Hay Bale Fire statement

Posted 10/13/2020 11:25am by Farmers.

The public response to our hay bale message going up in flames has been far beyond our expectations. What began as an oversized endorsement of our choice of candidates, has blossomed into an outpouring of support of incredible proportions. 


We’ve learned that a Go Fund Me has been started in our name and offers of help are streaming in. It’s hard to express the depth of our appreciation for all the folks who care about our farm and want to contribute. Our plan is to channel all funds to the local ACLU, and this is why:
 
"The ACLU is uniquely positioned to take action this unprecedented election, with offices in all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico and with resource sharing to ensure voting rights advocacy and election protection nationwide."
If you feel compelled to contribute in the spirit of our message of “LOVE - UNITY - RESPECT”  then may we suggest that you do the same. 
 
"If you would like to support ACLU's work in Massachusetts and across the country you can make a donation at www.aclum.org/defenddemocracy - there is currently a match that will double your donation. "
 
If you have problems voting or have additional questions, please call the national, non-partisan Election Protection hotline:
English: 1-866-OUR-VOTE(1-866-687-8683)
Spanish: 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA(1-888-839-8682)
Arabic: 1-844-YALLA-US(1-844-925-5287)
Bengali, Cantonese, Hindi, Urdu, Korean, Mandarin, Tagalog, or Vietnamese: 1-888-274-8683
 
While we would love to respond to each person who has reached out to us to offer their support, there are just not enough hours. 
 
Going forward, we ask that you please VOTE and protect democracy now and for future generations. 
 
In gratitude, 
 
The Holiday Brook Farm Crew/Family
