Dear friends and family of Shari and Bram ~

Thank you for visiting this donation page in honor of Shari and Bram Dorresteijn. Shari and Bram were tragically killed in a car accident in Wisconsin on April 24, 2014, leaving behind their two beautiful children. It is quite evident that Shari and Bram have touched many lives around the world, as the outpouring of love and generosity has been extraordinary.

Now, we all have the special opportunity to help their young children, Wesley and Charlotte, by donating to the Shari and Bram Dorresteijn Memorial Fund. Together, we can help their children and families by giving the gift of financial support and peace of mind. Let's keep the enduring legacy of Shari and Bram alive and well for years to come.

A special thank you to First Business Bank for your support and guidance in managing these fruitful donations. 

Thank you all very much for your heartfelt donations. And, please spread the word. Let's make Shari and Bram proud.

I met Bram on a trade fair in 2013 in Norway. He was such a powerful and amazing person, full of ideas. Today I remembered that he gave me his business card. As I tried to google him I found out what happened to him and his wife in April. I really can’t explain how sad it makes me! I wish his family especially his two little kids all the best and all the love they need. May God bless them!

The testimony of other's words about these two wonderful young people truly touches my heart. Especially for their young children who will never know the benefit of having such wonderful parents. It is times like these hen I most value modern technology that allows us to reach out across distance and time and try to help. May God bless this family and all those who do what the can for them.

Such a very tragic accident. My thoughts are with both families and those 2 darling children. God is blessing the 2 young ones, with a aunt that is taking these children into her home, to provide them with a new family, to love them and care for them.
