Funds will go to cover burial/hospital costs and support the family.

Delfino Mora, a disabled senior and father of 12 was collecting cans in a Chicago alley when 3 teens assaulted him and left him to die.
The intended goal was to simply knock Mr. Mora out playing a game called 'Pick 'em Out and Knock 'em Out' where young people select at random a hapless victim and try to knock them out with one punch. Mr. Mora, vulnerable in an alley, was punched once in the face, unable to defend himself due to a disabled right arm, he fell hitting his head on the concrete rendering him unconscious and with a severe brain injury. Mr. Mora lay dying in the alley until a passerby found him and called for help. He later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
The three teens could be heard laughing in the video one of them uploaded to Facebook.
My hope is that people will open their eyes and send the message that this and other incidents like it must stop. We can bring awareness and help his family cover the burial and hospital expenses by demonstrating that we do not accept that this is what has become of our youth and our culture. Your money will help a family that could really use the support and love at this difficult time.
