Rachel's Wish Lives On

Comments Off

As a big support of the public safety and prevention organization KidsAndCars.org, the story today on CNN about Rachel is worth talking about. Rachel was killed in an automobile crash when she was only 9 years old. Nothing is more tragic than the death of a child. Rachel’s death has served as a rallying point for a charity that she was raising money for when she died

Here is what Rachel wrote:

On June 12th 2011, I’m turning 9. I found out that millions of people don’t live to see their 5th birthday. And why? Because they didn’t have access to clean, safe water so I’m celebrating my birthday like never before. I’m asking from everyone I know to donate to my campaign instead of gifts for my birthday. Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater projects in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is "proved" when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth. My goal is to raise $300 by my birthday, June 12, 2011. Please consider helping me.



Thank you so much!!!

You can still give to that charity, that has now raised over $ 1 million for the clean water charity. 54,000 people have served and 28,000 have made contributions to the charity from Rachel’s page: PAGE URL: Rachel’s 9th Birthday Wish. Please do so today.

Rachel lives on in the minds and hearts of all of us, and the wish of a 9 year old is still doing good in the world. Please consider making a gift to this charity in memory of a great little girl who is still teaching us how to do well by doing good. And support organizations like Kidsandcars.org which saves lives through public education about child safety and cars.
