PABJ: seeking prayers/support of fellow black journalist

Dear PABJ Family:

Rarely if at ever have I asked you to reach into your own pocket. This is one of those times.

You all know Philly freelance photographer Bill Foster. He's one of the big guys with a camera usually following or near the mayor and present at just about every city news event. 

Bill is going through an amazingly tragic time. Christopher Foster, 18, his only child, was murdered last Wednesday evening. Please keep Bill and his family in prayer. In lieu of flowers, the family is accepting donations to help with the funeral costs. PABJ will send a donation.

Please join me and consider making a personal donation. It goes without saying that every amount makes a difference and is welcome. Students- it may only be $5, professionals- it may be $25 and up. Whatever you can give, it will not only make a difference, but show PABJ's support for Bill and his family.

Donations may be sent to:

Christopher W. Foster Memorial Fund
Citizens Bank
Acct: 6230776093
2001 Market Street
Philadelphia, Pa. 19103
*You may make a donation at any Citizens Bank branch, but provided the above address for your convenience.

The crime is under investigation and presently unsolved. A story on the tragedy:http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20110126_Roxborough_student_slain...

The Funeral Service for Christopher Foster will be held on Thursday Feb 03, 2010. Viewing 9-11. Service starts at 11am at MT Zion Baptist Church, 41 West Rittenhouse St, Philadelphia, Pa 19144. 215-844-2756

Thank you in advance for your open heart and donation. It's times like these when you know we're family, because we do  what we can to help our fellow black journalists. 


Sarah Glover
PABJ President
