Friends and Strangers, we need your help!

My name is Cameron, best friend and best man to Raymond De Santiago.   As many of your know Ray and Christina are scheduled to get married this weekend 3/15/2014.  

As many of you don't know, their house was robbed Saturday night, one week before their wedding and all of the cash they had on hand to pay the vendors was stolen.   Specifically, the cash that was to buy the flowers for the wedding and due to the florist Tuesday.   His home and 10 other homes were hit in the area.

Ray lost his job a little more than a month ago and has been struggling to cover the costs of the wedding already.   This robbery is a major set back and as it stands, puts him in a position to not have the available funds to fully cover the wedding and honeymoon.

I call upon you, all of you reading this to please do a little something to help.   $5, $10, $20, $100 whatever you can contribute would surely help go along way.

In addition, any funds that exceed the goal are going to go towards a large safe, home security system, starting a neighborhood watch and any additional expenses associated with the wedding.

With over 2,580 unique visitors, 75 donors and $6,425 in 24 hours we have successfully achieved our funding goal, and some!

I am excited to deliver these funds to Ray and Christina.

I would like to give a very special thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone who donated, shared the story or video and sent words of comfort and love.

A combined effort of friends, family and complete strangers made all of this possible.

Any additional funds raised will be used to provide Ray and Christina with funding for home security and a safe.

It is nice that you have friends that would donate 2000.00 to your wedding. My grand daughter who was 11 just passed away on February 28, we did not reach out goal. :-( so she was cremated because it was much cheaper than a traditional funeral. Good luck to you.
