“We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.”
— Isabel Allende

The Greater Central Florida community started the month of November in the most somber and solemn of places when the life of Gail Cleavenger was taken in the most brutal of ways. The details of the situation can be easily accessed via a simple Google search- which should be done- because this is not a source for disheartening facts but rather a means of outreach to support a heart-broken family.

The organizers of this campaign have been blessed to be part of Gail's extended family for many years- and there is one thing everyone can agree the Goretsky/Cleavenger families are known for: wholehearted, unbounded, and genuine faith, hope, and joy. That is why we, as a community, must step up and support our neighbors in their most trying time.

Gail leaves behind a large family and well as countless friends- who in this moment, need our help.

The campaign is simple: donate whatever you can to their families so that the funerals, debts, and bereavement can be addressed with the slightest of financial burden. Danny will be receiving the funds directly to take care of the unforeseen needs that arose from this situation. 

We owe this beautiful family every ounce of love and support at times like these. Please continue to send good vibes and prayers to her family- they are powerful- they are heard. Let us all help join together in reminding them that the smallest light and illuminate the darkest of places.

Let's be that light, friends.

Additional details will be posted as they come available.

Again, this will not be a source to give evil more air-time, so please refer to your local news outlet for information regarding the investigative and legal aftermath.

First, thank you, thank you, again and again thank you.

The support shown through this campaign is truly unbelievable and know that your aid, love, prayers, and generosity does not go unnoticed.

The overwhelming financial support has been so outstanding that a majority of the necessary costs have been met ten-fold already.

Gail's family intends to redirect any excess funds towards the Crisis Pregnancy Center and Emergency Housing Center Gail was a part of during her time here, as well as beginning a trust in her honor which will provide scholarships to young architects.

Please continue to spread the word and reach out to friends who might be able to keep Gail's legacy alive with these charitable causes and know that your prayers, thoughts, and gifts were greatly needed and surely felt.
