The following message appeared on The Official Xena Fan Club page from
"I've been wanting to thank all those nice people who care about
Kevin and gave money at the convention. I wanted to say that I'm sorry that a place
for their money to go wasn't arranged sooner. It was simply that the people who were
arranging it were so close to Kevin and needed time to support his wife and family.
I want the fans to know they weren't being ignored. I don't want them to feel
disrespected. Tell them I'm sorry I haven't sent word. Every day I say I've
got to write a letter and I'm just out of words. I know that his wife and children
will take a great deal of heart of how much Kevin meant to people out there that they
don't even know. It's going to help them through this tough time. Please thank
everyone so much for me."

There has been a lot of confusion about the Official Kevin Smith Trust Fund with regard
to which one it is, and who will benefit from the donations. I received an email from
Robert Bruce on Friday in response to some questions I had sent him early last week
regarding the status of the official fund. I hope this will cleear up any confusion that
The Fund being administered by the Auckland Theatre Company is the official fund. The
trustees for the fund are Lucy Lawless, Michael Hurst, Robert Bruce, and Simon Prast (of
the ATC). The proceeds currently being collected will go to benefit Kevin's wife Sue
and their three sons. In the long term, the Fund will continue to exist to help the family
of actors who may be similarly stricken. But rest assured the donations being made now
will go to Sue and the boys.
All donations should be made payable directly to the Kevin Smith Trust Fund. I will continue to collect donations through S&S payable directly to the fund.
I have asked for information on credit card payments. I will pass that information along
as soon as it becomes available. Also, please be advised that US Postal Money Orders are
not negotiable in New Zealand. So if you plan to send a donation, do not use Postal Money
Orders to do so.
All donations made through S&S to this date will be forwarded to NZ as a group
donation from S&S, and will include the name, address, and dollar amount of donation
made by each person donating through S&S. But now that the fund is set up, if you wish
to donate through S&S, please be sure to send any such donations payable directly to
the Kevin Smith Trust Fund. As always, I'll forward your checks directly to the
