THE STORY:

Reginaldo Magalhães, a single parent, lost his life in a boating collision before dawn on Friday, February 19th 2016 on the Rio Negro, near Barcelos, Amazonas, Brazil. Eight year old Rayane Magalhães was left an orphan on that day. We, his friends and colleagues from Acute Angling and the Blackwater Explorer sportfishing yacht, mourn his loss and vow that we will not let Rayane disappear into oblivion with the loss of her beloved father. We have already pooled our resources to arrange for her ongoing support with her grandmother, but we want more for her, We want to give her the future that Reginaldo was working for - we want her to be able to get a real education that will ensure her future as an adult. Rayane's beloved father and our grieved-for friend was an even-tempered, good-hearted, hard working man, happy in his work , pursuing his goals in an honest, responsible and helpful manner. He had a plethora of skills, such as  navigator, mechanic, electrician, carpenter... he was a very important part of our team and our lives. He would be honored, as are we, by the outpouring of support and care that all who knew him have been providing.

Many of our clients and friends have asked how they can help in this hard time, and this is how: Help Rayane go to college. This fundraiser is to set up a college fund for Reginaldo's orphaned daughter. Please help however you can by donating and sharing. Acute Angling, the Reiss family, the Guedes family and the entire Blackwater Explorer staff thank you for helping us preserve Reginaldo's memory in Rayane's future.
