We’re sorry that we’re just getting over here to update Mark’s fundraising page.
As you can imagine, the death of our only son has been devastating. When Mark was killed on January 21, we faced an onslaught of details and immediate tasks that made getting access to this page impossible at the time, including gaining legal access to the fund-transfer aspects of the site.
We wanted to assure you that the funds that have been sitting in limbo are in the process of being transferred over to FANG. And as a commenter indicated, any donations that you want to make to FANG in Mark’s memory should be done directly to FANG (http://thefangcollective.org/).
This platform was one that Mark felt was the best option during his walk. It served its purpose, as Mark’s goal was to raise $10,000, and since he was killed, donations have blown past that and are now totaling nearly $27,000. Mark would have been pleased and grateful for your generosity.
We stand in solidarity with FANG and their work. In the coming months, we hope to partner with them and other organizations via the Mark Baumer Sustainability Fund (https://www.gofundme.com/themarkbaumersustainabilityfund) that we established to further Mark’s work and vision and to build something lasting in his memory.
