Gay Bashed. Again.
Even when you’re not?
On October 9th, 2013, my brother was savagely beaten by an unknown attacker. A man he had never met kicked and punched him and left him bleeding with a broken jaw and 4 broken teeth, all because he mistook him for being gay.
My name is Robin Street, I'm Kerry's brother. I started this campaign to help raise funds to pay for my brothers dental work. The attack has left him beaten, bruised, bewildered and now it threatens to leave him broke to boot.
What We Need From YouAnything you can spare really, even a single dollar brings us closer to our goal and every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated.
Any additional funds that we receive above and beyond the costs will be donated to groups that are against violence and discrimination toward the LGBT community and people in general.
We have all been touched by violence in some way in our lives no matter who we are, or what creed or life choices we follow whether personally, through friends and family or through hearing it on the news. It affects us all and we feel it as a community.
When acts like these are perpetrated it's easy to become jaded and think that there is no good left in the world, but that's where you come in! You can make a difference! You can be the hero that rights the wrong and saves the day! You have an opportunity to help get one victim back on his feet with a smile on his face and that can make a world of difference.
Other Ways You Can Help
If you just can't afford to spare any money, we understand, times are tight and bills need to get paid. While we will sincerely appreciate every cent that comes in, you can also help by spreading this around and getting the word out. There are bad people in this world, let's not let them win!
- Post this on your social media site of choice and encourage your friends to check it out and help if they can.
- Use the Indiegogo share tools to help us spread the word!
Thank you to any and all supporters from the deepest parts of my heart for your kindness and generosity, you are what's good in this world!
