Help establish a trust for Nora from her mom, who loved her so very much.


The Short Story

Last Wednesday, our precious friend, Angela Giacometti was senselessly and violently taken from us, leaving behind her beautiful daughter Nora.  This campaign is directed towards building a trust for Nora from her mother and the preservation of Angela's legacy so that one day Nora will know how amazing her mother was.

The Longer Story
Angela Giacometti was taken from us tragically as a victim of gun violence.  She was a prolific artist, an intelligent, ambitious and vibrant spirit who could be described simply as a "Lovesmith."  She tackled every problem with love.  Leaving behind her most precious creation - her daughter Nora and hundreds of friends who loved her dearly, we must come together and shower Nora with love and support.   This campaign will give us all an opportunity to donate funds to a trust in Nora's name so that one day she will become fully aware of just how important and precious her mother was to her friends and family.   Please donate what you can.   Together, we can help Angela have the last word and provide Nora with insight into how truly special her mom was to all of us.

                                                                                                                      Rest In Peace Angela Giacometti

Nothing Gold Can Stay
Robert Frost, 1874 - 1963


Nature's first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf's a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay.


For those interested in how this trust will be managed and distributed, we have enlisted the capable and highly reputable Trusts & Estates Attorney, Dana Wine, who has sole access to the funds and will make sure that Nora receives the funds at the appropriate time.  Thank you for your support and love.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Its hard to believe that it has almost been a month since our beautiful friend and family member was taken from us. A lot has happened this month that might have seemed impossible in months prior but we are all doing our part to pull through, heal and pick up the pieces. Most importantly we are all doing our part to celebrate Angela's legacy and lift up Nora as high as possible and will continue for years into the future. Yesterday we crossed the 3/4 mark on our goal for the gofundme and I am so proud of this crew for chipping in and handling this tragic situation with such grace. Please continue to share the link through the 11/11 party next month.

In less than One Month (11/10) we will all be back together in Charleston in celebration of Angela's life and the countless people she inspired and loved during her time with us. If you would like to donate some art for auction at the show, please be in contact with us. If you are not able to make it, please let us know so that we can make arrangements to allow a live stream from the mini-site that I have set up for this reason.

We are incredibly thankful for all of you who gave so generously to the #oneloveforangela campaign. No doubt about it, those who cared and loved Angela and Nora are having a difficult time right now but this effort is helping a lot of us heal. Knowing that Nora is being taking care of is our number one priority and rest assure she is happy at home with her dad.
Today, the Greenville News wrote an incredible article about Angela's Life and the campaign and if you haven't read it you can find it here: http://bit.ly/oneloveangela
We have also retained the services of a highly reputable trusts & estates attorney who will be overseeing the trust for Nora
