On June 24th, 2003 I sat down to write my first appeal letter for Amnesty International. This week – eight and half years later – I wrote my 300th letter for Amnesty International. I also reached another milestone. I have written letters to one hundred different countries across the globe.
I have collected some data on the affects of my letter writing:
34 Prisoners of Conscience released!
17 Actions taken by governments
to improve the rights of citizens!
The replies I have received have come from the Philippines, the United States, England, Canada, and Russia. I cannot stress enough how simple the process is. It only takes fifteen minutes of your time to help or save a life! My next goal is 1000 letters! I will keep you posted!
