On July 20th, 2021, Ashley lost her husband, David Bivins, unexpectedly. He was the main financial contributor to the household. Recently, Ashley took custody of her two younger sisters. David took the two sisters as his own as he was a friend and father to Ashley's sisters.
The funds gathered will help Ashley with her living expense for a year. The money will help her pay rent, groceries and help financially support her sisters as they still attend high school.
Quote from Ashley, "I can say so much about my husband that I'm lost for words and still can't believe he is gone."
