Dear Friends and supporters


Thank you so very much - with your help I was already able to purchase a plane ticket!


There are still additional funds needed for traveling expenses.


Below is the Coffeehouses sponsoring letter and the draft tour schedule - 



If
you would like more information about becoming a tour sponsor, and/or
about helping to organize a gathering in your local veterans hall,
church or even your home, please contact Gerry Condon at
projectsafehaven@hotmail.com
or 206-499-1220
 


or me at gi-cafe-germany@gmx.net



Dear
Friends,



A
very unique speaking tour, made up of military families, veterans and
activists

from three modern day GI coffeehouses, will tour west coast cities in
mid-February through early March, 2014.




Speakers
will represent GI outreach centers near Fort Hood, Texas, near Joint
Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state, and near a cluster of US
bases in Germany, including Ramstein Airbase, AFRICOM and US Army
Europe headquarters.




Respectively,
these GI Cafes are called Under
The Hood
,
Coffee
Strong

and The Clearing
Barrel
.




This
is the first time these far flung GI coffeehouses have undertaken
such a joint effort. We would very much like you and your
organization to be a part of it.




Participants
in the various cities in California, Oregon and Washington will have
the opportunity to learn first hand about the successes and
challenges of today's practitioners of the GI Coffeehouse movement.
There will be videos, slide shows, and discussions about the future
of these important centers of information and resistance. Local
musicians, artists and activists will also participate.




Would
you and your organization like to co-sponsor this GI coffeehouse
tour?




The
GI cafes offer counseling, support, alternative information,
camaraderie and a safe space from which to socialize and organize.
This kind of support makes sense. It values the lives and humanity
of those men and women who, without better opportunities, find
themselves in the US military in a time of perpetual war.




You
or your organization could be a co-sponsor of the entire tour. We
only ask that you:





  • Lend
    your good name to publicity for the tour




  • Publicize
    the tour through your own networks




  • Consider
    making a donation of $100-$500 to help cover tour expenses.





  • A
    donation of any amount will be much appreciated. Any funds raised on
    the tour will go to the operating expenses of the three GI Cafes,
    which are all organized as non-profits.




    We
    look forward to hearing from you as we put the tour schedule
    together. We are planning to be in San Diego and Los Angeles on Feb.
    12-15; we will be in the SF Bay Area on the weekend of Feb. 21-23,
    and we will end up in Portland, Seattle and Bellingham, Washington
    (Feb. 28-March 2). And there will be many stops in between.




    If
    you would like more information about becoming a tour sponsor, and/or
    about helping to organize a gathering in your local veterans hall,
    church or even your home, please contact Gerry Condon at
    projectsafehaven@hotmail.com
    or 206-499-1220
     


    Wage
    Peace!
