Caring for Carson

Created August 12, 2019
Everyone that's ever met Carson knows this universal truth - he is a tremendously generous and loving person. Carson will greet a complete stranger with the same warmth that he will show to a lifelong friend. He has supported so many people in big and small ways during his life - it is because of that reason that we're starting a fundraiser for him.

As you may have heard, Carson was in an accident on Wednesday, August 7th. In true Carson form, we are not going to focus on what happened but instead will look forward to find ways to support our friend transition into this new life of his. Every dollar raised will go to Carson and the Clough family for them to use however they need.

*For those of you that do not know me - this fundraiser was created with the blessing of the Clough family. My  name is Erin Richards and my family (the Whites/Kelleys) has grown up next door to the Clough's in Sandbridge, Carson's second home.

Hi Everyone! On behalf of the Cloughs, a massive thank you for all this fundraiser has accomplished! I set $65,000 as a goal, but at this early stage in the game it's hard to know exactly what the Clough's will need down the road . At this time I won't raise the goal amount, but can't tell you how amazing it is to see support continue to pour in. At a minimum, we've taken a big chunk of the financial burden off of their plate so they can focus on doing all they need to support Carson. I'm so impressed with this community. Way to show up for your boy! <3

In other news: A group of Caron's close friends (organized by Mike Massardo) have created a Facebook group to post updates, events, and send messages of support to Carson and the family. Please request to join it if you'd like to be in the loop about all that's happening on his road to recovery:

Finally, continue to share this fundraiser. Every dollar raised is going back to the family and will be used to support Carson and the family on this new journey. Thank you again! - Erin Richards

Okay - wow. When this fundraiser was created we had no idea what to expect. But, this community is unbelievable. You all have truly rallied and lifted up this family in such a powerful way and raised $30,000 in less than 24 hours. They can't begin to thank you all enough. As is common knowledge: money can't fix everything, but it will surely ease some of their burden.

Regarding the goal: I wasn't sure what to set the "goal amount" to when I initially created this fundraiser, because it's hard to know exactly what Carson and his family is going to need in this stage of the game. I'm talking with the family tonight to determine what the final goal should be. Thank you all again for all you have done so far to show this incredible family so much love. They are so blessed to have you all in their life.

WOW. The fundraiser hit $10,000 this morning. Thank you all so much for your support for Carson and the Clough Family! Brenda Clough has been given sole access to the withdrawal function on GoFundMe, and she can start taking out the funds as soon as she needs. The overall amount raised won't be impacted by her withdrawals so we can see all the support in real time. Please continue to share this fundraiser - Carson's road to recovery is just beginning. Thank you, Erin Richards (friend of the family and neighbor at Sandbridge Beach)
