Support for Merlos (Olsey) Mukaj

$15,104 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 163 people in 11 months
Merlos (Olsey) Mukaj was taken away too soon from us. He was senselessly and tragically shot by a person who had absolutely no reason to. He was loved by everyone who had the chance to get to know him. A true friend!
He was an immigrant and sole bread earner for his family in Albania. His parents had taken a loan against their home so Olsey could pursue the American dreams and change his family's future. He had promised to bring his younger brother to America for higher studies. A promise that we want to help fulfill. Please donate so his family can be sent support.
Wish we could bring him back. May his soul rest in peace and rise in glory.

He was an extremely joyful guy who always kept a smile on his face no matter what. He would lift the spirit of his friends and family just by being himself. He carried a warm positive energy that brightened the day of everyone he came in contact with. He will be profoundly missed by his friends and family. We ask that you all try to donate in order to ease the financial strain on his family. We’ve created this campaign for the family We welcome any and all donations. No amount is too small. Please help us honor his memory by donating.

My name is Shaleem Pervez. Osli was a dear friend and I’ve created this campaign for his family so that they could be spared the financial strain.

In terms of the withdrawal, I'm in the process of contacting his parents.
