Support Fund for Danny Kirchstein's Daughter

Hello this is Emily Gear and I am a childhood friend of Danny Kirchstein and his family. I have known the Kirchstein family since I was 8 years old.  

On March 22nd, the Kirchstein family tragically lost their beloved Danny, only 42 years old. Having known Danny my whole life I can say that he was the most kind-hearted, compassionate and loving person. He was the bigger brother I didn't have. He was a tremendously hard worker, very driven and so incredibly intelligent and talented. His life was dedicated to his daughter, family and career. He was always giving in some way. Whether it was through his talent, his time, by encouraging others or sweet gestures. He was so selfless, respectful and warm. He is so terribly missed. 

Numerous people have been asking how they can help his family. So many wonderful gestures have been offered to the Kirchstein's but right now his family's focus is on his beautiful young daughter Cielo, 8 years old. There isn't much we can do to ease the pain of her losing her father at such a young age. For those asking how to support, an educational account has been set up in his daughters name. We know this is a small way we can bring a little bit of peace to this heartbroken, grieving family. 

100% of all donations will go into an account solely for Cielo. 

We ask that you please pray for this family. Prayers for healing, comfort and peace are welcomed. ❤️

Thank you,

Emily Gear
