Tragedy in Charleston South Carolina. Let's Stop the Hate.
Organized by: Lorie Kopenhaver
"If you really want to receive joy and happiness, than serve other with all you heart. Lift their burden, and your own burden will be lighter" ~Ezra Taft Benson
In the midst of the catastrophic hate crime that took place during bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, in Charleston, S.C. my goal is to raise money for the families who lost their loved ones. Nine innocent people are dead. Their families and community are forever marked by this illustration of racial discrimination. The members of this church demonstrate what forgiveness is, and what it means to come together and pull through a tragedy. Their response of forgiveness alone, have greatly inspired me to help. Money will never give back what they lost, however, I believe we can help contribute to the unexpected funeral expenses and the rebuilding of a community that will never be the same.
My plan is to reach a goal totaling $15,000. I will donate the money fully to the members of the families effected. I intend on going out in my community, talking to people, using social media, and this website to reach this goal. I would graciously appreciate any donation you are willing to give in order to help. Thank you in advance for your generousity or just spreading the word for this cause.
