It would appear that all the talkers are just that talkers. This innocent child needs help.

My $100.00 is headed her way. How about you?

Mary - check the # responses to the reeanctment in Paly -
maybe it you post there about donating money - the victim will get some attention?
I would hope that the fact that there are no responses here, does not mean that donations are not being sent.

Hope we can get a follow-up on this important drive?

Sent my check in yesterday, Mary. There are people out here who care, and hopefully more will join us.

The state of California provides generous support for victims of violent crime in terms of psychotherapy and medical treatment and this continues as long as needed.

The victim therefore does not require additional funds to cover these treatments

Sue --did you bother to read the story?
Some of the money will be used to buy the student a laptop so that she can study at home.
I have realized reading this forum that PA likes to project an image of a caring, progressive community. Actually PA is just like any other community in the world--some people are good and some people are cold-hearted and uncaring and selfish.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
