Donating to Victims of the Aurora, Colorado Shooting

Published by at 2:30 pm under Be a Badass,National service

I have not yet been able to find any donation efforts specifically for the Aurora, Colorado shooting, but the National Organization for Victim Assistance accepts general donations here. I’m not familiar with NOVA’s track record, but the FBI’s Office for Victim Assistance lists them as a federal resource–in contrast, I’m a bit wary of charities which spring up in the wake of a disaster and haven’t yet impressed professionals in the field.

    My friend told me that the shooter was inspired by Bane, so Warner Bros. feels responsible for the shooting so they are shutting down Dark Knight Rises in some theaters…

    I think they are postponing some overseas premieres and limiting media exposure (e.g. calling off TV ads), but if you find any reports of domestic theaters removing the film, please let me know.

    According to Hollywood Reporter: “The studio never considered shutting down the release of the movie, a hugely complicated task. Instead, Warners execs focused first on issuing a statement expressing sorrow and sympathy for the victims, which was released shortly around 5 a.m. PDT. Warners also moved quickly to cancel the movie’s Paris premiere later that day, which was to have included director Christopher Nolan and his cast. (Almost simultaneously, it also decided to scrub premieres in Mexico City and Tokyo.) Another problem immediately arose: Warners had just sent theaters a trailer for Gangster Squad, scheduled for a Sept. 7 release, that included a scene of a shootout in Grauman’s Chinese. It quickly pulled back the trailer, and now is considering rewrites and reshoots that could eventually force that movie’s postponement.”
