Dear Fellow Abolitionist,
Thank you for expressing your interest in a financial partnership with We Are FREE. As you know, slavery in various forms has existed from the time of the earliest civilizations and sadly, I believe it will exist until the end of time. That being said, there have been those to fight against slavery in the past and others will continue to fight in the future. This however, is our time. This is our leg of the race where we have the privilege as abolitionists to carry the baton of freedom and we are so glad you have decided to join us.
So that we may never forget those who have fought to preserve freedom nor lose the sense of import associated with each contribution we have named each level of participation in honor of a former abolitionist. Again, thank you for joining us in this fight, your contribution provides freedom!
