This relates to the April 13 murders at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (see related Troth Blog posts at the bottom of this entry), and we are glad to see the Heathen community coming together in an expression of generosity and compassion. This effort is also a statement of the rejection of the agenda of hate.
We once again hail the victims of this tragedy:

hi! First, thank you for the generous donations we've received already from the Troth and Troth members! Would you be willing to post this link and message from me on your page? It's for a good cause and I appreciate it!
Hi everyone! I wanna start by thanking you all for all the support we’ve received for this effort so far. I know things have been quiet for a while, but we have 10 days left for the final push, and we’re close to our goal! I wanted to update everyone on what’s going on with the fund, as well.
I’ve spoken to the director of philanthropy at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, and they’ve already set up a permanent fund in memory of Cross’s victims. I’ve been assured the use of the funds is in line with the wishes of the families, and that’s where our donation is going to go. I’ve made sure they know who we are and why we’re donating, and the families are happy to accept.
Here is their website: http://www.facebook.com/l/eAQGFE9QHAQHpoyitDyLgRFYtViQbXbkCNs857wfmu3_ZQg/asoft9201.accrisoft.com/kcjcc/index.php?src=gendocs&ref=MemorialFund
So here we are, with 10 days left. I’m asking everyone to help up with a last social media blitz- even if you’ve already donated, please spread the word everywhere you can, and ask your friends and acquaintances to share it too! Let’s show the world what a force for good we can be! The ancient heathens valued community and generosity- let’s make them proud!
