Fund for Tristen Taylor

$27,009 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 311 people in 23 months
Our friend Jody Taylor was suddenly and tragically taken from us yesterday in a workplace accident.

We're all grieving in our own way, but for many, one of the first thoughts we had was for his 10 year old daughter Tristen. One only had to scroll for a minute or two through Jody's Facebook or his photo blog to see just how much he loved his daughter, and how strong of a bond they had.

Our plan is to raise as much money as we can and then stick it in an RESP or other secure, interest-gathering fund for Tristen to access when she's of age.

Jody touched many people, through music, through his work in the Parks Board, and just through being an all-around good guy. The more Tristen benefits from that love, the better. It won't replace what's been taken from her, but maybe it will make things easier in the years to come.

I cannot unfortunately donate any money but I've spread it to my contacts. Honey I am so sorry for your loss. I know that money will replace your father, but know that you are in the thoughts of the many who hear his story. Hopefully something good can come from this tragedy if only it's another life being saved in the future by better working conditions. Te Amo to the family and friends. ♥
