Justice For Our Valentina Orellana Peralta

On the morning of Thursday, December 23, 14-year-old Valentina Orellana Peralta sadly died when an LAPD's officer's stray bullet struck her when in a clothing store dressing room shopping with her mother. Valentina and her mother went to Los Angeles from Santiago, Chile to be reunited with Valentina's older sister, and with the goal of a better life in California just months before her death. Aside from it being a tragedy to anyone who reads Valentina's story, our hearts ache at the senselessness of her death.
The Chilean family is faced with travel costs and burdens and other kinds of incidentals. There is no amount of money that can bring our Valentina back, or to comfort her grieving mother, father and older sister, but we want her immediate family to be relieved from any financial restraints that might make this mourning process even harder. We want her family to be as comfortable as possible and capable of remembering Valentina without limitations.

We (Valentina's cousins) are creating this Go Fund Me on behalf of Valentina's immediate family with the intention to rid them of any financial burden that may be associated with being unable to work, travel expenses, accommodations for extended family traveling from Chile to Los Angeles and other expenses.
Please donate and share Valentina's if you can. #JusticeForValentina #justiciaporvalentina #ValentinaOrellanaPeralta

La mañana del jueves 23 de diciembre, Valentina Orellana Peralta de 14 años, murió cuando la bala perdida de un oficial de LAPD golpeó y mato a Valentina, quien estaba en el probador de una tienda de ropa mientras compraba con si madre. Valentina y su madre fueron a los Angeles desde Santiago de Chile para poder reunirse con la hermana mayor de Valentina y con la meta de una mejor calidad de vida en California meses antes de su muerte. Aparte de ser una tragedia para cualquiera que lea la historia de Valentina, nuestros corazones duelen por la insensatez de su muerte.
La familia chilena se está enfrentando con los costos de viaje y cargas de viaje y otros tipos de imprevistos. No hay cantidad de dinero que pueda traer de regreso a nuestra Valentina, o para consolar a su madre, su padre, su hermana mayor y una familia entera en duelo, pero queremos que su familia inmediata se libere de cualquier restricción financiera que pueda hacer que este proceso de duelo sea qun mas difícil. Queremos que su familia se sienta lo más cómoda posible y capaz de recordar a Valentina sin limitaciones.
Nosotras (primas de Valentina) estamos creando esta pagina GO FUND ME con la intención de librar a su familia inmediata de cualquier carga financiera que pueda estar asociada con la imposibilidad de trabajar, gastos de viaje, alojamiento para la familia directa que viaja de Chile a los Angeles, California, servicios y otros gastos.
