I have just received an email from Avi which broke my heart. A blog mate of his has lost his five year old son under tragic and unexpected circumstances. Being directed to the blog site in question and all that was there was what I have already told. But there were two videos. Of father and child in question. I cannot bear to watch these videos. For all its briefness that post had me in tears. Its not my loss but I feel it all the same.
Avi has done something incredibly generous and selfless. Outpouring of support from complete strangers would seem (to me at least) shallow and strangely selfish. So Avi has set up a 'donation' system, though its not a registered charity so you need to get something in return. It has been devised that, in return for your donation, you can download some memorial graphics.
I cannot afford to make large or multiple donations, but I can help to spread the word. Please, everybody, take some time. Its a small donation to help ease the financial burden of a father who has just lost his son. But its more than that. Its a show of support.
