"The power of a waterfall is nothing but a lot of drips working together."
The facts are fairly simple in this case. My husband is innocent. He has been wrongly convicted of a crime, and he deserves the chance at a fair trial to prove his innocence. My children deserve to have their father home, and I deserve to have my husband back. In order to make this happen we need a lawyer. Lawyers for this kind of proceeding cost $100,000. We don't have this kind of money. However, we will not give up. We will do everything we can to bring Mike home!
Everyone has something that they can offer, and nothing is too small. I like to think of the Dr. Seuss story of Horton Hears a Who, where the difference was made by the smallest who finally made a little sound and saved their world. We are facing an endeavor that seems insurmountable, but if I have learned anything in the last 5 years it is to just keep moving and putting one foot in front of the other, and that is what we will do. But we need help. Here are the ways you can help bring attention and legal services to Mike's situation.
Ellen Gegeneres takes nominations for a deserving person in need. Consider taking a few minutes to nominate Michael Clark. This could help bring attention to his case and the innocence projects working to help those wrongly convicted.
We're gathering a collection of donated services, products, and vacation rentals which could be traded for legal services or auctioned to raise funds. Let us know if you can contribute. Every little donation will make a difference.
We need to raise $100,000 to pay the legal fees that will bring Mike home. Cash donations are one way to get there. No amount is too small. Together, all our little drops will overflow the bucket and get us to what feels like a very daunting goal.
