Love for the Emerson Family

On February 22, the world lost a wonderful mother, wife, and friend. Blaire Irwin Emerson was just 27 years old and 35 weeks pregnant with her second child when she suffered a sudden heart attack that took her life and the life of her unborn son.

We will always remember Blaire's intelligence, strength, and kindness. She and her husband, Will, shared a passion for social justice and a fierce desire to make the world a better place, something Will continues to share with their beloved three-year-old daughter, Rowan.

All donations will go to help the Emerson Family as they move forward at this difficult time and to help fund Rowan's future education.
