The Elijah Dunn Family Fund

$99,520 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 1,458 people in 35 months
Elijah Dunn ~  This sweet 3 year old boy lost his life on September 9th 2016 in a tragic accident caused by a  DUI driver. Details can be read in the link below. More importantly is who little Elijah was and the loving, devastated family he has left behind. Elijah was always full of joy and brought happiness to everyone he met. His smile was contagious. He was one of those special little guys whose personality drew people to him wherever he went. His mother, 11 year old brother and 1 year old sister where in the vehicle with him when the tragedy occurred. His mother is still hospitalized in critical condition trying to recover while dealing with the loss of her precious boy. Elijah's 13 year old sister and his father were not in the vehicle. The entire family is completely overcome with grief as they struggle to make sense of this inconceivable loss. 

We are raising funds for this beautiful family to assist them with living expenses, loss of income and relief from the financial burdens that come in a situation such as this. They have a long recovery ahead of them and anything you are able to contribute to this family would be so deeply appreciated. All funds will be directly accessibly by Eric Dunn and Crystal Manoiki, parents of Elijah Dunn.

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I can not begin to imagine what you are goin through. I pray for you and your family to have the stength you need in this awful time. I know sorry doesn't begin to make a person feel better in a time like this. But I lack the words because there aren't any to console a grieving family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
