Paul Castaway's family needs help burying him.

Some have you have seen the DU OP's about Paul Castaway.

Panich52's OP

Or newspaper articles focusing on his killing by Denver Police.

Denver's Overlooked Police Brutality Problem

Or maybe you might have seen #JusticeforPaulCastaway or #NativeLivesMatter

Paul Castaway was the Rosebud Sioux man shot multiple times by police while he held a knife to his own neck. A shooting police claimed was 'Self Defense'.

And his mother, Lynn Eagle Feather, needs help with funeral expenses.

There is a donation page up at Fundly - https://fundly.com/justice-for-paul-castaway?ft_src=twtshare_mobile

I have to admit I hadn't heard of 'Fundly' before, but I tossed in a few bucks, and I'm hoping other people here might do the same.

(Edit - I also don't know what relation 'Dave Strano', the contact person in Denver Colorado is to Castaway, so as always with online donations, there's always a chance it's not legit.)

(Second Edit - Google suggests Dave Strano is a community organizer in Denver who gets arrested at protests, heh.)

2. I didn't remember seeing a link to the funding page here.

I only came across it in my twitter feed, so figured I'd spread it for at least a few non-twitter using types.
