This campaign is a grass-roots effort by Anne Marie's Ryerson family to help us remember our dear friend and to help us comfort the D'Amicos.
Anne Marie D'Amico was one of ten victims of the April 23 tragedy in Toronto.
Many friends and loved ones that have been sharing their favourite memories with Anne Marie on social media and have expressed interest in donating money which led to the creation of this page.
100% of the funds will be given to Anne Marie's family to assist with the funeral and other final costs.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
It means the world to us!
A NOTE FROM ANNE MARIE'S FAMILY:
Anne Marie left an undeniable mark on this world. She truly was an amazing person and a joy to be around. But it is her altruism and selflessness that were her best qualities. She genuinely cared for the well-being of all those around her and she dedicated her time and energy to help those who needed it most. She would want us, as a society, to continue her passion of spreading good to others. Let her legacy live on by helping others and make the world a better place.

A NOTE FROM RYERSON TRSM'S DEAN:
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff;
I am deeply saddened to share that one of our former students and TRSM alumna, Anne Marie D'Amico, was a victim of yesterday's senseless violence and tragedy at Finch and Yonge.
Anne Marie was a 2010 graduate of Business Management with a Finance Major. In her time at TRSM, she was involved in Jeux de Commerce Central and distinguished herself as a student leader. She built many lasting friendships during her time at TRSM, and we know there are many of our faculty, staff and students and alumni who will share a great sadness today.
Our heartfelt sympathies and condolences go out to her family, friends and colleagues. Our strength is as a community and in difficult situations like this we can draw comfort and solace through our shared grief. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
We are here to help.
