There appears to be a problem with the Caledonian Tragedy Family Relief Fund

866f439b-ce51-47b7-a623-4f82bcfefee4_profileWhen tragedy struck off the coast of Vancouver Island, many people came forward to support the victims, the family’s of the fishermen, in their time of need. After receiving a call from one of them last evening, I am relaying my concerns. One of these lady’s has not received her husbands last settlement. Her lights are about to be shut off. It seems that two of these lady’s have not received any of the funds from this fundraiser, which appears to have expired when clicking on the link. Link to the post is here, and it has the link attached to You Caring site. Inquiry’s will be made. 09:29

Caledonian Tragedy Family Relief Fund – For: Wes Hegglund, Keith Standing, Doug White

This fund has been established for the families of the three fishermen who lost their lives on September 5, 2015, when the fishing vessel Caledonian sank off the coast of Vancouver Island. Veteran Skipper Wes Hegglund, age 55, and Engineer Keith Standing, age 48, and Doug White, age 41, were all from Vancouver Island. Their loss has been a heartbreaking tragedy for their families, colleagues, and the entire community. Pacific Seafood, the crew’s employer and owner of the Caledonian, will match 100 percent of all donations made on this site. All proceeds will be donated to the immediate surviving family members. Click here to donate 22:28
