UPDATE, 12:55 p.m. 4-8-18:
Thank you for the support shown to this family already! Over $8,000 in just 24 hours! I know there was some confusion as people thought this was just a link to the Caring Bridge site due to the same picture being used. This is a GoFundMe site to raise money to support Jane and her kids.
For those that have questions on how GoFundMe works, GoFundMe takes a small credit card processing fee for each donation made. After that, all of the money raised goes directly to Jane and the kids. They will have direct access to the GoFundMe website to take withdrawals from this fund when they need it and as they see necessary. They can withdraw funds even while we are still trying to raise money for them. I am not involved in the handling or withdrawal process of these funds from GoFundMe. It really is a wonderful way to be able to rally support, help the family, and allow them to have direct control over the funds.
If you have any questions about GoFundMe or this appeal, please feel free to send me a direct Facebook message, and I will be happy to answer any questions.
Once again, THANK YOU for the amazing show of support for this family! Please keep sending love, hugs, prayers, and support to all of them! Let's keep this going! Please feel free to share this post.
Hello, my name is Karen Allen, and I serve on the Fort Thomas Independent School Board.
As some of you may know, Jane Daly, a 4th grade teacher at Moyer Elementary, was hospitalized and placed in a medically-induced coma. Recently, while sitting with other school personnel, we were discussing how we could help Jane and her five children. Jane’s sudden and serious illness leaves the family facing large medical bills, travel costs for her daughter, Lauren, who had to return unexpectedly from oversea studies to be with their mother, and innumerable other challenges.
We came up with this idea but did not want to move forward without the family’s blessing given their normally private life.
Through contact with the oldest daughter, Megan, she confirmed that they are not ones to usually ask for help but admitted to already worrying about bills and knows that every little bit will help. She stressed that any donation would be warmly appreciated by the family, but that none are expected.
We know the great strength of the Moyer and greater Fort Thomas community and ask that you please consider donating to help relieve some of the financial anxiety and pressure. This will allow the family to focus on more important priorities. Let’s rally together around this family to bring hope, support, prayers, and love. I know how truly grateful the family is for the support they have received.
Keep it coming! Thank you!
