Raised by 403 people in 13 months
Help our Detroit Native Wendell Brown get home to his son, family, and friends.
Wendell is a college graduate and athlete who has been to many places around the globe and has met many awesome people along the way. Wendell is well respected in his community, has been a positive role model, and inspires everyone around him. He has made us very proud of his many accomplishments and has always represented himself as a loving child of God. We need your help returning him home from a foreign country where he has fulfilled his mission.

American Wendell Brown has been wrongfully detained in mainland China since September 2016. Wendell, coach of the Chongqing Dockers was attacked by a group of drunk men in the entertainment district of Chongqing last fall. Sworn witnesses corroborate that Wendell was forced to defend himself after being mobbed by several men of smaller stature with weapons. Wendell is a father of a ten year old son and highly respected member of the community, who coached around the world before being attacked in a more rural community of China. Racial, cultural and political misunderstandings have kept Wendell behind bars, as his family in Detroit tries to bring him home. Please help. Your donations will help unite a family and restore justice for an American caught at the wrong place at the wrong time. We hope to reach our goal of $5,000 for summer child care by June.


This fundraiser has been organized on behalf of the family by Wendells mother Antoinette Brown, of Detroit Michigan to cover emergency cost associated with loss wages, child care, and emergency family travel. The money is going to me and I'll withdraw it for things related to this family misfortune . Our goal is to reach $5,000 for summer child care by June . Your donations are greatly appreciated.

To whom this may concern: Wendell has had a lawyer to represent him I'm China since September 2016 when he was first arrested.. The US Embassy/Consulate has been involved also the US senator /assistant has been involved .. Wendells family friends and a host of others. The NAACP has also been informed of this common but unfortunate sisuation also . Wendells court date is approaching and when he is released we need to be prepared to get him home. Air fare, unpaid bills while he was took away from us, clothes to wear that was lost and whatever he needs to get himself together to get home.. ID/passport etc.

FootBall Player Wendell Brown: May I suggest Restructuring the Go Fund Me Page - Mr. Brown has been Locked up since September 2016. Focus on the details of his case, which could be helpful. . . and gain exposure on the matter pertaining to his rights, and the right to a fair trial. Consult with U.S. and China based Attorneys that practice Human Rights and Constitutional Law. I suggest contacting the United States Embassy, United States Consulate, and Nationl Media Outlets. Speak with an Attorney. - The U.S. Consulate & U.S. Embassy Chengdu Shi, Sichuan Sheng, China - 4 Lingshiguan Rd, Wuhou Qu, Chengdu Shi, Sichuan Sheng, China, 610041 +86 28 8558 3992 www.USEmbassy.gov Chongqing City Municipality. This campaign is raising funds to support expenses that have incurred in his absence, and does not effectively support any efforts towards Mr. Browns release. - Why not change the platform to support a "Legal Defense Fund." -

This guy made a video blog about Wendell's case. But even the guy in the video says you are not helping Wendell by withholding information on this Go fund me, it looks way too vague, you NEED to explain what happened. You haven't given any information about where he is or what the situation is. It is all covered here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCJyVH3QemU 1. He was in a bar, he got asked to drink by some local Chinese 2. He refused, they got angry and threw a beer bottle at him. 3. He defended himself, an altercation happened and police came. 4. None of the Chinese aggressors were arrested, or detained. 5. He is the only one from that night to be held, he is currently being held without charge, until he "confesses" to "doing something wrong" 6. Self defence is not wrong. But until he confesses, he is being detained in a Chongqing PRISON. 7. The attackers are trying to extort him for a BIG amount of compensation for "injuries" they received. So far the Chongqing government, nor the American government has done anything to check in on the situation and make sure his rights are being upheld.

Oh, I forgot to mention.. If you want to save money on calling out there..First get a unlocked phone..Then sign up for Lycamobile prepaid at their website or find a store in Detroit that sells them..a SIM card should be very easy to find either via the website or the store of your choice in Detroit. Next once you get the SIM activated, chose a plan that includes the UNLIMITED INTERNATIONAL CALLS. It is 45 bucks a month..You can use it here in the states anywhere, however the benefit is, you are able to make international calls as well for no additional fees..This is the only company I know that does this. Again, good luck and hope this help you and your family in some way. U.S. Embassy & Consulates in China EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE U.S. Citizens with emergencies, please call 010-8531 4000 Outside of Office Hours, contact: 010-8531 3000 Outside of China: (+86) 10-8531 4000

Otto von Warmbier(the american in North Korea who was detained) got a lot a publicity. But this case has none. It unfortunate how I find out about it as well, anyway. I've read the letter dated March 2017. Somehow it must be a method to get Chongqing to admit publicly to detaining Mr. Brown. If he has to eat that cadmium rice(http://www.greenpeace.org/eastasia/publications/reports/toxics/2014/cadmium-rice-heavy-metal/) that is awful. As i suspect you might have trust issues with this present goverment administration, hopefully the United Nations could help. Again solid evidence is very important too. I don't know if money would help except hiring someone who is fluent in mandarin and english to ask the bar what really happened and/or bribe him out of jail. Sorry
