Funeral for Said Ali

Please assist with the funeral costs for Said Ali.

Our loving, cheerful, and caring brother was fatally shot on a quiet Sunday night in Toronto.

"Said Ali, 21, of Toronto, was found wounded near the intersection of Lawrence and Dufferin, just before midnight. He died in hospital.

One man who lives next to the plaza where the shots were fired said he heard at least seven shots as he was putting his daughter to bed."

We're reaching out to the community for your assistance with the funeral costs and prayers to support them through this difficult time.

His funeral was held at Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque  in Etobicoke.

Thank you.

Update, additional information about the campaign for gofundme's transparency policy to answer the following:

"Who you are
Where you're from
Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for
How the funds will be used (be specific as possible)
If you intend to withdraw the money, how you plan to send the funds to the parties you're raising money for or use the money on their behalf"

This campaign was set up on behalf of the family. I'm just the person to create the campaign, Nahyan Chowdhury, a friend of the family's. This isn't lead by any particular organization, the fundraising efforts were done by the many friends, family and supporters.

The funds will be given to the family, specifically, the mother. It will be withdrawn directly by myself, and the amount will be sent to the family via EMT. It's generally to cover the funeral and related expenses.
