All donations for this plugin go directly to the Free Kareem Coalition
Kareem Amer is an Egyptian blogger who is being wrongfully imprisoned and
tortured by the Egyptian government for exercising free speech in blogs, which
criticized certain aspects of corruption in the Muslim clergy and in the
Egyptian government. The Free Kareem Coalition, a non-profit team of free
speech advocates, primarily made up of Muslims, sponsored the creation of this
plugin to provide awarenes for the cause. It allows the display of a widget
promoting the group and creating awareness of the situation.
