Merry Christmas! I hope everyone celebrating today has a happy and healthy holiday.
This is the first post of a new installment I am adding to my blog. Each Friday, I will be posting 3-5 missing persons/murder cases that have currently active GoFundMe pages or other online fundraisers. Please consider supporting the families of missing persons by donating and/or sharing these stories! Also feel free to request cases to be added.
The holidays can be a very tough time for the families of missing persons. Though these families may still gather to celebrate, they are constantly reminded that there is a loved one missing from the celebration--and that loved one's whereabouts are unknown. A special time of year often becomes devastating for these families--especially after years pass without any answers. We can support these families by donating to their causes.
Links to the fundraisers and full case write-ups are provided as well.
