Warner Bros. makes donation to Colorado shooting victims

By Tribute on July 24, 2012 | 2 Comments

Warner Bros. – the studio behind The Dark Knight Rises – has reportedly donated a substantial amount to the victims of the recent Colorado massacre. The July 20th shooting left 12 dead and over 50 injured – some still in critical condition. Among the dead were a six-year-old girl, a 27-year-old man celebrating his birthday, and an aspiring sports journalist. The tragedy left a significant impact on the film’s stars, the film industry, and the general population. According to various reports, the studio has been in contact with Colorado governor John Hickenlooper and his office. The studio has apparently donated a significant amount to the victims via the website givingfirst.org – a support for non-profits site set up by the Community First Foundation of Colorado. Some of the victims’ medical bills from the shooting are said to be extremely high – such as Petra Anderson, who was shot in the head and is now in debt for approximately $250,000 in medical bills. ~Stacy Raivich

    Good for WB. Now support the great flick by going to see it so they can recover production and advertising costs and also pay the ‘significant’ amount they donate.
    The people that survived and the families of the deceased and the survivors can all use the $ for the hospitals bills and grieving time.
