Blackjewel Coal recently bankrupt leaving approximately 480 Virginia coal miners alome and their families in financial distress. Not only were jobs lost with this bankruptcy but also earned wages have not been paid. All pay checks have been returned and most miners are now in the negative with their financial institutions. These hardworking men that do not ask for assistance that have earned a honest pay now need your help for their families. They have worked very hard to provide for their families.It is my mission to get them through this hard ship until new jobs are found and and or pay is given. These funds will solely go to the miners and their familes. Verification of each miner is required to receive any funding. Thank you.
