Chris is a 10-year-old boy who is currently paralyzed from the waist down after being hit by a stray bullet while attending a piano lesson on January 10th, 2008. Chris and his family face a difficult road ahead, and will need all the support and donations you can give. This blog is dedicated to keeping the public informed about how to help.

Bake sale donation drive a great success!

The bake sale donation drive hosted by the Crocker Highlands Elementary School in honor of Chris was a great success today. Hear about it here.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped and participated.

Wow, that is great... I'm sending off a check in response to the other post. I'm still in new years diet mode, so I'll pass on the cookie!

Please consider contacting some well-known local non-profit to accept donations, earmarked in Chris's name. A lot of wealthy people would be encouraged to make even larger gifts if they were assured their donations were tax deductable.. (sad, perhaps, but true.)

Thank you for the suggestion regarding donating through a non-profit organization for Chris. The family will be taking that into consideration.
