    @Keela Too - this is your blog post? Thanks for the link!

    I think it's important to highlight that this is in part a call for donations. We've seen many posts in the past about this terrible situation and they've all called for the signing of petitions or writing of letters, which many of us have done already, so I think it's important to flag up that this calls for a new action: donating.

    The post says:

    Please talk about Karina's situation widely. Share this post, or others from the links below, and if you can make a contribution, no matter how small, towards the legal fees of Dr Stig Gerdes then perhaps consider doing so.

    The amount needed is estimated to be 100,000 Danish Kroner, that is £10,606 [or $18,145].

    On the 11th July the fund stood at £3045 [$5,209].​

    Do you think it would be a good idea to rename this thread something like, "Donate to Karina Hansen legal fighting fund: $18,000 needed, $5,000 already raised"?

    If you'd like to do that, tag Kina or report your own post and request the change.

    Good idea @Sasha so @Kina can you make the necessary change to the thread title please

    I probably should have put that in the blog post title itself too..... Ah well.... It can be tweeted/shared with the appeal I suppose. (Yes it's my blog post ;) )

    Hopefully lots of people will share this and any other posts folk have written... There needs to be a bit of a fuss kicked up - like the one for Justina.

    The case needs to gather momentum and clout!! And international scandal!!
