Ashley Morris Fund – Please Help

Apr 6, 2008 by

A major voice in the New Orleans blogosphere has gone silent, widowing a Rollergirl and orphaning three tiny children. As
various local groups prepare a benefit we see major obstacles looming for the family including five figure expenses for the funeral. Please give what you can, even a few dollar here and there can mount up. There are needs that cannot wait on the fund raising events.

Please join the efforts of HumidCity, Defend New Orleans, NOLA Rising, WTUL, Tales of the Cocktail, The Big Easy Rollergirls, The Skull Club, L’Art Noir, and many more as we show the Morris Family what community really means!

Online Donations can be made at Remember Ashley Morris

    Brief mention on DK, maybe he/she would spread more word. Also, Kevin Sites is doing a People Of The Web project; Ashley was certainly such a person: http://potw.news.yahoo.com/ (Bottom of page, use the Let Us Know link for the form, or just email him.) Someone who knew him needs to do the intros, in case there are questions.

  2. As noted in the comments there, the site was a collaborative effort. I pulled together the paypal button and donations, Greg Peters did the actual web work, Maitri grabbed the domain and hosting.

    And we all did it for love of the big galoot.
