The $15,000 goal of this fundraiser aims to cover immediate costs incurred from the tragedy, including funeral costs. Any additional contributions would be greatly appreciated as financial assistance for the raising of their sons. This fundraiser is in response to those who have asked for a way to contribute money, but the family is just as thankful for all the thoughful ways people are already helping out. They have found it so comforting to share in your memories of Jenn, and to have so many loving people just a phone call away.
UPDATE: Thank you, all donors, for making this campaign a success. Any GoFundMe fees will be covered by the organizer to make sure 100% of your donations go to the family. Mounting debt is not something a grieving family should have to deal with, and your contributions have truly helped soften the impact.
A celebration of Jennifer's life will be held at Calvary Church (65 Lansdowne, Woodstock, ON) on Sunday July 23rd, 2017 at 3:00 pm with reception to follow. In honour of Jennifer’s love of children, all ages are welcome.
There were many anonymous donors and contributions from strangers. Since we won't be able to thank you in person, I'll leave you a special thank you now. I wish I knew a bit of your story and why you decide to help, but I also love knowing this world is sprinkled with more caring people than I'll ever be able to meet. You are amazing individuals.
There is much more we can do, and some of you have already messaged me with great ideas. I appreciate your patience in organizing some of these things, as we don't want to bombard the family with questions, emotions, and more food than they can eat. We'll just let things calm down and then shower them with more love.
Soooo much love and thanks from Dan and the boys.
