Stephanie Leigh needs our help!


I will get more"Likes"than Scott WalkerEveryone, I got to know Stephanie over the last several months as the voice behind the incredibly popular Facebook page "I will get more "likes" than Scott Walker".  Stephanie spends countless hours gathering and distributing information about the recall effort and the protests in general.  She follows the Occupy movement and many other liberal causes that led her fan count to reach nearly 10,000.  Stephanie is also involved with running several other pages including "The Heroic Wisconsin 14" and "Scott Walker is a Douchebag".  Together these Facebook pages have over 60,000 fans.  
Stephanie and I have never met but we communicate regularly because our missions are similar - essentially to disseminate information about the Wisconsin Protests and to bring together those who want to participate in actively helping Wisconsin gain back what was lost under the brief but fierce reign Scott Walker and the Fitzgerald brothers.  Defend Wisconsin News Round Up sticks to issues that are relevant to Wisconsin protests, while the information shared by Stephanie is far wider in its scope.  


Recently, I learned that Stephanie is struggling.  She has lost a job she held for years, her family is not doing much better than she is, and the unemployment took its time to get to her.  I, myself, do not know all the particulars but I know rent and internet access are a struggle and these are not that expensive.   I also know that there are tens of thousands of people who spend time daily, following the news that Stephanie links and re-links.

We need Stephanie Leigh and the work that she does.  This person has single-handedly brought together thousands of people who care about what is going on in Wisconsin since Scott Walker took power.  In February and March when we were at the Capitol en masse, people from all over the world called and ordered food for protesters.  Now it's the time for us to help one person who helps so many of us stay informed like a one-person information booth.

I know that whether we raise $60,000 or $600, it will help Stephanie continue to do her important work.  Just imagine if one day those pages went silent.  Not only would it limit the sources of information that all of us rely and expect to be there, but it would send a message about our resolve to those on the other side of this important debate.

Here's the link to the donation website I sat up.  Do yourself and our democracy a favor and put in a few bucks!
