Caroling for Kristen

$1,227 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 44 months

Every year, 5 long time friends have come together from across the country to help raise money by caroling at Christmas time. What started as something we tried out just for fun quickly became a holiday tradition we looked forward to every Christmas. Over the years we have been able to raise thousands of dollars for multiple different charities. Most recently, we caroled in honor of our amazing friend Kristen Graham, who passed away from Leukemia, September 11th, 2010. Kristen was an incredibly strong, beautiful young woman and her family shares this same strength. 


This year the five of us as we have gone our separate ways, we will not all be in the same place at Christmas time. That doesn't mean that we (or you) can't help! 

We're asking YOU to help us keep our Christmas tradition alive and donate what you can to an amazing cause in honor of an outstanding young woman. All funds raised will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma society in Kristen's name.

And now for a little virtual Christmas caroling...




Below you can read a letter from Kristen's parents, Jill and Devin and her younger brother, Steven:

Thank you for your support,

Ali Tapper, Azure Risor, Max Duell, Rumil Bautista, and Michael Felix

"Kristen had a great love for music and for helping others. She would be as thrilled as Devin, Steven and I are that this special group of Christmas Carolers found a way to use their gift of song to continue to raise money for LLS in her memory.

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society does so much for children and adults battling these devastating illnesses. Not every family is blessed with insurance or means to cover the overwhelming costs of treatment. Let me tell you the costs are high;
hospitals, doctors, medicines, travel for treatment, housing during treatment, not to mention time lost away from work.

Kristen loved Christmas. She loved anticipating her gifts, but I think mostly she got the secret joy in the giving to others. I think Christmas is all about the Gift of Hope. Please share the Gift of Hope with other families in Kristen's memory. I can just see
her beautiful smile and the sparkle in her eyes that she would've had and the JOY she would've felt in knowing you remembered her this way.

Thank you to Kristen's Christmas Carolers!

Merry Christmas!

Jill, Devin and Steven Graham
