Fundraiser For Tamir Rice’s Family
As you are aware of, 12-year-old Tamir Rice was extrajudicially executed by the police in Cleveland, Ohio on November 22, 2014. His family is suffering as they remain without complete answers. His mother, Samaria Rice, is now in a homeless shelter and really needs help, as the pain of living so closely to where her son was executed is unbearable.
I spoke with Adner Marcelin, Communications Manager & Law Clerk at Parks & Crump, LLC, who is representing the family in this manner. He confirmed that they are accepting donations. Anyone wishing to send cards, letters of encouragement or contributions in the form of a check (made out to ESTATE OF TAMIR RICE) may do so by mail at:
The Estate of Tamir Rice
c/o Parks & Crump
LLC 240 N. Magnolia Drive
Tallahassee, FL 32301
While checks and money orders are preferred because the mother gets ALL of the money, if you can only contribute online, there is a VERIFIED fundraising account: http://www.gofundme.com/ricememorialfund.
(I understand how most of us feel about GoFundMe as a company; however this is where the fund was set up, outside of our choice.)
Please support (DONATE or SIGNAL BOOST via reblog/tweet/Facebook) this family as they still have to get through daily life even in pursuit of what ultimately will never make up for the loss of their child and will be non-existent or questionable justice at best. Keep them in your positive thoughts.❤
