Stella's Fund

On February 8 at about 1:30 am Paul's fishing vessel, Queen Anne's Revenge, issued a distress call, that was the last time anyone heard from the boat and its crew.  After an extensive search by the US Coast Guard Paul is presumed lost at sea.

Paul was 30 years old, a new father, with his whole future ahead of him, and unfortunately he did not plan for the financial well being of his daughter.

This fund is to support Stella, Paul Matos' 5 month old daughter.  All funds raised will be used towards Stella daycare, medical expenses and college fund.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
