Building a Christmas for Kristyn

Organized by: Carli Coyne

THE STORY:

Kristyn Rautenbach, our spontaneous, exuberant, and selfless friend, is going through a very difficult time. As most of you know, Kristyn's father recently passed away. His battle for good health lasted years, and has taken quite a toll on Kristyn's mother, his only caregiver (with the exception of Kristyn, of course). Mrs. Rautenbach is in mourning and facing a great deal of medical and living expenses, which will force her to leave their home. Can you imagine managing such heartache and stress at once? Kristyn has moved home to Scranton to be with her mom as they rebuild their lives without her dad. In true Kristyn fashion, she is facing her reality with incredible strength and a whole lot of humility. I spent some time with her during her recent visit to Pittsburgh, and never would have guessed she was going through such a challenging time. She hid the gigantic weight that she is carrying under a big, cheery smile. The Holidays are approaching. Kristyn and her mom will spend their first Christmas without her dad by themselves. I'm asking you to join me in making this Christmas as merry possible for Kristyn and Mrs. Rautenbach by making a donation. Perhaps the money we raise can be used to help fund a small getaway or to buy a few gifts. Whatever you can manage, I believe it will make a big difference. There are no two more deserving women on this earth, and I know you all agree. I do hope that you will pass this on to our friends who know and love Kristyn. For the sake of the Rautenbachs' privacy, though, please be delicate how and with whom you share :) Love, Carli
