Copeland Family RV Fund

The Copeland Family Vehicle-RV Fund
Want to join in making a difference? We're raising money to benefit The Kyle & Whitney Copeland Family via a non-profit organization, "Big Ocean Women", to obtain a new RV for the family after their horrific accident on Monday, December 27th.

The motorhome the Copeland Family were living and traveling in was their ONLY transportation, and it exploded on Monday night with family members inside.   Not only did this catastrophic accident cost them all earthly possessions, their home, vehicle, clothing, etc., but it caused very severe injuries and burns for father, Kyle, daughter, Pepper, 11, and son Krew, age 3.  These three have been Life-Flighted to the UMC Burn Center in Las Vegas where they are in critical condition, and are expected to have a a very long journey ahead of painful surgeries, treatments and rehabilitation.  

Mother, Whitney, son, Kade, 10, and daughter, Emree, 6 had minor injuries and were released from the hospital.  Whitney is at the hospital holding vigil with her family during their ongoing surgeries.   
Big Ocean Women, a non-profit foundation stepped in to coordinate finding the family a new SUV which will seat 7-8 passengers.  One was donated on January 10th, and so now we are moving all further donations to helping secure an RV for the family, so that after their treatments are completed at the UMC Burn Center in Las Vegas (expected to be 9-12 months), they can continue their dream to live in an RV and travel the country teaching their children about our great country and having many educational experiences and adventures together.  Any monetary donation will help make an impact.  Additionally, if you have contacts with any RV dealers or any others who may want to assist in helping to raise funds for this purpose, please forward this information to them.  For more information, our contact info is below.
1)  PRAYER! This is very important...please PRAY for healing and intercession - that all three will recover from their burns and injuries and also regain their eyesight. Please pray especially for miracles for Pepper who has severe burns over 50% of her body.
