from Bob Cooke, Pax Christi Metro DC-Baltimore
Here is a link to the sign-on letter that the Pax Christi Anti-Drone Grassroots Task Force has put together and which will be published in August in the National Catholic Reporter. We are trying to get a least 300 signers. Bishop Gumbleton, Kathy Kelly and Marie Dennis are the first few “well-known” Catholics who will be signing. If you have not signed on already, please consider joining them by signing yourself.
We are asking for a donation of $20 from each signee from those who can make such a donation. If someone would like to sign the letter but the monetary contribution is their only detriment, they should let me know and we will almost definitely include their name (unless we have filled up all the space on the one page ad we are planning to use). Listed below is information regarding how people can sign up and pay by check through the mail or online. Anyone interested in signing but is concerned with the requested contribution can e-mail me (email@example.com) and I will take care of getting their name on the letter (with the above caveat).
You can pay to have your name included on this letter by paying by check or online at the PCMDC-B website.
If paying by check, please let us know exactly how you would like your name to appear (with or without titles such as Dr., Mrs., etc.) when you mail us your check. Please send your check, made out to Pax Christi Metro DC-Baltimore (with “NCR Drone Letter” in the memo line) to PCMDC-Baltimore, PO Box 29030, Washington, DC 20017-9030. All sign-on’s received by check must be received no later than July 13, 2013.
Paying online – go to http://www.paxchristimetrodc.org/ and click on the Donate button, where you can choose to pay by Pay Pal or credit card. Click on “Add Special Instructions to the Seller” and note that this payment is for the NCR anti-drone letter and if you want your name to appear on the letter differently than it does for PayPal or your Credit Card, as applicable, please note how you would like your name to appear.
Deadline for Online Payment– please sign on as soon as possible and encourage others to do so also. The deadline for online payment is set for 07/17/2013.
As noted above, besides considering signing the letter, please forward this to all others, especially Catholics, who you think may sign and especially other Pax Christi members who you know!
If you have any further questions on the sign on ad/letter, please let me know.
