Donation Allocation Update from Greenfield, MA Arrests

Hey y’all, just wanted to say thanks again for helping Adam and I when we were arrested for filming a couple weeks back when in Greenfield, MA. Whether you shared a link with a friend, called the “authorities” in MA to question their actions or threw us some coin, we really appreciate the help.

Last week we told of our gratitude and inquired of those who donated how they wanted their money allocated since we ended up having no bail. I also emailed a short thank-you to this great group of folks and included a link to the post, just to be thorough.

Based on that input, and being advocates of  transparency (which incentives personal responsibility), we wanted to share with you how the donated money was allocated.

$3,600 – total donated
$3,600 – $1,000 (amount remaining after emails were sent to donors – one individual who had  given $1,000 wanted LOLA to keep their donation) = $2,600
$2,600 – 500 (Rich Paul’s bail – he will donate this money to a liberty organization when he gets the $500 back at the conclusion of his legal proceedings) = $2,100
$2,100 – $285 (MARVs impound) = $1,815
$1,815 – $500 (donations given to LOLA, C4SS and CDEvolution for their help getting the word out and collecting funds, per the suggested allocation on last week’s post) = $1,315
$1,315 – $200 (one Rode VideoMic Directional Video Condenser Microphone w/Mount and two Sima SL-20LX Ultra Bright Video Lights) = $1,115
$1,115 – $1,115 (two Canon VIXIA HF-R10 cameras, four PNY 8GB SD cards, one tripod, one monopod and two Dynex Video Accessory Brackets) = $0

Our new gear is a step-up from the what we had when on the road with the Motorhome Diaries, which means higher-quality content and thus (hopefully), more people exposed to the ideas of liberty. And just to reiterate, when/if we finally get our cameras back from our friends at the Greenfield, MA PD we’ll pass them along to those who can put them to good use.

Thanks again! It’s so great to see this liberty movement grow into a supportive community. We’ll put this new gear to good use as we hit the road with Liberty On Tour in just a couple of weeks! And I’m sure some of the content we create while on the road will find its way to Cop Block:)
