Phoenix, AZ, December 2, 2010 -- Eric Ross, a Phoenix, AZ Cab Driver and Executive Producer of www.livetaxis.com is stepping in to help ensure that Brian Mann's son won't miss Christmas.
“I am personally donating the first $50.00 to start this drive,” says Ross.
Brian Mann, a Phoenix area Taxicab driver was murdered November 19, 2010 at the beginning of his shift in Phoenix, AZ.
The job of being an independent contractor taxi driver is not easy and does come with some dangers.
Ross, a former state trooper says, “At times you may pick up someone that gives you the creeps”, but most of the time people are only going from point A to point B.
After reading an article about Brian Manns family members having to host a car wash to raise funds to help with his burial expenses, I felt it was the right thing to do, start a toy drive for the child.
Brian Manns child deserves to have a nice Christmas.
“What breaks my heart”, says Ross, “I do the same thing (drive taxi), and I also have a son, and I can't imagine what this kid is going through, but he deserves a nice Christmas.”
www.livetaxis.com has a Brian Mann Memorial page set up where you can make an online donation.
Any excess donations will be contributed to the Phoenix Childrens Hospital in Phoenix.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
