Hello All!
My name is Shant'a Briggs-Sawyer. I am from White Plains, NY, but currently live in Newark, NJ. I am a wife and a new mother, whose heart goes out to a fellow mother, we all know, who has recently experienced unspeakable pain! 

By now, we've all heard of the tragic death by murder of Mr. Eric Garner by an NYPD officer on July 17th, 2014. Eric Garner was a husband and the father of 6 children. His family has lost their provider, and will no doubt suffer financial hardship after this tragic loss.

Please help us to reach our goal of $10,000 to donate to Eric Garner's wife and family. EVERY PENNY OF MONEY COLLECTED WILL GO TO MRS. GARNER (I have no access to the funds) and will hopefully aid in providing for their children, her legal fees, and whatever she may need to make this terrible time a bit easier for her. Let's get together in support of our sister in this struggle, and donate whatever we can afford, to help.

Feel free to contact me, via facebook or here on this page for any questions or concerns you have concerning your donations. I want to be as transparent and forthcoming as possible to put your minds at ease. My ONLY GOAL HERE is to help our sister in her time of need.  

Thank you in advance.
