Parents of 3 year old boy saved in Gorilla attack refuse donations

In the wake of the death of the gorilla, Harambe we have heard and read all types of negative comments about the mother and father of the child saved at the Cincinnati Zoo. One media outlet went as far as publishing the father's criminal past. (I just wonder why we never hear about the criminal past of a child that falls down a well). Some have even called for charges against the family. Lost in all this negativity was the statement the family made about those who wished to give them donations and where they thought that those donations should go. Read their statement below:

“We continue to praise God for His grace and mercy, and to be thankful to the Cincinnati Zoo for their actions taken to protect our child,” the family said. “We are also very appreciative for the expressions of concern and support that have been sent to us. Some have offered money to the family, which we do not want and will not accept. If anyone wishes to make a gift, we recommend a donation to the Cincinnati Zoo in Harambe’s name.” [SOURCE]
