Donations in Rob's Memory

Dear Friends,


Since learning of the horrible tragedy of Carly's husband's murder, I have followed news reports surrounding his death.


A comment made on a news site provided an account number where donations are being accepted in Rob's memory, presumably to benefit the family. Please note that I have not verified this information in any way. Please do not make a donation before verifying the authenticity yourself! But I know so many of us want badly to do something to support Carly, so I didn't want to keep the information to myself.


Here is the account information:
-Wells Fargo Bank in Marquette, Michigan
-Account # 1558703367

I just have to say that Megan was the real originator of this idea to organize something for Carly. (In fact my intelligent response to Megan's "we should do something" was "What CAN we do?" (Picture me saying this while hyperventilating and feeling generally helpless. LOL) Thanks Megan for getting the ball rolling.

I know what you mean Adrienne. I was just so shocked and thought I want to help her; but didn't have a clue as to how!


I am still in shock really, tears come to my eyes whenever I think about it. My heart breaks for her. Life just isn't fair. I hope they catch the b*stard who did this very soon.


I was very touched by my DH's reaction though - he's not a very emotional type and normally mocks me slightly for my "forum friends". When he heard about Carly though he said I should take the money for the donation from our joint account, as he wanted to help too, which I thought was really sweet!

That is sweet. I actually read Carly's post (or maybe Kelly's FB message) while in a group of friends and I just did that super huge shocked gasp--and everyone was like: WHAT!? And they were all SOOO sympathetic when I told them. I was glad no one made less of it because Carly is an "online" friend--because in some ways, you guys are my very closest friends.

FYI - I just posted a thread on the April expecting club leading people here. I know she was also active over there, so I'm sure there will be ladies there willing to donate as well.

I just sent you an email too. Thanks to you (and Megan) for organizing this...like the others, I felt like I wanted to do something but wasn't sure what.

I am still in shock when I think about what has happened to Carly. It's so frightening, and I hope she has lots of support from family and friends.

Mari, I am from Canada and was able to send money through PayPal. Paypal works with dozens and dozens of countries, so I'm sure Argentinia is one of them. Also, as someone else said, you should still be able to buy something from the registry yourself, your credit card will just be charged in US funds and you might have to pay an additional fee, depending on your card's terms.
