Time is running out.. Tomorrow is the last day the Lakeside Victims Fund will be collecting money to help the families of those who were massacred in May.
Pay Pal will continue collecting through June 18th.
http://lakesidevictimsfund.weebly.com is the link to pay pal.

Our sincerest thanks to the two women who have stepped forward to help the young university student whose brother was one of the victims. He would have had to drop out of school since his family was just scraping by to help him go to school. The horrific loss of his brother totally destabilized the finances of the family.

One woman will pay for his tuition over the next few years and another answered our call to help him with his carfare and books. Her donation will help him over the next couple of months. More is still needed for him to continue as carfare runs 100P a day and books are expensive. If you would also like to help him, please PM us. The help is needed beyond the fund closing .

Tomorrow afternoon decisions will be made as to how much money each of the families will be given as we will have a very good idea of how much we have collected. The liaisons to the families have given us input and prioritized the need of each family. The money collected on Pay pal for the rest of the time it is open will be set up to pay any ongoing expenses such as psychological counseling.

Money will be disbursed on Tuesday. A full accounting will be posted in about one week once the pay pal collection closes. We will post it on all the forums and in the Guadalajara Reporter.

We can tell you now, your kindness and generosity will make a huge, positive difference to those who have suffered so tragically.
