Brittany and family

$14,861 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 336 people in 49 months
My heart aches for this family. Unfortunately, Brittany and her children were involved in a terrible car accident on  September 3rd, 2014.  Sadly, she and her husband lost two of their children that day. She survived along with her youngest son, Justin. In order to heal Justin was in the hospital for nearly a week. As we can all imagine, the cost of medical bills increased quickly during that time.
This family has been through so much and I want to do as much as possible to help alleviate the stress associated with this accident and the bills that will arise because of it. Please help us in raising funds to cover the costs associated with this tragedy. Anything will be appreciated!!! Thank you and God bless!

Good afternoon everyone! Once more, thanks again for the awesome support you have all shown during the last month towards this amazing family! I was able to deliver the first donation which after taxes was nearly $14,000!!!! Without the help of the community, strangers, close family and friends we couldn't have done it!

Even though I am extremely humbled by the generosity of the community and thankful for all the help and support, I would really like to keep this fund going! I have explained to the family that as long as the funds continue to grow, I will continue to write them checks.

Please continue to share this and donate whatever possible!! I understand times are tough in unique ways for everyone, but we should be thankful for what we have and give to those less fortunate :)

Compassion at it's finest :) once again, thank you all and god bless!

We are so close!! And it's all thanks to those who have been so kind to donate any amount possible. Also those who have shared this link so that it could reach hundreds of friends and family. We are coming up on 2 weeks acne that terrible day and the bills might come any day now. I want to be able to issue this check to them ASAP so that they don't have to pay anything out of pocket initially. Thanks again to everyone!

Oh my goodness. My heart is overwhelmed with joy! We are close to breaking $12,000 thanks to everyone who has worked together to raise money for this family! Please continue to spread the word and share this link! Even if you can't afford to donate, if you share this it will eventually reach someone who can! Thanks again and god bless everyone who has been so kind to donate!

You don't know me but when I heard of the accident on the news my heart broke for you. The next day as the story unfolded I just wanted to give you a hug and a shoulder to cry on for you see I have suffered the same loss. Your family is in our thoughts. I wish there was something someone could say or do to ease your pain but with time the pain will be less, the memories will be great, and the love will remain. If you ever need someone to talk to you can contact me on FB.

I don't know the family either, but it is such a blessing to see everyone pull together to help this family. I would love to see that goal exceeded! There is no such thing as too much. In their time of grief the last thing they should have to worry about is money. God bless you all and prayers and love to this family.

I do not know the family but my heart goes out to them. What an awful thing to have to endure. My five children lost their father to an automobile accident in 2001. I will be praying for you to find peace and comfort. God Bless your little angels.
