Susquehanna Bank that seeks to take this Farm

The Thorpe Organic Farm's future deserves to be saved.  Bait and switch is a typical American story lately - the Thorpes should not have been switched from a farm loan to a high interest rate loan.  Susequehanna Bank: The community wants the Thorpe Farm and not liquidation.  

Most ironic, the Susquehanna Bank (a bank using a Native American name) did this to Thorpe, a Native Americanfarmer. Please donate: Friends and neighbors have created three different international petitions 1) for funding help to this mortgage crisis: http://bit.ly/Zy9qSn and 2) the barn raising after Sandy storm damage: http://bit.ly/11hK7V5.  3) Legal Eagle Help: http://bit.ly/14i6wpO . Thorpes couldn't raise the money to satisfy the bankruptcy judge this month. But the previous Causes petition goal was successful - over 2,000 signatures and new supporters, http://bit.ly/WW6mC1.

We will raise the needed funds by June so that pristine land and fresh water streams will be protected in the hands of the Thorpes. We know the bank's plans are to liquidate; flip to housing developers. We want the bank to allow the Thorpes to keep their property. If you have ideas, let us know.  Sympathetic celebrities have been contacted because the Thorpe Farm represents us all.

Signed,

Melissa Scott

URGENT:  If international fundraising petitions help to save the Thorpe Organic Farm in the next eight weeks, a growing number of supporters will still have to convince the predatory bank to let the Thorpes to keep their pristine, historic farmland with fresh water, near where Gen. George Washington crossed the Delaware. Your signature counts.  If you believe that this organic family farm should win over housing developers, please sign so that the Thorpes can show the bank widespread support for the farm. It's the last chance: 1) for funding help to this mortgage crisis: http://bit.ly/Zy9qSn and 2) the barn raising after Sandy storm damage: http://bit.ly/11hK7V5.  3) Legal Eagle Help: http://bit.ly/14i6wpO
