Zachary Hill Memorial Fund

I have already donated some to the cause. Please share this and donate if you are in a position to be able to do so.

He was a regular in the Utah writing scene. I know lots of you know him from his website as the Minimum Wage Historian.

A donation page has been set up for his young wife, Mackenzie here:
