My name is Elizabeth McGinnis. I live in Orange County, CA.  I need your help to get my  dear friends to Texas to lay their son, Jared Black, to rest.  He was a victim in the Santa Fe Texas school shooting today, Friday, May, 18th, 2018.

Our hearts are so sad for them. I was there when they heard the news. Such a rough day for all.  Bobby, Jared's Dad, sat in misery for 13 hours not knowing if he was one of the victims  Then he got the devastating news after 6pm.

We are trying to help get this family to Texas from California to lay Jared to rest and to assist with other expenses, time off from work, etc.  Anything is a blessing.  The Black family will not ask for help...so we are asking for them.

Thank you for your kind donation of any amount.  Nothing is too small.   God Bless.  PLEASE  SHARE.

I have removed his final expenses request. Due to JJ Watt's kind and generous offer to help the families lay there children to rest! Thank you JJ Watt! 

However, we still need to get a family of 4 to Texas. Robert Black (Dad), Nick Black (Little Brother), Papa Lou (Grandpa), & Damita Kilgore (Step-Mom.)

They were so blessed to have had Jared & Houston spend last summer here in California with them. It's wonderful memories like those that will remain in their hearts forever! I'm thankful for that time they spent.

We wanted to let everyone know the Black family is en route to Texas. They have almost landed. This would not have been possible if it weren't for all of your generous help!

The family will still have a long road to recover from their grief - if that is even something you can recover from. I'm not sure what the next few weeks or months have in store for them. But, they are staying strong for each other. It was my honor to do my little part in this for them.

We also appreciate the out pouring of support & kind words we are receiving. Those mean the world to them.

They truly are the most kind, amazing and humble people. I cherish each one of them! These are friends you just hold tight & never let go!

I've wanted to also update to all of the kind messages that have been said about me. I appreciate your words deeply. I just feel as though I'm just trying to be a good & supportive friend. Do good by those around you.

The Black family is sending their deepest appreciation to all reaching out to them.
They aren't ready to speak out yet.

But, I wanted to let you all know you are all such a blessing. Thank you for the donations and kind words.

There will be 5 family members traveling to Texas. This money is also for expenses & work loss during this traumatic time.

They are all sticking together as a family should.

God Bless and we cannot thank you enough!!!
