Help Support the Smith Family

Tragically, we lost Eli Smith on Saturday, March 27th. Eli was one of a kind; he had a brilliant, inquisitive mind, a quirky sense of humor, and a kind soul.  He was a devoted educator, and he made a positive impact on the lives of many through his work in the classroom and as an administrator.  He had an expansive range of passions and interests, and brought a spark of enthusiasm to any gathering of friends. Most importantly, though, Eli was a family man ... an incredibly loving and supportive husband to Lindsey and father to Evie and Beau. 

Eli's sudden passing leaves a hole in the lives of many, but none will feel his absence more acutely than Lindsey, Evie, and Beau. They have an uncertain road ahead, and must deal with unspeakable grief while also sorting out how to move forward.  The Smith family needs the help and support of friends near and far now more than ever. Let's show them the love that Eli always took the time to show us. 

All proceeds will go directly to Lindsey and the kids. 

Thank you!

UPDATE: In light of the incredible generosity displayed in the first 12 hours of this campaign, and at the suggestion of some of the donors, we have decided to increase our goal in the hopes of providing as much support for the family as possible. Thanks so much to those of you who have donated; it means so much.
