Toronto Mommies collected $4,367 for Elijah’s grieving family
On February 19, 2015, the heartbreaking death of three-year old Elijah Marsh shook the Toronto community and beyond. The little boy who wandered out into the bitter cold found his way into the hearts of people everywhere.
Following the announcement of Elijah’s passing, Toronto Mommies set up a GoFundMe campaign in order to lessen the financial burden of the family during this tragic time of their lives. With the help of kind people from all over the country, we were able to collect $4,367 as of February 24. The money collected (less the site fees) was transferred to the bank account set up by the family.
Toronto Mommies would like to thank everyone who contributed to the fund and who expressed their love and condolences. We would also like to send our deepest sympathies to the family.
A Facebook Page was created by the family, which posted the following press release:
