I went to the bank yesterday. The Swedish bank “Handelsbanken” to open a special sacred, blessed bank account to put the very first donation to get back to the Akka who participate in our film. The very first money is a heart warming collection of money from the people of Borås Kyrka (Borås church) in Sweden. They gave me their complete collection the same evening as they asked me to do a lecture for them about working without bribes, destruction of ancient forests and the situation for the Akka today.
They listened to my lecture for almost 3 hours – and they did not ask for “the fun stuff”, they were strong enough to hear the truth on what is really happening. It was so nice to talk to them – then they gave a lot of love and I am not even a Christian! And after the love part they gave me their collected money to do good to the Akka people who participate in our film. That was a miracle of hope. My heart is warm for Borås kyrka. I am so proud for the trust these people put in me! Thank you!
Anyhow, yesterday I went to the bank to open a clean bank account connected to my company – a place to put collected money and for people who want to continue to donate – with clean I mean an account were the money given can grow without getting mixed with dirty money like money gained on bribes, guns, toxic farming, unjust working conditions, child labour, sexual violence/abuse, trafficking, drugs, mining industry, logging industry, car industry, etc destructive money-growing activities.
I thought it was possible – I live in a fairly clean country…and I have a gift of money of trust and love – but I was naive! The bank told me that a clean request “is impossible, we can not control the money we are making”. So – I opened a bank account with zero interest. And I asked the bank not to use or lend them out to dirty buisneess – but the bank could not garuantee that – they had no option for this. And I can not keep the money in a bag at home – so that was the best for now – a bit of an anticlimax. Still: I want no shit on these beautiful money but they might get abused in the care of Handelsbanken – I will pray for Handelsbanken to forget about them – I have done my best for now. We got to start somewere.
Soon I will write to the bank and suggest them a new way of saving money, were the bank actually do control which businesses are in question and where my saved money doesn’t get dirty through being lent out to dirty businesses somehow. Suddenly I do not want money from the bank. They feel really dirty. I hope it will be possible to clean them later.
This slightly clean bank account with zero interest is: 764 907 638-clearing 6681
If you want to participate in the collection to the Akka just put the amount of money you feel like in there and label them with your name. I will do my best to get those money all the way and to keep them as clean as possible. I will regularly show the income of the money coming in and the day the sum is large enough to make it possible to go back I will also clearly show what it has been used for. And I will publish all givers names when this is spoken about officially.
PS. If you are a human living outside of Sweden – please do send me an email through the contact on this homepage and I will give you details on how to transfer your money. DS.
