8. Organize Mothers in
your area to "turn yourself in" to local police department if and when Cindy is arrested. Most likely you will not go to jail, but will make a powerful statement in solidarity.

Sending out press release in the a.m. will keep you all posted as this develops. Please forward this info to all your contacts, groups you belong to etc.

Stand in solidarity with Cindy Sheehan as a patriot Mothers willing to go to jail!

Thank you for all your support.

If you are willing to join this movement please call
Crawford Peace house and let them know, they are keeping track as this develops

Thanks again!

13. Gotcha, but.........
I originally missed the "Cindy" & "Crawford" connection. Actually I think they're just goofing on that.

17. Sorry about that
I should have added sarcasm tags or a :dunce: emoticon.

Or maybe followed up with an Emily Litello quote.

11. Cindy Crawford Asked For $126,000 From Romanian Charity
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Cindy-Crawford-Asked-For...

(I could do a dozen (sic) here . . .but I'll let the international newspaper words stand)


Former Supermodel Cindy Crawford went beyond all the moral bounds when she asked a charity organizations to pay her an exorbitant amount of money, to appear a children's charity fundraiser.


Former Supermodel Cindy Crawford went beyond all the moral bounds when she asked a charity organization to pay her an exorbitant amount of money, to appear as a children's charity fundraiser.

Crawford has been approached by Leukemia charity Valente Umane to come at a fundraising dinner that was hoping to raise 180,000 dollars for cancer-patient children in Romania. And it seems that Cindy agreed,
in exchange of 126,000 dollars for a private jet, luxury accommodation and other expenses.

"I hope organizers dont spend all the money settling Cindy Crawfords bill," charity spokesperson Ruxandra Cusnir declared to The Sun newspaper.

Ana Maria Tagoe, whose three-year-old son needs a bone marrow transplant, said, I cant believe her greed - the money would pay for transplants for four children.

Edited on Tue Aug-09-05 08:55 PM by walldude
"high society" events and they have a habit of patting themselves on the back when they spend a million dollars on an event to raise $20,000 for charity...

edit for clarification- Nothing against the group it's just how rich people like ole Cindy there think.

16. Nothing NEW?
And that's okay with you?

What does that say about "our" society?
