Million-Dollar Leiby Kletzky Memorial Fund

The family of Leiby Kletzky, the eight-year-old Brooklyn boy who was kidnapped and murdered last week, dedicated a new internet site in his memory on Thursday. The site will be used to raise funds for needy children and their families. The family hopes to raise a million dollars in contributions, explaining that the money will help achieve good deeds that Leiby would have accomplished if his life had been allowed to continue.

As of Thursday morning, more than $58,000 had been raised. To go to the site, click here.
