The Story

Halfway through my college education on April 12, 2014 our families lives changed forever when our beautiful 2 year old daughter drowned in a swimming pool accident. To say the past 2 years have been difficult is an understatement.

Through our grief we have been blessed with amazing friends and family who have stood beside us and even took it upon themselves to honor our daughter. With great generosity my classmates from Texas Chiropractic College created the first non-profit "McKenna Eve Bundy Scholarship" to help students that have endured difficult trials by financially aiding them through their education.

With her 2 year "angel anniversary" around the corner our family wanted to take this difficult occasion and turn it into an opportunity to lift the burden off of others who also might be facing a life changing situation right now. At this time we are hoping to raise $2000 for the "McKenna Eve Bundy Scholarship" and spread McKenna's light to all those who need her angel touch.

These students are hand picked by our family personally and starting this summer we will be awarding the scholarship for the first time. We have made the deadline to the end of April since her anniversary is so soon but who knows, maybe we will reach a $1000 by then!

Thank you in advance for all of your generosity and support. The only reason we are even able to do this service for others is because of the example you have set by showing our family such genuine compassion over the past 2 years. We love you all and can never show our true gratitude for showing us that our Kenna Bear is not the only angel we have standing near by. Thank you!

Love,
The Bundy's

This is a video from my graduation this past December when my classmates surprised our family with the creation of the "McKenna Eve Bundy Scholarship". Best graduation present ever! The 2nd video is a tribute I sang for her on her 4th birthday this past year: November 17, 2011.

Sooo.... today we hit our goal of $1000!!!!

I can't believe it! We thought it would be a miracle to raise it by McKenna's anniversary and yet here we are! We still have a week and a half left!

After talking it over with our family we have decided to keep the fundraiser open until her anniversary (April 12) if anyone still wants to donate. Everything will still go to the scholarship and in all honesty it has been a great outlet for our family in dealing with with her anniversary approaching.

We are so blessed to have such great friends. Not only have many of you donated but you have also shared her story and because of that we have gotten to witness the kindness of strangers. Several people that have donated I have never met before but they have shown their compassion and support through donating to the scholarship!

I am beyond words at this point with how much generosity has been given in honor of our angel. Thank you so much! Thank you for helping our daughter's legacy live on the best way we know how... by uplifting others in their time of need.
