Created September 16, 2017
Twyla Roscovich died on September 8th, 2017 leaving behind a four-year-old daughter Ruby Lynn Ross for which this fund has been established, in trust.

Upon Ruby's 19th birthday she will have access to these funds so that she may pursue the education and/or training of her choice, and have the opportunity to follow her dreams.

Beyond that, this fund is an expression of the love and gratitutde the world had for her mama, Twyla. This coast that she lived and fought for with all of her heart is now a lonelier place for her passing.

Twyla put everything she had into her work and did not have the  means to leave Ruby with a secure financial future. We're hoping this campaign will help make one aspect of Ruby's adulthood a little bit easier.

The campagin will be closed at midnight on February 8th 2018,  what would have been Twyla's 39th birthday.

The GoFundMe campaign is being managed by Leni Goggins, Twyla's step sister who alongside Twyla's family has found great comfort in knowing what an immense reach and influence Twyla had.

On behalf of Twayla's family, Thank you for your support.

Dear supporters, Our campaign has earned $70,104! It is difficult to believe it was four months ago that we began, with the hopes of raising $5,000. We could not of dreamed we'd raise so much money for Ruby. This was made possible by you! It fills our hearts with gratitude and hope and we are very proud of Twyla for the big life she dared to live, inspiring so many people.

Today I am deactivating this campaign and moving on to other initiatives in Twyla's name including the Twyla Roscovich Memorial Fund held with Tides Canada ( https://tidescanadagifts.secure.force.com/donate/?id=a306100000193tk). This is a scholarship fund to send a young film student to Gulf Island Film and Television School each year. That campaign sits at around $9,000 with $16,000 more to raise.

It is very hard to say goodbye. And words escape me to express how much this campaign has meant to me and my family, and Twyla's chosen family in a dark time. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the love.

Wow is all I can say right now. We reached our goal of $68,000 by mid-day, on Twyla's 39th birthday. What an amazing gift for Ruby. I do believe Twyla is with us in ways we don't understand and she is smiling today.

I will sign off with a final post tonight, but this afternoon and evening, if you can continue to share this post as it is our last day of fundraising for Ruby's trust.

Hello, One day remains in this campaign. Just sending y'all a quick reminder to share and donate if you have the means :) Thank you again for going on this journey with us. This campaign has been a bit of light in an otherwise dark time in our families history.

We have four days left before we end our GoFundMe for Twyla's daughter Ruby. Twyla's birthday is this Thursday, February 8th. She would have been 39 years old. Many of you would send her birthday wishes on this day, so this year (in addition to your own celebrations) might I suggest sending a small donation, even $10 to this campaign as a way of saying happy birthday to Twyla. Please share and make sure everyone who wanted to contribute gets the chance. Thank you!
