Kelli Ashcraft was a beautiful shining light that everyone wanted to be around. Her energy was so lively, passionate and unique, she made everyone around her smile. She was smart and driven and jammed a lot of life in her 22 years on this earth. Kelli loved her family, especially her little sister Brook. She had a close knit group of friends that meant everything to her.

Kelli was tragically taken from us by accidental carbon monoxide poisoning.  We are raising money for a campaign in Kelli's name to purchase Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarms and installation of alarms and Carbon Monoxide awareness for FREE to households that do not have them here in the San Juan Islands.

There are many homes in the San Juan's built before 2011 when CO alarms were not manditory. There are over 500 deaths a year and thousands of close calls from CO poisoning. We will be working with a local hardware store and professional installer to make sure that households that need this safety feature will get them installed.

Our family hopes that you will dontate to this cause. Every penny made will keep Kelli's name and spirit alive  in the hopes of saving lives.

Thank You to Lainey Volk who is involved with San Juan Island EMS. Lainey has agreed to write a grant to receive more money to add to the CO detector campaign in memory of Kelli Ashcraft. With funds from Gofundme and the Grant money we will be working with Browne Lumber to purchase CO detectors at the best possible price. Our goal is to give away CO detectors FREE to families and households that do not have them Island County wide.
Browne Lumber has also generously agreed to donate 200 detectors to our Campaign.
Our campaign is also working to educate the community by inviting an expert in the field of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning to come speak at our local EMS building in Friday Harbor and PodCast the event to the other islands.
Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to CO detector campaign In Memory of Kelli Ashcraft. We feel the love and the dedication to this cause.
