End of year thanks

By on Dec 5, 2012

Things have been a little quiet at aurorarise.org, but we’ve been busy! First and foremost, thank you all for your incredible support this year. Our work is far from done, despite the fact that theater shooting victims aren’t the focus of headlines anymore. So many still need help. If you’re looking to do any end-of-year giving, please consider making a tax deductible donation to Aurora Rise. Everything you give will be used towards our mission and work. We have BIG plans for 2013. We’re completing the final steps to convert Aurora Rise from a one-time incredible event to a fully-organized non-profit organization focused on helping any and all victims we can. (Not to bore y’all with the details, but IRS paperwork and IT switches? Not as much fun as it may sound.) People need help, many of whom are still suffering from lost wages, medical bills, unmet counseling needs and more. Next year we plan on expanding our reach by attending 3-4 major Comic Cons, holding several fundraisers, and working with anyone and everyone who wants to hold AR events in their region. The goal? Raising awareness and funds to help as many victims as we can. We still need your help, so please consider donating today to Aurora Rise. Thank you all for your support and patience as we get this worthy cause up and running. Here’s looking forward to a peaceful 2013. Love, All of us at Aurora Rise...
