GoFundMe pays off for U-CF family

The GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for the Johnson Family has worked. The family needed $80,000 to buy a van capable of handling two motorized wheelchairs for the family’s two sons who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The campaign began in December.

In a letter, Joanna Johnson wrote:

“YOU DID IT! This amazing community showed up big and with all of the money raised we are shopping for a handicapped accessible van and hope to have it in our driveway this spring. I am finding it incredibly difficult to find the right words to say thank you, but truly, there are no words to express our overwhelming gratitude for your generosity. Every time I think about what this community has done, I am brought to tears by all of the people, near and far, current and retired colleagues, past and present students and their families from grades K-12, and so many people that I do not know or have never met who gave so selflessly and sent messages of encouragement and love.

“People often ask me how we stay so positive. How can we possibly be down when we are supported over and over again by so many people? When you open your heart to the kindness of others, anything is possible. Your incredible kindness makes our hearts so very full.  Many blessings for you and yours for 2018.”

Much love,
Joanna, Paul, Elliott and Henry Johnson
