Peition to create a black credit union in Lexington, Ky.

coutois:

dynastylnoire:

"This petition is for signature gathering, BWS~Lex needs 3,000 plus signatures in order to start a credit union for the underprivileged and under-serve inner-city of Lexington, KY. Credit Unions are not like regular banks that are For Profit Business. Credit Unions are Non-for Profit business which allows it to better serve the community-at large by offering lower interest rates and lower credit score approval for loans. Also, Credit Union helps the community benefit from using group economics. As well as allowing the people who may not be able to get a checking account or saving account at a regular bank be able to do so at a credit union.

Through group economics we can spiral our way collectively out of poverty. Another goal of BWS ~ credit union will stop the capital drain that is happening in our community-at large leaving our communities looking ran down and deserted. By using the method of Triangulation by keeping the monies in the community for which it serves.”

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST
They just need 3,000 signatures to make this happen!

that shaky thing your voice does when you’re confronting someone or speaking up for yourself is the worst damn thing it’s like you have no intentions of crying but your nervousness overcomes your vocal cords and you end up looking like such a weak shit

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.
