Our Dear Friend

This is to raise money for Rueben, a close friend of ours. He is in need of our help. He is currently being detained, and is in line for deportation back to Zambia. He has been in the U.S. since he was a child. These funds will go towards lawyer costs, bonds, and other fees. If we are successful and Rueben is allowed to stay in the U.S., any remaining funds will be donated to the ACLU. If we are not successful, and he is forced to go back, any remaining funds will be given to Rueben to assist in his transition..... I will be withdrawing the funds and handling the money. I've paid two lawyers so far, and the rest of the money will be held by me until its needed, or Rueben is released and I can deliver it to him.
