Emergency fund for local crash victim

From the Bowery Alliance of Neighbors:
Dear Bowery Neighbors & Friends,
Below are details re an emergency fund set for the bodega worker
critically injured this week when a drunken driver racing down 2nd ave
at 80 miles an hour careened onto the side walk mowing down a tree,
Muni Meter, fire hydrant, and flower stand, injuring a biker and 3
bodega employees, most seriously 62-year-old Mohammed Akash Ali,
who worked 7-days-a-week outside at the flower stand.
The well-liked, always friendly Mr. Ali has a wife and 3 sons.
Any support you can help out with will be greatly appreciated by all.
Direct link to fund:  "Aid for Akkas Ali and Family":
Many thanks to CB3 member Chad Marlowe who moved with lightning speed to set up the fund.  Thanks also to neighbors Bill Koenleinand David McReynolds who got
the word out so quickly.
