In Memory of Kelli Ashcraft
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.
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.
So who do I contact to help out.....I am working with a friend at the clinic to get a doctor who has specialized in CO poisoning as a speaker to educate the community and will seek grants to help fund detectors. Lainey Volk Friend Community member San Juan Is land EMS
