Note from Valerie:
This is not something the Wingate’s asked for. Myself and a group of my friends took it upon ourselves to make this for the family. We were overwhelmed by the amount of donations as were others. We thought it would be great to up the allowed donation amount because so many people that wanted to donate weren’t able to yet! Isn’t that amazing? As you know, donations are optional. Personally, I don’t see a specific number on this fundraiser and as of now I plan to leave it up! In our heart of hearts, we feel no amount of money could make this easier, but we’d like to take any amount of burden off the family that we’re able to. Thank you!
