Circle of Support for David and Masha

Donation protected
We are raising funds to support David and Masha through the unexpected and tragic loss of their beautiful daughter Helena.

Your donations, however large or small, will be used to pay for a woodland burial and memorial and provide a raft to carry them through the coming months.

As Masha and David are self-employed and on low income, your donation will give them the time they need to grieve instead of worrying about having to go back to work.

We are bringing together their community of friends and family. The love and care you bring already means so much. If there is another way you would like to contribute please get in touch as we have created a circle of practical support for the family.

All donations will be received with so much love and gratitude from David and Masha far beyond any words.

Thank you with love

In loving memory of Helena Rose Kästner-Moss

If this situation is touching you personally we encourage you to reach out for support, talk to somebody, know you're not alone.

Update from David and Masha Feb 9th 2024

Dearest friends - All of you who have contributed to the crowdfunder,

We are grateful beyond words. Your contributions mean so much to us and your generosity has brought us to tears.
We would like to tell you that the target has been exceeded and that we would like to put a good amount towards building a ‘Kind Schools Project’, in the name of our beautiful daughter Helena - to help create a culture where kindness is the real foundation of school life.

We would also love to invite all of you to take part in Helena’s Ceremony and Celebration of her Life on Thursday, 15th February from 10am to 5.30pm at Goss Croft Hall near Chippenham. For those of you who live far away, we know that you will have our family in your heart and be there with us in deep connection. 

Thank you!

All our love goes to you, dearest friends,
Masha and David
