Care packages for incarcerated people in Jamaica
We want to send basic hygiene supplies to everyone in Jamaican prisons.
Stand Up For Jamaica will coordinate the logistics on the ground.
There are roughly 4,000 people in prisons. The package will consist of:
1 roll of tissue
1 protex soap
1 bottle of disinfectant
We have received a quote for JMD$500 (USD$3.67) for each package. Therefore we aim to raise JMD$ 2 million (USD$15000 - rounded up). We have secured JMD$500,000 (USD$3600) already and this campaign is to raise the rest.
Transfering money directly into SUFJ's account is also an option:
National Commercial Bank
37 Duke Street
Swift Code: JNCBJMKX
Please consider donating or sharing if you are unable to give at this time. Wish to support in other ways? Contact us.

Letter to our Leaders calling for action for folks on the inside
* Transparency on logistics: Funds raised through GoFundMe will go at first in Alexis' account and he will send the funds to Stand Up For Jamaica's account. All funds will go directly to Stand Up For Jamaica. Alexis will not retain any of the funds received.
EDUCATION IS A KEY FACTOR
Our main aim it is to create entrepreneurship mentality and activities which can not only allow people to get an employment but also be an instrument to the community where we operate, offering services at a convenient price. Violence can be defeated if real opportunities are created to reduce poverty and to make changes in the culture of gangs and illegal activities as unique way to generate income.
