Easyfundraising then shared daily clues about their locations, via Twitter and Facebook. When someone found an envelope, they were asked to tweet a selfie with their golden ticket, including the charity of their choice and #hiddenfundraising, and Easyfundraising would make the donation on their behalf.Over £1,100 has been donated through the campaign, with easyfundraising.org.uk doubling each donation made by members of the public. Local Birmingham causes Craft Space, Mary Stevens Hospice, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, West Midlands Fire Service Band and Birmingham REP have all received donations.Caroline Adams, Head of Marketing at easyfundraising.org.uk, said:“Following the success of last year, taking Hidden Fundraising to Birmingham has continued to prove how easy it can be to donate to charity, which is exactly what we stand for at easyfundraising.org.uk. We are delighted by the success and being able to help more great causes.“We’d like to thank the generosity of the Birmingham public and for their support of charities both local and national. One of our biggest challenges is spreading the word about how to raise money for free while shopping online, so we hope this can encourage people to continue collecting free donations!“To date, we’ve raised over £10 million for more than 65,000 causes and we’re committed to seeing those numbers continue to grow.” Tagged with: games Individual giving Midlands Howard Lake | 5 November 2015 | News Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Hidden golden envelopes reap donations for Birmingham charities

He was a senior student at the Faculty of International Studies at Thai Nguyen University in northern Vietnam until arrested on 21 March on a charge of “anti-state propaganda” under article 88 of the penal code.His crime was to have managed two blogs since 2015, Tuan Viet Nam (Vietnam Week) and Bao Tham Nhung (Corruption Newspaper), for which he created a Facebook page. He also managed two other Facebook accounts, Tuan Bao Viet Nam (Vietnam Weekly) and Dan Chu TV (Democracy TV), and two YouTube channels, Viet Bao TV and Vietnam Online.Bui Hieu Vo, a 55-year-old blogger, was arrested four days before Khanh. Yet another blogger, Dao Quang Thuc, was arrested on 5 October. He is charged under article 79 of the penal code with “activities aimed at overthrowing the government.”“In a country where the government dictates the editorial policies of the state media, the information provided by Khanh, Vo and Thuc was clearly in the public interest,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“Trying to investigate corruption or the environment does not mean you are seeking to overthrow the government. The Communist Party’s current Politburo needs to realize that by prosecuting its citizens in this iniquitous manner, Vietnam is losing all credibility, both in civil society’s eyes and on the international stage.”The United Nations issued a firm condemnation of Vietnam three months ago for failing to respect fundamental rights, including the right to inform. Eyes will turn back to Vietnam when the central city of Danang hosts an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in November.RSF is therefore participating in a coalition with nine other international and Vietnamese human rights organizations that are this week launching #StopTheCrackdownVN, a campaign to end the Vietnamese regime’s persecution of those who try to use the right to inform.According to RSF’s tally, around 25 bloggers and citizen-journalists are currently detained. This unprecedented crackdown on news and information providers began a year ago with the arrest on 10 October of Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, a woman who blogged under the name of Me Nam (Mother Mushroom).After more than six months in pre-trial detention, Quynh was sentenced on 29 June to ten years in prison under 88 of the penal code. She is in poor health, with atrophying arm and leg muscles, according to her mother, who has called for renewed international pressure on Vietnam.Vietnam is ranked 175th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

In an open letter today, Reporters Without Borders urged Microsoft chairman Bill Gates to raise the issues of online censorship and the repression of cyber-dissidents when he has Chinese President Hu Jintao to dinner at his home in Seattle on 18 April at the start of Hu’s visit to the United States.“Dear Mr. Gates,We would like to ask you discuss Internet censorship, an issue of which you are undoubtedly aware, when you dine with President Hu on 18 April. We would also like you to mention our concerns about the repression of Chinese cyber-dissidents – people who use the Internet to advocate democracy – 48 of whom are currently in prison in China.As you may know, our organisation has been campaigning for many years to get the major Internet sector corporations to behave ethically when operating in repressive countries.As part of our efforts, we have written several letters to executives in your company expressing concern about certain Microsoft practices – letters that have not been answered. We disapprove of your company’s decision to censor the Chinese version of your blog tool MSN Spaces. This service automatically rejects search strings such as “4 June” (the date of the Tiananmen Square massacre) or “human rights in China.” We were also shocked by Microsoft’s decision last December to close down the blog of a very popular Chinese blogger, Michael Anti, as a result of pressure from the Chinese authorities.There is a need for Internet sector companies to begin to reflect about the consequences of their activities in countries such as China.With a view to advancing the debate on this issue, we issued six concrete proposals in January for how companies could respect free expression while pursuing their activities. For example, we proposed banning search engines and content providers from installing automatic filters that censor so-called “protected” key words such as “human rights” and “democracy.” We also suggested that any request for the closure of a site hosted by a US company should require the approval of a US court, and that the same should apply to requests for information about your clients.We are also supporting the Global Online Freedom Act, a bill proposed to the US House of Representatives in February by Rep. Christopher Smith that would regulate the operations of Internet companies in repressive countries.We thank you in advance for taking account of our request.”The letter is signed by Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.

June 19, 2017 Masked men with machetes and knives attack four media outlets Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores the simultaneous attacks that masked men armed with machetes and knives launched against four radio and TV stations in Gabon’s capital, Libreville, on 16 June in an attempt to get them to broadcast a threatening video message by a former presidential candidate. The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa GabonAfrica Condemning abuses ViolenceFreedom of expression News Reports November 27, 2020 Find out more GabonAfrica Condemning abuses ViolenceFreedom of expression Weekly seized from Gabon’s newsstands to go further RSF_en Receive email alerts News Gabonese journalist could spend New Year’s Eve in prison December 31, 2019 Find out more Organisation Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Gabon The four media outlets targeted by the presumed supporters of former presidential candidate Roland Désiré Aba’a Minko were TV+, Radio Africa No. 1, Gabon Télévision and Kanal 7. Minko’s message called for the president’s resignation. At TV+, a privately-owned opposition TV channel, employees were forced to lie on the ground and a “bomb” was placed among them. At Radio Africa No. 1, a pan-African radio station, employees were threatened with machetes and knives and a “bomb” inside a bag. Both bombs turned out to be fakes. The attackers managed to get into state-owned Gabon Télévision but quickly left when the security forces arrived. They tried to get into Kanal 7 but failed because it was closed. As Radio Africa No. 1 did not have the technical means to broadcast the assailants’ video message, it was only broadcast by TV+. “We strongly condemns these intolerable and unprecedented attacks on Gabonese media outlets, said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. We welcome the fact that an investigation is under way and we hope that all possible light will be shed on the responsibilities of the assailants without obstructing freedom of expression and information in Gabon.” Initially a candidate in last August’s presidential election, Minko stood down two days before the poll, urging his supporters to vote for the main opposition candidate, Jean Ping. In the message that was finally broadcast only by TV+ for about 15 minutes, Minko threatened to set off bombs in government locations if President Ali Bongo did not resign in favour of Ping within 72 hours. Minko subsequently turned up with a fake bomb at the offices of the European Union delegation, where he was arrested without putting up any resistance. Franck Nguema, the head of TV+, filed a complaint the same day and referred the matter to the ministry of defence and interior. The justice department has opened a judicial investigation. The entire Gabonese political class, including Ping’s spokesperson, has condemned the attacks. President Bongo’s widely disputed reelection eight months ago set off a major political crisis and led to attacks on media outlets of all tendencies. International Criminal Court representatives are due to begin a three-day visit to Gabon tomorrow to investigate the post-election violence. Gabon is ranked 108th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, having fallen 13 places since 2015.

Elijah Nouvelage/Getty Images(BEAUREGARD, Ala.) — A Native American tribe in Alabama has donated $184,000 to help cover the funeral costs of the 23 people killed by powerful tornadoes that hit a small town in Alabama last week.“This disaster occurred so quickly and affected so many families who had no way to prepare to cover the cost to put their loved ones to rest,” Stephanie Bryan, CEO and chairman of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, told ABC News. “We live in an area that is prone to tornadoes and other natural disasters, so this a tragedy that strikes close to home in many, many ways.”Bryan said that Lee County Coroner Bill Harris reached out to the tribe for financial aid in the aftermath of the tornadoes. Beauregard, a small town within Lee County, was torn apart by two tornadoes on March 3.Initially, the tribe had agreed to donate $50,000, but Harris said it wasn’t enough, Harris told ABC News.“[The tribe] said, ‘Tell us what it would take to cover all of it,’” Harris told ABC News. “I told them [$184,000] and they said, ‘Fine.’”“I cannot thank them enough,” Harris added. “They have really stepped up to the plate on this one.”Bryan said that this isn’t the first time the tribe provided natural disaster relief aid to a neighboring community, but it is the largest single donation the tribe has made to a county under her leadership.The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is the only federally recognized tribe of Native Americans in Alabama. The tribe has nearly 3,000 members, according to Bryan.The two tornadoes tore through a roughly one-square-mile area of Beauregard, according to authorities. The storm caused the highest tornado death toll in the United States since 2013, with all 23 people dying from the first tornado, according to the National Weather Service. At least three children — ages 6, 9 and 10 — were among the victims.One of those victims was Taylor Thornton, a 10-year-old who was visiting her best friend when the storm struck. Funeral services for Thornton were held March 8.That same day, President Donald Trump visited Alabama to survey the damage caused by the tornado. Beauregard residents hope the president’s visit will bring more resources to the area. However, Harris also said that there have been many other generous donors in addition to the Poarch Creek Indians.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
