Sandra's Kids

$32,404 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 204 people in 8 months
Patrick and Luke's mom, Sandra Carusi has passed away from a rare form of cancer on August 13th, 2018.  I know that all of Sandra's loving friends and family would love to help in some way.  Raising  funds to help support these kids will leave a great legacy for Sandra and how much she was loved by all!!!!

This fundraising effort was initiated by the comedy and radio community of which Sandra was a big part with her radio show "Inside Jokes" on AM640 part of Corus Entertainment.  Sandra was a major contributor to the comedy community by hosting many popular comedic personalities on her show.  Those comedians want to pay tribute to her by helping raise funds for Sandra's children.  Those friends have asked me, as her sister, to manage this fund and provide opportunities for the kids that they might not otherwise have.  The family has decided to use these donations for camps in the summer that foster confidence building and leadership qualities.   

We are all very grateful for the immense generosity.  Patrick and Luke ARE VERY GRATEFUL!!!!

Hello to all of Sandra's friends and family.
It's been almost 6 months since Sandra's passing. Considering the circumstances, Patrick and Luke have been a couple of troopers! The challenges are immense but they seem to find new ways of coping with their loss.
Luke has been immersed in hockey for most of the winter after his arm cast was removed in November. Christmas was difficult for all but joy found us when we began telling stories of Sandra and what a bright light she was for all.
There are no words to describe the loss that the kids have experienced but they soldier on and have made us proud on how they try to find positive outlets.
That have each been registered in summer camps thanks to each of you donors.
Please share this update and help us raise more funds to ensure that these kids have every opportunity that Sandra wanted them to have.
Love to all who have helped Patrick and Luke!

Hello friends of Patrick and Luke. The kids are back to school and navigating to try and find a new normal. Luke had a little setback with a playing accident and had day surgery in September so he is missing hockey for 10 weeks while his hand recovers. Patrick started grade 7 last month and is doing well right out of the gate. They have a very loving housekeeper who is getting them ready every day for school.
Your generous donations will help with the housekeeper and educational camps during school holidays.
Thank you for the ongoing support. We will keep you posted!!!!
