We have been requested by Dr. Aversa at SLIS (via Dr. Bonnici) to remove this donation link due to some legal/policy issues for SLIS. Please see below for Dr. Aversa's email concerning the UA SLIS fund. Contributers: check your email for a message from me, and be sure to let me know your preference for handling the funds we collected. Many thanks again to all who donated!
Please use the "Donate" button on this page to contribute funds directly to SLIS faculty, staff, and students who suffered losses and damage in the recent storm.
This money will be used to purchase supplies and/or provide financial support. Right now, funds are being collected in my personal Paypal account (we set it up this way to expedite collection), but as time/electricity/internet access allows, hopefully someone at UA can get a centralized SLIS account going by next week. All funds collected before that point will be transferred to the new account.
Update 4/29 10 p.m. CST: Dr. Bonnici and Dr. Naidoo advise that we wait to hear from Dr. Aversa next week before taking money/supplies, due to the state of the roads in and around Tuscaloosa. We'll continue to collect funds and, depending on Dr. Aversa's request, probably just transfer all monies directly to SLIS. Your donations will go straight to our SLIS folks who have a lot of rebuilding ahead of them.
All donations will be recorded on this spreadsheet. When you donate, I will email you with a donor ID so you can see your contribution listed.
