"My mother, Hyun Jung Grant (maiden name Kim), was one of the victims of the shootings in Atlanta, Georgia at Gold Spa. This is something that should never happen to anyone. She was a single mother who dedicated her whole life to providing for my brother and I. It is only my brother and I in the United States. The rest of my family is in South Korea and are unable to come. She was one of my best friends and the strongest influence on who we are today. Losing her has put a new lens on my eyes on the amount of hate that exists in our world. As much as I want to grieve and process the reality that she is gone, I have a younger brother to take care of and matters to resolve as a result of this tragedy."

"On the morning of February 3rd, Noel Quintana was on his way to the first of his two jobs, when he was violently attacked. His attacker slashed him from cheek to cheek with a box cutter on the L train. He was left bleeding profusely on the subway, nobody helped. His wound required nearly 100 stitches.  

Noel has not received any financial help since his attack. Any person who has suffered such a horrifying hate crime should not be left alone in the dark, worrying about coming up with the money to stay alive and healthy. Please donate or share, every little bit helps."

"Hi everyone, I am fundraising for my grandmother that was racially attacked today on 3-17-21 market street. I am amazed by her bravery. She was the one that defended herself from this unprovoked attack. But she is now suffering two serious black eyes and one that is bleeding unstoppably. Her wrist has also swelled up. She has been severely affected mentally, physically, and emotionally. She also stated that she is afraid to step out of her home from now on. This traumatic event has left her with PTSD. Although she has health insurance that covers the basics, there are still many medical expenses that cannot be covered on her own. She is a cancer survivor and she also has had diabetes for over 10 years now. The funds that we receive will be used to cover her medical expenses, her therapy treatment, and her bills that we will have to pay constantly from now on."

"Please donate to help Mr. Chak Keung Chan get through the hard times, he is a hard working truck driver who delivered from New York City to Syracuse and got beaten by few teens over the hate crime, he is the only bread winner in the family supporting his two kids and wife. With his condition now he is unable to pay his mortgage and bring food to the table, please help. We are all he’s got for us to give him help and support."
