The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation announced it had raised in just ten days enough money to pay off the mortgages of the two police officers, reports WABC.
An emotional and tearful Pei Xia Chen, widow of Wenjian Liu, extended her gratitude.
“To all my extended blue family, be safe out there and appreciate life each day.”
Cindy, the sister of Rafael Ramos was also on hand for the announcement.
“Just to know that my sister-in-law and the boys could sleep just a little bit better amidst this tragedy fills a little bit of that gap.”
You can hear from a 7-year old and a 9-year old who were among the 10,000 people who donated more than one million dollars in the clip below from WABC.
