Help family of Good Samaritan slain in Brooklyn

On Friday, February 26, Yong Zheng, 46, went out to dinner with family in Sunset Park, when they saw an Asian man being viciously attacked and robbed.

With anti-Asian violence spiking across the country, Zheng did not hesitate to help. 

"He heard a robbery - he didn't know what was going on. He saw a crime, he tried to stop it," Jin Zhao, 39, said.
In the end, 6 people were injured. One died. The one who gave his life was Yong Zheng.

Zheng was a bus driver in Chinatown. He had two children, a 14-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old boy. Father and son share the same birthday in April, and always had a double celebration, now they will never get the chance to do that again.

Zhao, his wife, now his widow, stayed at home with the children while her husband worked. They are left with no income, and a collective, shattered heart.

I have no relationship with the family, but I saw many people asking online how they could help, and the best response was a picture of this business card:

I know many immigrants and non-English speakers struggle with technology, especially when there's a language barrier, so I thought I could help by setting up this web site in response to all the media attention and concern.

There's no time for them to learn how to do this, and several days after the crime, they have not done so. 

All money raised will be passed on, hopefully directly to the family and if not, to the benevolent organization.
