Help Ft. Laud. Home Invasion Victims

$10,870 of $10k goal

Raised by 246 people in 32 months
Justin Young   BOCA RATON, FL
A co-worker of mine was the victim of a brutal home invasion robbery last night in Fort Lauderdale.

The story is being prominently reported on every major local news outlet, and you can read an accurate version of the events HERE.

They lost everything of value that they own including their (leased) car, cell phones, electronics, identification, jewelry, cash, credit cards, etc., not to mention the physical injuries and emotional trauma they are experiencing. They have no renter's insurance, have no family in the area, and are a young couple just starting out in life.

We are taking up a collection for them at our office tomorrow, and I figured why not put it out there for anyone else who may have the heart and the means to help.

Christmas is just over 24 hours away. Even a $5 donation will help.

Feel free to email me with any questions you may have and I will be happy to answer them to the best of my knowledge and ability.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Justin, you may want to raise that goal again. We've got the K-State nation involved and Luis is part of the family.

For one of the hardest working players in KSU history. I wish I could give more. I couldn't give enough to even come close to what you gave to K-State. I'm glad someone involved "The Family." I have no doubt in my mind you will get all and more than you need.
