I am starting a fundraiser for Toledo Police Officer Anthony Dia, son of Tony Dia as of today. He was shot and killed early this morning while on duty and left behind a wife and 2 kids. Anyone on my friends list that would like to donate to this family during these trying times feel free to reach out to me. I will be personally delivering funds every week for the next month to his father or wife whomever I am able to reach about this first. I can’t sit idle after hearing this. This broke my heart this morning hearing about this happening in my sleep. I will also be accepting donations for the fundraiser through Facebook Pay for those that have it. I’ll go to the atm to pull out donations daily if I have to. #toledopolice
