The Story

Dan Baker, who is the dad of Jacob and Joe Baker, passed away suddenly January 3, 2016.  The boys are in 8th grade and have lived alone with their father since they were very young.  The money raised will be used to help the family through this difficult time.  We are blown away by how quickly people are jumping in to help!  The funeral expenses have been covered at this time, using most of the funds raised so far.  The boys got to choose details for the funeral, and this included three plots together for them.  There is a trust being established to help the boys in the future and any additional funds will be deposited there.  Please continue to help support these boys. Your donations are greatly appreciated and the family has truly been blown away by how generous everyone has been.

We have almost met the goal of $5000 for the boys, but I know there are many people still planning to donate.  I am changing the goal to $10,000 so it will not stop accepting donations.  All of the money will go to helping the family with expenses.

We are more than halfway to our goal!  Keep sharing!  I have received several messages of appreciation from the family.
