Fundraiser for Dunbar Village Victims

Denver author Carleen Brice brought a fundraising initiative that was started by a number of writers to my attention. Author Tayari Jones has started an effort to help the mother and her son who were brutalized by a large number of juveniles in West Palm Beach, Florida this past June.
The attack was particularly brutal and is difficult to read. The story is here.
A group of authors are auctioning off signed books and for aspiring writers, manuscript critiques on ebay here.
If you’re not inclined to bid on any of the items, I hope you will consider sending a check to help the family.
Here’s the information on how to contribute to the victims:

Individuals who would like to donate money to the victims can go to any Wachovia Bank and donate to the St. Ann’s Victim’s Assistance Fund. Donations will go directly to the mother and her son.

St. Ann’s Catholic Church will accept donations. Checks can be made payable to the “Dunbar Village Victim Assistance Fund – St. Ann’s”. Donations can be mailed to: St. Ann’s Catholic Church, 310 N. Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33401
