Support Occupy Wall Street!

Stephen Piggott • Oct 11, 2011

Imagine2050 pledges support for the Occupy Wall Street Protests around the country. Over the past few weeks the “Occupy Wall Street” protests have grown tremendously. According reports, over 1,000 cities across the country are holding similar protests. With this in mind, Imagine2050 has pledged to support the protesters by sending care packages to help them sustain this effort for as long as possible.

Imagine2050 has chosen four cities, New York, Chicago, Seattle and Atlanta, to which we will be sending care packages. The packages will include items such as gloves, hand warmers, coffee, chocolate and hats. Bigger items such as sleeping bags are also badly needed in New York.

We are also calling on our readers to stand in solidarity with the protesters. As noted earlier, there are literally hundreds of cities that are taking part in this historic movement.  Many of the “Occupy” protests in specific cities have set up P.O. boxes so that people can send supplies; others have a paypal or other account where people can donate. If you live in or close to a major city, there’s a good chance that it has an “Occupy” protest going on and already either has a Facebook page or website. Simply Google the word “occupy” and your city and you should find the information.

Imagine2050 will be visiting the Occupy Chicago protest later this week to hand deliver our care package and we will report back with photos/video. In the meantime, find your local “Occupy” protest and support it!

Let us know how you plan on supporting by dropping us a line here or by sending us a tweet @Imagine2050.
