Ok, I don't really know what to do, but I feel like this is the best place for me to put this. I don't have facebook or any other form of social media so this is the only place I frequent online. Anyhow, my Aunt Lisa passed away suddenly on Sunday. She was a single mother and left behind 4 kids. Ages are 8, 11, 18, 28. The 28 year old has taken on the full burden of the funeral expenses as well as the challenge of raising his 2 youngest brothers. There was no money left behind nor do any of the kids have a nest egg to contibute. I'm helping out all I can as many are doing in my family to help cover funeral costs. I plan to take him grocery shopping when I can and filling his cabinets with food as well. Now comes the hard part... I'm asking if anyone could spare a few bucks to help these kids put their mother to rest. The link is https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/cbPh1. They have 8 more days to raise $4000 to pay for the funeral costs. They are already a little over halfway there, but donations have fizzled out a bit and that's why I thought maybe I would post it here. Anyways, thanks for reading this, and I hope I haven't broken any forum rules by doing this..

Sorry for your loss.

I don't think you broke any rules...if you did, that would be a stupid rule. I sent a little help along.

Thanks everyone for your help an kind words. The funeral was today and the boys are doing much better than I expected. The oldest says he's ready and excited about the challenge he has in front of him. The family expresses great gratitude to the big hearts that have reached out. Again, thanks all.

DB... I sent some money that way. Please let me know if they need more and we will charge money on a TWC ride for admission to donate to the family. I'm serious. As Bikers we have a responsibility to take care of those that are on the positive path of life.

The response here is unbelievable. Thanks a million on behalf of the boys. When I decided to post the link and ask for help I never thought I'd get this kind of response. It truly is refreshing to see how many people in "our" community looks out for one another and their families. Again thanks everyone. You've help lift a major burden off them boys.

Sorry, been working the dreaded nightshift so iv been slacking here... The oldest sons name is John Johnson, he would be the one to make the M.O. out to. Mud, if you would like, I can get you their address or I can take it to them if you like. The goal has been reached by the help of many. The boys have costs covered to put their mom to rest thanks to a lot of generous donations. Thanks again fellas.

Ok, I'm sorry I missed the boat here. I meant to give but life has has been pretty crazy here lately. Was gonna donate but as the others said it's already closed I need to donate else wise.
So, I need to get on late donations bus and get my cash thrown in with another or I can meet you again some time.
