The Ghaly Family

$78,003 of $80,000 goal

Raised by 214 people in 12 months
Created October 8, 2017
Our beautiful friend - a daughter, a sister, a mother and a wife - Mariam Ghaly, age 42,  has passed away suddenly after a tragic car accident left her in a coma for 6 days.  She is survived by her loving husband Wagih and her two young children Marina, 15 and Kyrollos, 13.  Her whole family  who were also with her in the car during the accident, will need an abudance of support as they are replaying the last week in their minds. Trauma counselling, medical expenses as well as living costs will also be needed until they can find peace with their lives moving forward without their best friend, biggest supporter, wife and mother. 

As we all know, funeral expenses along with the changes that are to come for this sweet family won't be easy and we need to do whatever we can do help them in this difficult time. Wagih has left his job in Vancouver, WA to be with his children in Bellingham, WA. No one knows what is to come in the next few months and they will need our help. 

As a community, we have been doing our best so far to assist them with prayers and love. However the family is now needing more from us as they try to move forward. If it is within your capabilities, please help assist them financially at this time as well.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Yesterday was a difficult day for all of us who were at Mariam's funeral, as we said our last goodbye's to our beautiful Angel, we all felt brokenhearted. We will miss having such a smiling soul in our midst. The sun was shining and we thoroughly believe that was our sign here knowing that heaven was celebrating.

Once again, the family is so thankful for all your support, love, care and prayers. Please do not forget to keep her family in Egypt in your prayers as well as they try to find peace from so far away.

I wanted to put an update out as I have heard that many people are asking if we will be closing the GoFundMe page once we hit 80k. Rest assured that we will not be closing it and will keep it open for as long as we need to. We need your support to hit our target as well as go above and beyond it if possible. Please share with your family and friends on Facebook as well as any social media template. It is clear by the full Church, the hugs and love shown to the Ghaly family yesterday that they are so supported and loved by all. This is our way to keep showing them this as they move on to the reality of the hospital bills, etc.

Once again, please rest assured that this money is going into a bank account straight to the Ghaly family and will not be touched by any third parties. If you want to know what the money is going towards, please refer to our first message. We appreciate you assisting them with taking this unnecessary financial burden as they move on with their every day lives.

Thank you for your support and love - this could not have been done without all of you.

Thank you to all those who have been donating - we are so grateful to all of those who have donated, shared and prayed for Mariam and her beautiful family.

As of right now, we are reaching our goal so very quickly and we hope to even surpass it. This is why we have continued to push our goal further - we never realized how quickly we would get here and we are so grateful to each and every one of you. Every bit of money helps the Ghaly family move forward without the financial burden and reminder of this tragic loss.

Just yesterday, we had 3,994 visits to the site and over 14.9k in total. Mariam's story has been shared over 400 times on Facebook. God is good, even when we mourn - and this is a true reminder of that.

Please continue to share Mariam's story and our GoFundMe page to everyone you know - you have no idea how much this helps.

A big thank you to all the news outlets listed below for following Mariam's story and helping us raise awareness to help the Ghaly family.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Firstly, we want to thank those who have donated this far. It is amazing what a community can do in a time of grief.

Mariam was a beautiful soul that touched so many of us deeply, and this money we are raising will help her family so much at this time.

I know that some questions are being raised as to why we went through the GoFundMe route :

1. GoFundMe raises awareness outside of our community, for people all around Vancouver and Washington State to be aware of this tragic incident and to be able to help her family in any way they can.

2. Social Media is a large part of raising awareness and funds - over 200 people have shared this GoFundMe page and in that, we are raising more money than we had ever thought we could.

3. Not only are we raising awareness through people, but many news outlets and large corporations have contacted us on how they can help.

4. GoFundMe withdraws the money directly into a bank account. We decided that this route was transparent to all those who are donating and secure. This money will go directly to the hands of the the Ghaly family and will not be touched by any other parties.

Please continue to donate what you can and keep praying for Mariam's sweet family that needs our prayers, love, support and care at this time.
