This fund has been set up to assist the Mark and Jackie Barden in their time of need. It will help cover whatever expenses, now or future, that come as a result of this tragedy. It has been vetted by CNN and is listed as an approved fund on CNN.com.
Friends and supporters have established the fund as a way to provide direct financial assistance to the immediate family of Ana Grace Márquez-Greene, a victim of the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.
The wish of Chase’s family is to remember Chase’s vitality and spirit and that of all of the victims. All of the donations made will go to help the Sandy Hook Elementary families – both victims and survivors – that have been affected by this tragedy. The vision is to inspire change across our American communities to ensure our children are safely protected from something like this ever happening again. We will begin by enabling initiatives focused on children, family, healing and school safety that will positively change the lives of children and their families in our local community. Donations can be made via to the Chase Kowalski Memorial Fund website using the PayPal link.
