Anyone who met Liam felt his powerful spirit.He was always smiling and happy and loved his brothers more than anything. Sadley the Ireland family can now only cherish the short time they had with Liam and be thankful they got to share 4 years with him. Most can not imagine putting their child to rest let alone trying to pay bills and feed their family while they are trying to come to term with their loss.Being a single income family is hard enough but Nick, Liam's father, had just started a new job so there are no benefits and no vacation pay to take advantage of. The goal is simple we would like to help the Ireland family cover their bills for the next couple months so they can worry about the family not the bills. If we raise more money then we will donate anything above our goal to the Children's hospital asthma unit in Liams name. We are grateful for anything you can spare, nothing is too little. You can also take pride in the fact you are helping someone in your community, someone who can't get by without your help and most importantly none of your money will be used for administration. If you're reading this you are helping Liam's family get through what is going to be the hardest year of their life. Thank you again for your support.
For all of you noticing the increase in the amount we are trying to raise I would like to leave a note to why. We are certainly not trying to take advantage of a situation but after sitting down and speaking with the Irelands there are still some concerns regarding money. When this page was first launched we thought our goal was pretty unattainable. We knew they needed more but thought it was better to start low and strive high. Every dollar continues to go to the family and trying to get them to a point where they are able to continue to raise their wonderful family. Thank you all again for all your ongoing support.
