Elizabeth Diehl's Fundraiser:

This Family Needs Your Help - Can you spare $33.39?

Can you spare $33.39? This dear, sweet family needs your help...Their father, Jose Lara, bought a pre-paid funeral service through a local, privately owned funeral service provider in Los Angeles, CA several years ago to protect his family from having to incur unexpected funeral expenses. Unfortunately what this father and his family did not anticipate was a recession and an out-of-state move; however they had to go where the work took them which brought them to Bentonville, AR. A few years have passed since that time but like many hard working adults, have just managed to get by. On September 18, 2103 Jose Victor Lara passed away at 7:43 AM just after giving his grandson, Jeffery Lara (seen in the picture) a great big hug before he went to school. Thankfully they have found a local funeral home that has graciously allowed them the ability to make payment arrangements if they can come up with at least 50% before his upcoming funeral service, currently scheduled for this Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 11:00 am (CST). The total cost for his funeral services is $4,339, a thousand of which has already donated by living relatives and therefore needs to raise an additional $3,339 for this cause; an additional $1,170 of which is due immediately :(  Lets face it, with time running out, this family doesn't just need your help, they need a miracle!!! 

Although I am not family, I am a close personal friend who knows of their goodness and can personally attest to the legitimate need for your help.

For this cause and with your help I'm trying find 100 individuals willing to commit an act of random kindness by donating just $33.39 to a family in need. Could you PLEASE spread the word and help be the answer to this family's prayer?
