Amnesty International USA ~ A Message from Yoko Ono

Dear Wayward Bill & Others,

I couldn’t resist reaching out to you this evening to share some exciting news about our September membership drive: a group of Amnesty members, inspired by Yoko Ono’s words, have come together to more than double the matching gift funds.

That means that from now until September 30, any donation you make will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $300,000.

These 5 donors, from Georgia, New York, California and Texas, believe in the promise of Amnesty International. I hope you will join them.

Larry Cox
Executive Director, Amnesty International USA

Dear Wayward Bill & Others,

I have a special wish – and you are part of it.

Oct. 9 is the 70th anniversary of John Lennon’s birth. As always, my birthday wish for John is one of peace. For me, finding peace means protecting the human rights of courageous individuals like Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

Suu Kyi inspires me to fight for human rights even when the odds seem insurmountable. She has endured unofficial detention for 14 of the past 20 years, yet she continues to inspire the people of Myanmar with her message of peace, love and freedom.

Amnesty International is a leader in the call for Suu Kyi’s release and also for the 2,100 political prisoners detained in Myanmar today.

We won’t rest until they all are free. This is what I love about Amnesty International and why I’m proud to call myself a member.

Please help my wish for peace, love and freedom come true. Join me as a member of Amnesty International today.

John shared a common purpose with Amnesty – shining a light on wrongs and campaigning to protect people’s rights.

If John were alive today, I know he’d be grateful for Amnesty’s work. There is no greater champion for prisoners of conscience and victims of torture, for the oppressed and dehumanized. There is no stronger force for human rights.

Through the support of people like you, Amnesty International has become a tenacious, tireless, champion for humanity. Please try to make a financial gift today and help Amnesty International "Pass the Candle" of hope to a new generation so that this bright light never fades.

I urge you to join right now.

In peace,

Yoko Ono
