Vaidehi Williams Memorial Fund

Vaidehi Williams (professionally known as Vai Campbell) was one of the victims of the Conception diving boat accident off Santa Cruz Island on September 2nd.

Vaidehi has touched so many people from so many walks of life. Anyone who has spent just a little time with her has been enchanted by her energy and felt the instant warmth of her friendship. She had a way of bringing people together, and seized every opportunity to live life to its fullest. As we all feel so much pain and sadness, we are also feeling the strength of her community as we are reaching out to each other.

With this page, we want to get together as the community she has created to give back to the ones hit the hardest by her loss: Her husband and two children. We are with them in their grief and support them however we can through these difficult times. With grief this large, it feels that there is just so little we can do as individuals for them, but together we can! Vaidehi and Sarma were an amazing co-parenting team and her loss also means a significant loss of income. Please donate as much as you are able, so we can help alleviate at least one of their worries. We extend our love to everyone.
