Family tragedy brings WWE superstars and fans together to help
By Scott Fishman
Superstars, divas and fans have recently shown how powerful the WWE Universe and social media can be in times of tragedy.
Dana Ghazzawi and Caleb Dreyer, of AJ Lee fan website April-Jeanette.org, woke up to shocking news a few days ago. On Tuesday, June 18 (United Kingdom time) their friend and fellow staffer for the site Shirleigh Kaur (affectionately called Shirlz) lost her home in a fire. She and other family escaped, but her mother Caroline and sister Hayleigh did not make it out.
Shirlz and the rest of her family were taken to the hospital and treated. Dreyer says the team scrambled together for hours trying to get something put together to help her and her family.
"We we're also hurting, because we also knew Hayleigh, but we had to be strong for Shirlz," he said.
"So we got the fund started and it started off to a good start. Now, we're still promoting it and trying to earn as much money as possible. Our ultimate goal is...$9,000/$10,000 in US dollars. The idea was just pretty random. We felt useless, and we wanted to do something to help our friend, so we asked via Twitter if people would be willing to donate. They said yes, and it was a done deal."
