The Kaur Fund
INFO & SPONSORS
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."

So, we are giving away 3 8x10s of AJ to three random donors. We have already picked the three donors and they will be receiving e-mails from us soon. If one or more of them does not want the 8Ã—10"¦ we will pick someone else and they will be sent an e-mail. The 8x10s are at NO COST TO YOU. They're being paid by us with our own money. The 8Ã—10 is NOT autographed"¦ but it's free! Who could pass that up?
Dana has also offered to give away an autographed (by AJ, Dolph, and Big E) WrestleMania shirt, to a random donor, that she got when she attended WrestleMania Axxess earlier this year. The shirt is, again, at no cost to you"¦ however, there is a catch! Seeing as we want to raise as much money as possible for Shirlz and her family, we will only be giving away the shirt if we reach Â£5,000 by Monday night! That's not too much to ask, right? So if you can, please donate! If you can't donate, please"¦ spread the link around and help us reach our new goal and help a family rebuild their lives from the ground up!
Today, 06/21/2013, we reached our first goal of £3,000! We would like to thank you all so much for donating. We NEVER imagined this fund doing so well, for that... we appreciate you so much!
Now, we set our eyes on £6,000! Every penny is needed for the Kaur Family. This money will help them rebuild their lives. You all are amazing!!!
So, keep donating (if you can), spreading the word, and help keep this a success! We couldn't ask anything more of you! Thank you!
- Dana, Caleb, and Taylor
I would also like to help out.
Just wanted to know whether you have received my donation yet as it hasn't shown up on the side and I want to help. Thanks
I have a question. Does this fund accept US dollars? i'm new at doing online funds and I want to help this cause as much as I can. Thanks.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-22951779 From BBC News Please donate. The family has lost everything. But most importantly, they lost a mother and sister/daughter. When I read that comment about not posting proof I was appalled. How can someone be so callous about a family that is experiencing such tragedy.

@Andrew Toronyi : If you're not here to help, after this was legit covered by BBC - I suggest you kindly take it elsewhere. BTW: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-22951779 your proof.
