The Fund to Find Craig Arnold
This fund has been created to support the search efforts for Craig Arnold. The outpouring of concern for Craig has been remarkable, and your donation will be deeply appreciated. Thank you for your help and support.
Your donation will be used for the following purposes:
--To fund the inclusion of an independent non-profit expert international search and rescue team, 1 SRG (http://www.1srg.org/)
--To (potentially) fund the expense of continuing to engage local Japanese resources beyond Sunday, should that prove necessary.
--To fund Craig's safe return to the United States and, should there be any, medical expenses to bring him back into full health either in Japan or here or both.
In the event that there should be any funds remaining in this account after the search has been concluded and Craig has been recovered, any and all remaining funds will be used to establish an educational fund for Craig's son Robin.
Donations can be made via the Paypal link here.
Or by sending checks made out to “Find Craig Arnold” to the following address:
UNIWYO Federal Credit Union

Laramie, WY 82072
Full disclosure: the account “Find Craig Arnold” has been opened in the name of Beth Loffreda (the director of the MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Wyoming, where Craig teachers). This was done to create the fund quickly, with the full permission of Rebecca Lindenberg. Control of the account will be transferred as soon as possible to members of Craig’s family.
