Samantha and Raven’s College Fund

We lost Samantha Witt March 4, 2018. She spent 28 very short years on this earth and it wasn’t nearly enough. The light that she shared with the world reflected on many and left a deep impression amongst all of us.

She had the joy of bringing a new life into the world, Raven Olivia Marks, on December 6, 2016. She was a very loving and devoted mother that wanted a life for her daughter that was better than her own. Even on Samantha’s birthday, she didn’t ask for anything for herself; all she wanted us to give her were things for Raven. She loved that child more than herself and it’s our mission to give Raven the best life possible.

This fundraiser is for the daughter she left behind. Raven is now 15 months old and has a long life ahead of her. We want to make sure Raven has a life that Samantha wanted for her. This money is to start a college fund so Raven has the opportunity to continue her education after high school. A college fund is something Samantha didn’t have as a child, so we’d like to get this started for Raven early so it can accrue enough interest over the years to give her a good start in her later life.

Every penny counts, even if you donate $1 it’s a step forward for Raven.
