Some of our faith in humanity has been restored.

A GoFundMe initiative has raised enough money to move Samaria Rice out of a homeless shelter and into a new home after her heartbreak over the death of her son Tamir forced her to leave her home and move into a homeless shelter.

Rice couldn’t bear to reside in the home so close to the park where her son was shot and killed by cops in the middle of the day back in November. To Rice, the move into a homeless shelter felt necessary to maintain her current emotional and financial state. On top of a heavy heart still reeling from her son’s death, the legal fees of her civil rights lawsuit were beginning to mount.

Yet by the kindness of the Tamir Rice Memorial Fund, a GoFundMe campaign, over $46,000 has been raised. Through those donations, and with surviving kin by her side, it’s been confirmed that Rice has been able to move into a new home. The money will also help with the legal fees of her case for Tamir’s justice.
