How can the AJC say one Go fund Me over another is the primary one? Both GFMs were started 3 days ago.

Strange wording but I assume they just meant the 'primary' was the one set up locally by family/friends.


They did revise the part about us. Now it reads:
One campaign has ballooned to more than $30,000 with the support of LSU fans.

I emailed the reporter and told her the wording was offensive to LSU fans.

Don't you be spanking me.

I don't like people assuming it's a sketchy scam.

Hey Mick...have you talked to the family/friends lately? I love seeing stories like this and would love to see their response.

I talked to about 5 reporters from BR and Atlanta area today. They’re all picking up the story now, hopefully we get one more big boost of donations. I did speak to the close family friend and she gave me the name of the local bank that’s accepting donations for the family. I’m going to speak to the bank early next week and ultimately I think the best route would be to transfer funds from gofundme directly to that bank. The family has an attorney who I plan to touch base with as well.

pa - I’ve gotten tons of emails from people who know the family and GSU fans in general and they’re so thankful and they’re all LSU fans now

No offense to Chicken, but this speaks better of the board than the koozie giveaway.

I did a search for Danny and Julie Hagan a little while ago.

The Miami Herald recently picked up the story. Kinda wish ESPN would pick it up but I don't know anyone from there. I sent it to WWL and Jacques Doucet, but he's in Austin for the game. Hopefully people have seen or will see or will search for the link to the GFMs.

I wish LSU's coaching staff would see this but they're a little busy right now. If they would/could just share the story with people donations would get bigger.

Thanks again for doing this for this family.

I didn't watch Game Day. Was it mentioned?

ESPN likes to do stories with the feels. Would be a huge boost for the fundraiser to get some national airplay.

I have been thinking about those kids ever since I heard this story.
