Source: “Warner Bros., the studio behind The Dark Knight Rises, is making a donation to charities supporting victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting rampage. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the studio has been in contact with Colorodo governor John Hickenlooper’s office and will contribute to a fund identified by the governor on the website givingfirst.org, which is a program of Colorado’s Community First Foundation. The fund distributes monies across several charities that will support victims of the July 20 killing spree that left at least 12 dead and dozens injured.”
It is nice to see that Warner Bros is taking a positive approach to the horrific shooting as opposed to setting it aside and ignoring that had happened. They canceled a planned Paris premiere, canceled press events, and declined to release box office figures in respect for the families. It is unknown how much money will be donated but it is supposedly a good amount of money. hopefully the donated money will be used to help fund funeral ceremonies, help the injured pay hospital expense, and overall help those families in any way possible. Anyone can donate money on the website to help support those that were victims of the event. Lets keep our heads up and keep hope for those families and hope that the man who shot the theater is put away for life or eventually sentenced the death penalty.
