The Cora Rayne Collection

We are Fallen Hero’s Families Supporting Fallen Hero’s Families!

The Cora Rayne Collection is a super high quality & eco-friendly, whimsical clothing line that donates at least 50% of its profit back to First Responders Families who have lost loved ones in the Line of Duty.

Our Amazing Daughter, Palm Springs Police Officer LESLEY ZEREBNY was killed in the line of duty on 10-8-16. She had just returned  from maternity leave with our 4 month old Grandaughter Cora Rayne.

To say that our family is devastated and heartbroken is an enormous understatement! Our sorrow and grief is indescribable.

The First Responders community and family has been nothing less than amazing when it came to supporting our family. The LA County Sheriff Department alone sent 5,000 deputies to Lesley's Memorial. Police Officers had come from all around the country. There were over 15,000 people at Lesley's Service. Lesley was and is our Hero ...she was born to be a Warrior!

The compassion and support from family, friends, and this awesome family of first responders has sustained us through this nightmare. We decided that we need to give back to other First Responders Families that are experiencing the same nightmare we are since we have seen first hand how priceless and precious this gift has been to our family.

Currently the average is 1-2 police officers are killed every week! THIS IS HORRIBLE AND HAS TO STOP!  We have seen that probably 99.9% of the public supports and greatly appreciates our Law  Enforcement despite what you hear on TV. 

In some of the southern states the first responders make minimum wage, work 2-3 jobs and have no benefits at all. So if you’re a stay at home mom raising your baby and your husband was just killed in the line of duty ... not only are you now going through the most unimaginable horrific nightmare but on top of that you can lose your home because you have no money to be able to pay your bills.

This is unimaginably cruel since we live in the wealthiest country in the world and don’t take care of our heroes families.

First Responders are not paid what they deserve for what they and their family risk to protect everyone else’s families. Every day they put on their uniform knowing that if the flames and demons of hell come to claim innocent lives that they will sacrifice their life and family‘s well-being for a perfect stranger and their family. Everyday their wife, husband, or kids kisses them goodby not knowing if they will be coming back home.

Not only have these families been torn apart and have lost their Mom or Dad but many are left in financial dire straights having lost their income.  We can’t let this happen!

The funds raised will be used to help launch and grow The Cora Rayne Collection. The support will allow us to partner, create, design, and launch our Company to create an amazing clothing collection and create a money machine to help these first responders families going through this daily nightmare.

We plan to partner with companies like The Honest Company, Columbia, Crocs and design a specific line honoring our precious First Responders. We will use police jargon to create the specific lines. Our first lines will be:

-IN THE LINE OF DOODY - diapers and training pants
-OVER AND OUT - pullovers and outdoor clothes
-UNDER COVER - sheets and linens
-HOLD UP - belts and suspenders
-PACKING HEAT - thermal underwear and base layers
-STAND BY - shoes and socks
-READ THEM THEIR WRITES - children's books about The Adventures of Cora  Rayne

On a personal note this will be a labor of love and extremely emotional for me as each time we meet with these families it will re open our wounds for our beautiful Lesley....but we must support these families and the sacrifice they have made for all of us. I will dedicate the rest of my life to support these families.

We welcome your input and suggestions of what you'd like to see in the Collection...I personally am asking for pro first responder individuals, companies, foundations (like Kathy Ireland, Daymond John, The Case Foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, etc) to partner with us and help us fast track our project and support First Responders Families who have been shattered and have made the ultimate sacrifice!

Thank You for your consideration and support!!!
