The Riley Memorial Fund

A family has lost their son in a horrific accident during a time of the year focused on family, togetherness and cheer. Read more here and here. Most of us can’t even imagine the pain this family is experiencing not to mention the financial strain. It’s my Christmas wish to be able to help this family.

I know that a childs death is sad and isn’t like a baby with a disease or curing something but it’s still just as important. If you son or daughter was killed in an accident what would you do? Every dollar you donate will be one entry into the drawing for prizes. I will get an email with your info and the amount you’ve donated and will email you back to confirm and give you your drawing numbers. When the auction ends tentatively on the 15th of January, possibly the 31st I will go through and each item with them numbers to pick a winner.  Decide to give up your morning coffee to Riley for a day or whatever your little daily pleasure is and you give $5 to a deserving family and get five entries to win some cool stuff!
