Many in our Pinecam Mountain Community are eager to help the Victims of the Aurora Theater shooting and assist all to move forward positively with life.
Sometimes we just don't know how but Pinecam's Board wants to try to help.
We will compile a list here to identify the various ways to do that.
This is the latest information 9NEWS has received:
Visit GivingFirst.org to donate to nonprofits supporting the victims and families of the Aurora movie theater shooting
Bonfils is currently overwhelmed with appointments for blood donation in response to the incident. They are no longer taking walk-in donations. There are a few spots available for the coming week. They are looking for all blood types. Call 303-363-2300 or visit www.bonfils.org to schedule an appointment.
For information regarding Crime Victim Compensation, contact the District Attorney's Office at 720-874-8620
An organization has organized a "Take Back the Movies" event. Here are details: "On Aug. 4, we're taking Denver to the movies. We're going to go to as many theaters as we can and pay for everyone's movie tickets. Our message is simple: 'Tonight, the movie's on us. Go, enjoy. This isn't a fundraiser, it's not a memorial service. Some jerk tried to steal a night of fun from all of us. Tonight, we're giving it back.'" If you want to help us take Denver to the movies, you can donate here, http://takebackthemovies.blogspot.com/. All proceeds will go directly to buying tickets at movie theaters in Aurora and the greater Denver area.
Lotsa Helping Hands is a free online service that was created more than five years ago to answer the question, "what can I do to help?"Open Communities help more than one individual or family - the number is unlimited - and the members of the Community may not know all, or any, of the people being helped. Help for Aurora enables volunteers to lend a hand and community members to request help online at www.lotsahelpinghands.com/aurora
"The Dark Knight Rises" composer Hans Zimmer has composed a song dedicated to the Aurora theater shooting victims. If you buy the song, 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Aurora Victim Relief organization. Listen to and buy the song here.
From the Denver Channel (7)
"The Aurora Victim Relief Fund has been established by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and the Community First Foundation to meet the immediate and long-term needs of victims and their families.
"We are very grateful and encouraged by the support so far for the victims in Aurora," Hickenlooper said in a news release. "The needs will be great, and we look forward to seeing the fund grow exponentially. This money will help those impacted by this tragedy begin to recover and rebuild their lives."
Donations to the fund can be made online through GivingFirst.org.
At the request of the Aurora Police Department, the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (COVA) is also coordinating donations on behalf of all victims and their families. Any donations received will be distributed to those affected based on need.
Go online for more information and to make a donation. Donations by check should be made out to COVA and include "Aurora Tragedy" in the memo line. Mail checks to COVA at 90 Galapago St., Denver, CO, 80223."
