Support For Richard Pryor Jr.

Donation protected
Hi, My name is Eric, and I'm setting up this fundraiser for my dear friend Richard Pryor Jr. . If the name sounds familiar and wondering "Is he related to the famous comedian Richard Pryor?", Yes! And he needs our help!

With the lock-down, Richard catching and surviving COVID-19 three times (even being vaccinated), Not being able to return to his job, not able to preform on stage, and his on-going chronic back pain has unfortunately set him behind and pumped the breaks on past, present, and future opportunities. Richard had a few back surgeries in the past, the pain is still there. His Family are in support of Richard, but their support can only go so far. Speaking with him recently and finding out the hardships he is enduring is heart breaking. Richard is not on disability, or any other assistance at this moment. All of these things has prevented him to work and has effected his livelihood.

Richard has worked hard and has fought through so much, I'm surprised how he stayed positive through it all. One time I saw him paying for somebodies medication at the pharmacy in Chicago because they didn't have insurance and couldn't afford it. Always lending a helping hand to others even if he doesn't have the means. Thats the type of person he is. Yes, his father was one of the most successful and loved comedians of all time, but he is not apart of his father Estate unfortunately. Richard would never ask for anything from anyone. So I'm doing it for him!

Some know, but if you don't, Richard came out with a book called "In A Pryor Life". The advance from the publishing company went to the writer for his services. Richard still hasn't seen any profit yet which is concerning.

His closest friends, family and I want to see Richard in a good place. Richard is a talented, beautiful, and a worthy soul that just needs a little help right now. If you could please donate what you can ,we can at least get Richard's head above water, relive him of these financial burdens before they get worse, and help him sustain what he already has. He's lost so much already. I can't stand back and see him suffer like this anymore. It would mean the world to me, and of course to Richard. We're grateful for whatever you can provide.
