Oh wow.

I can’t stop saying these words.

In just one week, we’ve raised more than $6,500 for the Love to Zaria fund.


Thank you. I can’t begin to describe how much your generosity means to this family and how much it will help them. They’ll be back in North Carolina soon, to find a place to live and get accustomed to a new normal. And your support certainly will help cushion the blow.

Some lovely new sponsors have joined the cause by contributing prizes to the giveaway:

Custom initial necklace

$15 gift certificate // Ducky Stuff

This fundraiser runs for two more weeks. Let’s reach $7,500.

I know we can do it!

I am amazed every single time I check the PayPal account. Hundreds of people from all over the map have come together to help a family in need.

Thank you for igniting this awesome wave of support. Let’s keep it going!

  1. This is wonderful! Many thanks to everyone who has opened their hearts to the McMullans.

    I have an idea…why not keep this going and see if we can raise enough for a down payment on a house?? It would be so wonderful to see them realize their dream of home ownership, and create a beautiful blessing out of this tragedy. It would be a fantastic way to memorialize their sweet babies, and would be a true miracle for this family. Hope and Luke give so much of themselves to their community, I think they truly deserve a miracle!

  2. YAY!!! Let’s keep it growing!!!

  3. I’m so glad this has been so successful! I was sharing this story with a friend tonight and we were both nearly in tears.

    We are doing 5 Days of Giveaways on our blog this week if you or any of your readers want to stop by!

  4. Oh goodness, this is just amazing! Thank you for doing this Suzanne!
