Help fund the proposed January 8th Memorial

Tucson’s January 8th Memorial Foundation is currently raising funds to build the proposed January 8th Memorial in downtown El Presidio Park. See final plans here:http://www.tucsonsmemorial.org/memorial-site/final-design/

There is currently almost $7,000 raised in a Go Fund Me campaign, which you can donate any amount to:https://www.gofundme.com/january8thmemorial/donate.  Their goal is $1.5 M to be raised.  69 people have donated in the past 14 days.

“The January 8 Memorial Foundation was established in early 2012 to commemorate the tragic shooting that took place and our community’s response to it. (six died, 13 others wounded on January 8, 2011; this was an attempted assassination against then-CD 8  Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head and is now disabled).

The January 8 Memorial Foundation exists for one simple reason: To honor those who died and were injured on January 8, 2011 and to celebrate the extraordinary community response to that tragedy.

Our goal also is simple: The Foundation wants to a build a memorial to Jan. 8 and our vision is to make it a permanent and enduring part of our community. Once we achieve that goal, we will cease to exist.”
