Many of you asked if you could donate to help Cory Maye get back on his feet. The Cory Maye Justice Fund, set up several years ago by Bob Evans, is still active. Huffington Post Impact has more details.
Please note that this is not a non-profit. Your donation will go directly to Maye, through Evans. But it is not tax-deductible. And because Cory’s lawyers all worked the case pro-bono, your donation will not be going to pay his legal bills. Instead, you’ll be helping the guy get his life together once he gets out. I know he’s strongly considering moving out of Southern Mississippi. That’s probably smart. And I’d imagine your donation could help with that. If you’re interested in helping in a non-monetary way, you can write Evans at the snail mail address at the link, or email him here.
I will personally vouch for the fund’s legitimacy, and that 100 percent of the money will get to Maye. (Unless you use PayPal, in which case they’ll take a cut.) Evans will also send you a receipt if you request one.
