Direct Help to Bloggers

Direct Help to Bloggers

Many people want to do something to help the bloggers directly. The most
important thing is to read them, talk about them, comment on their
blogs, share their blogs with others, keep them IN THE PUBLIC EYE, which
is a shield that helps to protect them.

If you want to help with a donation, one way to do that, from the
comfort of your home, is to put money in their cell phone accounts.
This allows them to KEEP communicating, Twittering, making and accepting
calls and text messages within Cuba and overseas.

Update: As of 14 January 2011, the White House has announced that any
American may send remittances to a Cuban, even if they are not related
to each other. The limit is $500 per quarter. If you are interested in
helping the bloggers in this way, you can find their emails on their
individual sites and contact them about where you might send a
remittance. Some of them have PayPal accounts.


Bloggers' phone numbers are listed below; these will be updated if we
get more numbers.
