Braden Joplin's Medical and Funeral

$23,512 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 428 people in 43 months
We are fellow Ben Carson volunteers just like Braden that would like to raise money to help offset medical and funeral costs for Braden Joplin's  family.   Braden was involved in a car accident while campaigning for Dr. Ben Carson in Iowa.  Jamie Rodgers, Bradens cousin, shared a few words about Braden.  He will be missed by many, and we, the Carson Volunteers, will work even harder to bring Braden's wish come true.

Braden was special.  He had something special about him that made everyone like him instantly.  First, he never met a stranger.  He was warm and welcoming to anyone he met. He had a way of talking to people that made them feel comfortable right away.

Secondly, he was dedicated.  Although he was close to graduation from Texas Tech University, he decided to pause his schooling to support Dr. Ben Carson's campaign.  He was so excited to be in Iowa spreading the word.  He died doing something he truly loved and believed in.

Lastly and most importantly, he had a heart of gold.  He would be there for anyone that asked, whether he knew them or not.  He was self-sacrificing, kind, and had the most loving nature.  He loved his family and his family loves him.  He leaves behind a father and mother, a brother, and sister in law, grandparents, and many other family members and friends who will miss him greatly.   He may no longer be by our side, but will forever be in our hearts.       


Rest in Peace Braden

"Behold, I am going to send an angel before you to guard you along the way and to bring you into the place which I had prepared"  Exodus 23:20


*This page was set up for Kenny and Carolyn Joplin, Braden's parents.  They asked for Bailey, Braden's brother, to be the contact person and appointee for withdrawal of all funds that are donated.  100% of donations, minus any GFM fees will be given to Braden's family.  Jamie Rodgers, helped with pictures and Braden's bio for this page.  No group, campaign, or Super Pac is involved in this fundraiser.  It was set up by a fellow Carson supporter just like Braden.  Any questions regarding legitmacy, can be verified with Jamie, or Bailey.

Taylor H & I were talking about you last night & couldn't figure out why on earth GOD would take you from everyone so soon.... You've been gone for a day & you're already moving mountains though, the nation is joining in prayer for YOU. GOD is using your beautiful life to bring His children closer to Him. How blessed are you?! Not only are you in the presence of our Lord, but you're bringing people across the nation together so that one day they can join you in His presence. GOD BLESS YOU, BRADEN JOPLIN!

I did not know Braden personally but Jared Groner spoke so highly of him that I wanted to help a little bit. God bless and comfort each family and friend who loved Braden.
