Joseph & Michael Lieberman Funeral Fund

(Michael 2yrs, Joseph 6yrs, Nok 19yrs)

Last week 3 lives were tragically cut short when Joseph Lieberman, Michael Lieberman and their cousin Nok were murdered near Pattaya, Thailand on National Children's Day, January 11th, 2014. Joseph and Michael leave behind their father Jason, an American businessman and Gulf war veteran, and their mother Uraiwan (Creme) who is from the Isan region of Thailand. The murder suspect has been captured and is now awaiting trial.

Can you please help with the funeral expenses for their children? Funerals in Thailand go on for multiple days and have significant costs associated with them (organizing a Buddhist temple and monks for 3 days, the cremation costs and more). Any donations to help ease the financial burden of the parents during this time of unspeakable grief from such a senseless act of violence would be a tremendous help.

Both Jason and Creme used to take Joseph and Michael to the local orphanage on their birthdays so the boys could give something to the orphans who were less fortunate than they were. Both Jason and Creme have had all of Michael and Joseph's belongings blessed/cleansed by Buddhist monks and donated to the same orphanage. Their wish is that any funds raised in excess of the funeral costs be donated to that orphanage.

No donation is too small (even a few dollars) and if you are unable to donate just sharing this with others would be of great assistance to Jason and Creme so they can move forward and look towards rebuilding a family.
