I’m in the mailing list of Amnesty Nederland. I get emails in my inbox which I can reply to put my name on a petition. It’s easy and it really works. I’m always very happy when I receive an email with good news from Amnesty.
But, Amnesty also has a “Groetenlijst” (Regards list). It’s a list with names, stories, and addresses from people all over the world. Some are in prison, others are threatened but they are all human rights activists who could use a little support. You can chose a name from the list and write a letter or card. They have sentences in the language you have to use. I like to send cards to people from the list. It’s not much but I hope it will give them the strength to keep on going.
This is the card I have sent to Norma Cruz, Guatemala. She fights for protection and civil rights for woman.
If you have some questions about it. Feel free to ask me!
