Marc Despres - Children Education Fund

With the sudden loss of their Papa, the  living expenses for his wife and two children, Savannah (age 2 years) and Apollo (age 10 month) are mounting quickly. 

We want to help Marc's young family in this incredibly difficult time. 

This account is set up to help them with the immediate funeral expenses, the day-to-day expenses and the future expenses needed for their education. 

As an educator,  Marc understood the value of an education. He wanted his children to value learning and to have every opportunity to succeed. 

As a teenager,  he did not take school seriously and did not think about what that meant for his future.  Once he figured it out, he made up his mind and with complete determination he began to work hard to build the future he wanted.  He went back to school as an adult and carved a path to succeed and was determined to conquer what he called 'the struggle'. He did not want this experience for his children. He fought 'the struggle' so his children wouldn't have to. 

His children may be too young to remember him but we can remind them of the man Marc was and how important his children were to him.
Marc picked an incredibly compassionate and loving woman to be the mother of his children.
We have no doubt that with everyone’s help, Veronica can continue Marc’s passion of giving his children the life and education he wanted for them. 

Please help us help them.
