Please don't forget the SIGIS fundraiser for Shreveport Police Cpl. Breck Scott! As the original posts filter on down the blog I'll post the occasional reminder so we can keep it going.
Cpl. Scott is in Houston now undergoing four separate surgeries in an attempt to save his leg which was injured in an accident while he was on duty last April. The leg hasn't healed properly and he now has a terrible bone infection.
The first surgeries are to clean out the wound and help clear the infection. Then in a "high tech" surgery they'll go back in, break the leg, and put on an apparatus that will stretch his leg and allow the bones to reconnect. Very painful and a long healing time.
Cpl. Scott's family is there for support but can't we do something to support them? As I said before, police officers put their lives on the line for us every day and don't get paid nearly enough for it. If you're in a position to help, even a little, SIGIS is running a fundraiser to supplement the fund that has been set up for Cpl. Scott at Capital One bank.
You can donate through this blog (link in the sidebar near the top) or you can donate directly to Capital One. Make the check out to Breck Scott, put "For Deposit Only" on the back, and reference acct. number 5732676084. The address for Capital One Bank is 333 Travis Street, Shreveport, LA 71101.
Every thing that hits my tip jar until August 15 will go to the Capital One fund.
And to those of you who have already donated, thanks a million! We're in triple digits now!
Update: Thanks Sarah for your donation!
Update: Thanks Phil for your donation!
And thanks Stacy and Zilla both for your donations!
Remember! No amount is too small! Donate what you can spare today!
(Note: Cpl. Scott, as far as I know, does not even read this blog or know of its existence and he is in no way affiliated with this blog, the author or the political opinions expressed here.)
