Bhangu Family Fund

We are all saddened by the tragic and senseless shooting death of Karanpal Bhangu on December 18, 2015 in Edmonton.  Karanpal and his son, Royce, recently immigrated from India to join his wife Kiran and begin a new life in Canada.

Let’s all join together to support Kiran and Royce and let them know that they have an entire community behind them in this difficult time.  All funds raised will go directly to them.

Thank you,
The Bhangu's family at Progressive Academy


GoFundMe is requesting further information from me in this campaign for the family's protection.

My name is Kat Thornton and Kiran is my coworker at Progressive Academy, where her son is also a student.  The staff here wanted to set something up so that we could help, not only our colleague and friend, but one of our kids as well.

The GoFundMe page is being set up so that Kiran can directly withdraw the funds, which will be used to help with funeral expenses and everyday living expenses as she fights through this difficult time.

Here's a link to an article about the family:
