Memorial Tree and Plaque for Ana

$650 of $400 goal

Raised by 16 people in 1 month
This fundraiser is for friends and family that would like to be part of the purchase of a memorial tree (a hardy, mid sized flowering tree) and a plaque for the Cedar Shoals Memorial Garden in Ana's memory.  Her host mother will also collect in person, if you would prefer that. Any extra funds beyond the tree and plaque will be used to get a larger plaque, some other memorial item such as a bench, or to publish Ana's novels, poems, and short stories. 38335870_1554733084685132_r.jpeg

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! We have enough to already to buy the tree, flowers, and sundial for the garden. The tree and flowers have been purchased and planted at Cedar Shoals high school. I will take some pictures shortly. Drake has picked out a few favorite sundials, but we're still looking.

Any money that is raised from now on out will go to the publication of Ana's poems and novels, which will be used to fund a scholarship with Ana's exchange agency AYSUA.

If you are interested, the Cedar Shoals Theater is putting on a show called Iemanja is celebration of Ana's life. It will be this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. https://www.facebook.com/events/2209419275802664/

There will be a video of it that I will try and post at some point here as well.

Thank you everyone! Ana's family both here and in Brazil are so thankful for the support here through the GoFundMe , the memorial service, food delivery, flowers, cards, and everything in between.

We've exceed the amount for the our original plan and asked Drake if he has any ideas. He wants to get a sundial for Cedar Shoals like the one for my little brother Jeremy at Barnett Shoals Elementary. He sits by that sundial every day after school and loves it. Ana, a lover of the sun, science, and punctuality, would be pleased with the idea as well.

We've started looking and feel there are some great options in our current price range. When we find something we like, we'll post it here.
