Fundraiser Details

Our family has been rocked to its very core last night (January 25th) when our cousin Matt was stopped at a stoplight where a drunk driver hit his car at high speeds.  The impact killed his son Zane who is only 3 years old.  Matt and his son Holden were sent to the hospital.  The driver was likely not a US citizen.  As such he likely does not have insurance and therefore all medical and funeral bills will fall to the family.  We are so very saddened by this tragic event. 

Please help them by donating anything you can and keeping them in your prayers. Our prayers go out to the Thurbers as they try to get through this horrible time.

It's not every day you get to see an entire city come together to help a family.  Donations have come from Utah, Texas, Canada, and even from across the pond in the UK.  The continuous shares on Facebook, the prayers, kind words, and donations have shown us all how good people really are.  We see a lot of bad on the news, but there is so much more good out there.  Thank you for being part of the good.  Whether you donated $1.00 or $5,000, whether you said a million prayers or just one, we are beyond grateful for the outpouring of love and support for the Thurbers.  You have all been a huge part in makinging a tragedy a bit more bareable for this family.  I hope your good works come back to you tenfold.

God Bless!
