Youth Memorial along the James River

$1,385 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 21 people in 4 months
Created February 16, 2019
Over the past few years, several youth in the Lynchburg area have tragically passed away too soon.  These youth were friends, siblings, and loved ones. I am partnering with the James River Association and Lynchburg Parks and Recreation to create a youth memorial trail on Percival's Island. With the money you donate, we hope to place five benches with signs indicating the trail will be a place of reverence and contemplation. When my friend, Avonlea Wilmer, passed away in 2015, I wanted a place where  I could think about her and remember the influential life that she led. This trail will be a sanctuary of contemplation and open to the public so everyone can have a place to remember those who have passed away too soon. To make this service project possible, we are hoping to raise the funds by June 1 and every little bit will help!

Wow wow wow. I have felt so incredibly blessed lately and the Lord is really there for me.

An anonymous donor has generously stepped forward and said that they will match the monetary value of anything donated to this project. This means that I need 5,000 dollars now, not 10! This is a very doable goal and with your help (that I have gotten so far and in the future) it will be made possible.

I will be pouring concrete pads for benches on May 20th. For anyone who wants to join me just text me for the details.

You all are truly amazing and supportive. The Lord has really helped me out this week.

Special Thank you tonight! After a large anonymous donation we are able to complete the first phase of my project! I am in the planning stages of clearing the trail, buying signs, and ordering our first bench. I am SO excited! My dream is becoming a reality!

I have hand delivered numerous letters to local businesses over the last two weeks. Unfortunately, I had a few technical issues with our Gofundme page, and missed a few donations. I have fixed the problem and I’m trying to spread the word. My next goal is to have phase two complete by June 1st. Every little bit helps. Thanks for your continued support!
