Support Robin and Ali

Dear Community,

Our dear friend, Robin Kirkpatrick, unexpectedly lost her 12 year old daughter Daisy on Friday January 12th.  She and her family are, of course, heartbroken beyond imagination by this unexpected disaster.  As a private practice psychotherapist, Robin works as an independent contractor and doesn’t  get paid sick or bereavement time or even eligibility for FMLA or disability.

We’ve started this GoFundMe campaign to help financially support Robin and her younger daughter  Ali during this incredibly difficult time. It’s our great hope to raise enough money so that Robin doesn’t need to work full-time for at least a few months, and she can still tend to rent, costs related to Daisy’s passing, and everything else. If you are able to contribute, any amount, we would be deeply grateful for your support and generosity.  If you’d rather use Venmo (in order to avoid processing fees), contact us for Robin's Venmo .

Robin would love to hear from people who'd like to reach out to her.  She's been feeling very supported by the calls, texts, emails and phone calls.  

Please feel free to contact any of us with question with any we apologize for the mass communication but it seemed like the most effective means to reach people.

Thank you, 

John Wiskind, Laura Stein Kellison, Gwen Davies and Julie Carroll
