Travel and Emergency Expenses

$16,290 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 234 people in 17 months
*04/04/18 edit* We reached our initial goal today!  However, we still need help.  The search efforts are all volunteer and the fuel requires money, so Carrie needs to up the goal to help offset the cost of running the boats and aircraft. 
---------------------------------------------
This campaign is run on behalf of Carrie Holton. Her first born is missing after being swept away in a riptide.  He was rescuing his step-mother at the time.

This account is going directly to Carrie and the current goal is to cover any expenses that she might have in dealing with this emergency.

We hit our initial goal! The original goal was an arbitrary number set by a friend of Carrie's as they built this campaign for her in a hurry. She is absolutely humbled by the outpouring of love and support by friends and strangers alike.

Since stepping foot on Dauphin Island, Carrie has not stopped looking for her son. Her dedication as a mother will not let her. She has been in boats during the days scanning likely areas, she has walked the beaches of Sand Island in the evenings, and after the sun goes down she is pouring over maps with George Ruiz planning the search efforts for the next day.

This is where your help is being applied. Boats and aircraft are her best chance at finding Jevon and while the boats and aircraft are being volunteered, the fuel is not. So please, share Carrie's story. Share this campaign. Help #BringJevonHome

Friend of Carrie here with an update. Carrie is busy everyday going out everyday actively searching for Jevon.

The community of Dauphin Island is rallying around her and have been phenomenal in offering up anything and everything to help a mother find her son. You can follow along on the "Islanders For Jevon" Facebook page.

Your donations so far have gone to provide Carrie with a flight from Wisconsin to Alabama and take care of other emergency expenses. Now it is being used to help offset the cost of fuel the donated aircraft and boats are using in the search.

The search is being coordinated by retired a Coast Guardsmen named George Ruiz who has had 22 years of experience in operations like this. He is being supported by the Cajun Navy, the Southeast Texas Navy, and other volunteer search and rescue teams from all over the Gulf Coast.

Please share this campaign on your social media accounts. We need your help to bring Jevon home. Carrie needs your help.
