Keep the magic in Christmas for Erin’s kids

Donation protected
Hi all... This fall,we lost one of our own.

A bright, strong, loving, funny, insanely talented, kind, wonderful woman.

Erin Wall was all of those things, but she was also, and most importantly, an incredibly devoted mother to Michael and Julia.

I want to tell you a story.. when I was just twelve (and my brother was nine), we lost our mother suddenly. It was nearly the same time of year in which we lost Erin. It was more than a shock and Christmas was coming quickly. We didn’t have much to celebrate, and it was going to be a horribly difficult one without my mom.. but when we came down on Christmas morning, the house was filled with handmade gifts, things that we could have only wished for, food, etc...

The whole community came out to make this time magical for us.

To give us some joy and hope at Christmas.

No, of course it didn’t replace our mother, but it showed us that people cared. That we weren’t alone. It kept the magic in Christmas for us for just a little while longer. Gave us some joy that we weren’t expecting.

The day Erin passed, I made a promise to her that I would do this very thing for her children. Pay it forward, if you will. With the great help of Erin’s mother Suzanne, we have created two wish lists for the children. We also are wanting to purchase new computers/iPads for them, both as a necessity for school and for play.  If we raise enough money, I am also trying to find a way to send them on a family get away.    

I am asking you all to help me do this for them. For Erin.

Any small gift would mean the world to them.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Let’s help make this holiday joyful for Michael and Julia.
