Go-Fund Me account raises over $40,000

2 Apr, 2015

A GoFundMe page called “Support Memories Pizza” set up to raise $35,000 for the restaurant gets $40,000 from more than 1,000 donors in five hours. The Gofundme page donations are now over $300,000.

After being interviewed by Dana Loesch on her television show on Blaze TV, we learned that the family may never even reopen the doors to their restaurant as the death threats and vicious online reviews continue to pour in from the arbiters of “tolerance.” My name is Lawrence Jones, and I’m one of the television opinion contributors on Dana’s show. Before the televised interview the producers discussed the situation…We all agreed: this family needs help to get through this assault. So we set up a GoFundMe page with the modest goal of $25,000. The intent was to help the family stave off the burdensome cost of having the media parked out front, activists tearing them down, and no customers coming in.
