UPDATE 12.22.11: So the result of one fax to one news organization resulted in the desired effect and we will continue to contact select agengies. But news organizations are only one of the groups that are interested in this injustice. Churches have always shown compassion toward the plight of our son and I have created a “Prayer Request” .docx file which you can download here-> fax_church to fax to any Religious establishment with a fax machine. It’s very easy to locate the numbers by doing a google search for the term “wilmington nc church fax” replacing wilmington nc with the location you are interested in canvasing, such as “knoxville tn church fax” etc. The idea of mercy is a lesson that Jesus Christ brought to earth and is a philosophy that is typically practiced in our courts, especially when the accused is a first timer. Our son has yet to be shown that mercy. If a muslim can be afforded the right to be sworn in on a koran/quran in a court of law, should my son not be afforded the Christian principal of mercy as taught by Jesus? Thanks for your assistance. It’s really starting to have a positive effect. If we can get the churches support, it will go a long way in helping to FREEALEXANDER ….
UPDATE 12.19.11: So just as I suspected faxing politicians had no effect. But, it’s part of the process. Because now, we can claim to the media outlets that are about to be informed, that we did our best to notify the powers that be. Below please find a .docx file named fax_media. If you would like to fax this press release just open it and fax away to your local newspapers/news broadcasts/etc. You can find their contact info by searching google for “Fax number for WLOS” replacing WLOS with the call letters or newspaper name you’re targeting. Or if you’d prefer you can email them using the same .docx file. I expect this phase will result in some actual responses, so it may be best if you leave the contact details found within the file intact. fax_media.docx

Did you know that you can fax for free right from your computer? Many services exist now that allow you to send 2 faxes per day even without a subscription. And the process is very simple even if you’re only somewhat internet savey. Fax the candidate of your choice. It could have an immediate impact, minus all the weeks of waiting. According to the above website “Congressional mail security screening can delay postal letters by a few weeks.” So to speed up this process I am asking everyone who is concerned to copy one of the attached templates, change the details to make it your own and fax it to an official, or lots of officials. If we can find Alexander a friend in Washington, it would greatly increase the chance that someone in a position of power could simply change his sentencing structure to concurrent, which would allow him to come home. If that person were a congressman or senator it would nearly ensure his release. But we can’t expect them to repair this situation unless they are aware of it. Please take the time to send as many faxes as you can. You will find a list of internet fax service providers below. Some free, some pay. As officials are notified their name will be added here (please forward those you’ve contacted to me by using our “contact form” or simply enter the info as a ‘new comment’ on this page) and any subsequent repsonse attributed to that official will also be attached. Alex’s mother and I are praying for a Christmas Miracle for our son. Thank you for your consideration.
The following services allow you to send free faxes:
http://www.gotfreefax.com/ – Send up to two free faxes per day. Ad free cover page.
http://faxzero.com/ – Send up to two free faxes per day. 30 Day Free Trial also available. Actual premium service is $10
http://www.myfax.com/free/ – Send up to two free faxes per day, up to 9 pages.
YOU WILL NEED: To download our cover letter and whichever of the doc files found below you prefer, or simply type your own words to include in your fax. You will need to include Alexander’s DOC#, which can be found within each of the fax documents. Another thing to mention I suppose is, these are Office 2007 files. While earlier versions of office will probably open these, it would probably break the formatting I’ve installed surrounding the header(s) and the photo. If you need the files in 2003 format please don’t hesitate to let me know by using the contact page. I’ll reformat them and include them here.

*This cover letter is designed to grab attention. Please us it on faxes sent on Alex’s behalf between now and Christmas: coverletter
This document is for immediate family members to send: fax_immediate
This document is for concerned citizens to send: fax_concerned
This document is for disgruntled taxpayers to send: fax_taxpayers
Let’s contact as many officials as possible between now and Christmas. They are in Washington right now, pretty much sequestered by the president in lou of an agreement pending on a bill (ironically, a spending bill). If we can get this in front of them right now, it stands the chance of making a big impact. Also, don’t hesitate to fax your local news agencies as well as prominent celebrities. Never underestimate the relationship between those 3 entities; politicians, celebrities and media. They are profoundly similar. God Bless you for your time and attention, and Merry Christmas.
