Hello. Chris Hondros has made mention of the Hassan Family Fund website that we've set up to directly help this family. Would you consider posting our URL in this comment for people seeking a way to help?

Here is an excerpt from a letter that Chris put out recently regarding helping:

Many of you expressed a desire to help the family; I'm happy to report that a website for donations has now been set up, http://www.hassanfamilyfund.org/. Money donated to the cause will first go to arranging medical care for Racan, a boy in the car who's spinal column was damaged by one of the bullets and will never walk again unless treatment outside of Iraq is arranged for him. (Humanitarian workers and others in Iraq are working toward this now.) Excess funds will go to the extended family (the Hassan's had nine children) and to civil projects in Tal Afar itself, most likely a school built to commemorate the deaths. Any help you can give will be appreciated.
