Let's unite to raise money for Ramaine Hill's family to help with expenses related to his sudden & tragic death. Thanks for your support!

The senseless gang violence in the great city of Chicago needs to stop. The feuding is spilling over and impacting civilians like Ramaine Hill who have NO involvement with gang activity. On Saturday, August 31, 2013, Ramaine Hill was shot on his way to work in Old Town, and a day later passed away due to gunshot injuries to his head, neck, chest and back. Two years prior, Ramaine was mistakenly shot by a local gang member, and later helped to put the shooter in jail. It is thought that the shooting on 8/31 was retaliation by the same gang for his testimony. Ramaine was a soft spoken and caring 22 year old young man, who leaves behind a two year old son, Ramaine Jr (RJ), and an extensive group of loving family and friends. The funds raised via this website will be used to assist the family with residual medical costs, funeral and burial arrangements, necessities for his son, as well as any unforeseen expenses due to his sudden death. Please DONATE to help us honor Ramaine, and lighten the family's burden as they cope with the loss of this special young man... a father, son, brother, cousin, nephew, and friend. Thank you, and god bless.

**** We have a very important and heart warming update to share. Ramaine was an organ donor and he has saved three lives, and counting! A special child under the age of 18 received his heart and one of his kidneys, so even through Ramaine's death, he is bringing life.
