have not put the money we collected in use, however all of the money is there and will be wired to Kareem somehow once we fully understand the logistics and once we figure out a way to do this as reliably as possible. Once we start doing this, we will document the process and put a financial log for tracking the money transfer, which we will make viewable through a spreadsheet on this website.
Rumors of the Free Kareem Coalition taking advantage of this campaign to make money is not true, and quite frankly we are surprised at these attempts to distract and discourage us.
Kareem is our friend – we would never betray or use him. We wouldn’t have done this much work for this campaign if we didn’t care about him, so please stop spreading rumors about how this campaign is being managed. Keep your criticisms clean of lies or rumors for the sake of Kareem himself. This is a fight for human rights. Let’s keep it that way.
