Both Carter(Junior) and Sydney(Freshman) are students at the University of Iowa and had only been in school a week when this tragedy occured. I decided to start a go-fund-me to raise money that will help the them in their pursuits of education, traveling home, living expenses, etc. Calvin will also attend college in two years and I would love to know he is supported, similarly.
I have never been through such an unconceivably painful situation as my cousins are currently experiencing, but I can imagine that having the burden of expenses removed from the equation would take away a considerable amount of their stress. In addition, my aunt Lisa (Justin's wife) would be relieved of a major burden knowing that her kids are taken care of, financially.
I didn't know what to put as the goal for the amount of money I'd like to see raised, but I do know that every dollar will mean the world to my relatives in this time of tragedy. I recognize that many people may be donating to the victims of Harvey at this time (I have donated myself), but I would be immensely greatful for your donation towards Lisa's family who has lost something so irreplaceable here in Iowa.
