The Castro children lost their mother, Maria Della Rocca, after their father died 10 years earlier. YouCaring’s fundraiser, CastroChildren, collects funds for the children’s education and future.
It is always a tragedy when a family loses a parent. For children who lose a mother or father, there is no amount of money that can replace what is gone. Offering love and support matters most. Some other key areas of support include counseling and therapy, daycare, babysitting, and homecare, and financial support. Help a family however you can in their time of need, in little ways and big ways.
Financial support can make life much easier for a grieving family, and it may be needed immediately. If the deceased parent earned a solid portion or all of the family income, that means the family budget is now decimated. Setting up an online crowdfunding account for a family can open up opportunities and ease money concerns now and for the future. For example, childcare, and preschool are costly for one working parent. Orthodontistry, vacations, educational field trips, and sports teams affect the family budget. Making donations to help pay for living and medical expenses, and children’s college funds will bring welcome relief to a family in financial trouble.
Jerry Robinson lost a battle with cancer recently, and as a devoted husband and father of two boys, he will be deeply missed. His wife, Olga, must support the family on one income and try to fill Jerry’s place in her boys’ lives, with field trip volunteering and sports coaching. A YouCaring fundraiser asks for donations to help reduce the financial stress, while Olga and her two sons grieve and work through their profound loss.
