Fundraiser for Funeral of Toddler Killed in March Crash Exceeds Goal in A Day
An online fundraiser to benefit the family who lost a toddler in a devastating multi-vehicle accident last month has exceeded its $5,000 goal in a single day.
The child, 3-year-old Kimora Landrum, and her mother and four-year-old brother were all ejected from the woman's car during a catastrophic collision on Highway 69 in late March. The toddler was then struck by a third vehicle, which did not stop at the scene. Police are still searching for that driver.
In a GoFundMe campaign launched Monday, Kimora's father Trent Landrum said his family is struggling to find funds to cover funeral services for the girl and ongoing medical bills for his wife, who remains hospitalized.
"We are still searching for justice for my 3-year-old daughter. he wrote. "To know Kimora (Minnie) was to love her! There was so much more life my daughter deserved! As I grieve typing this I am absolutely devastated by my daughter's passing."
Landrum said he was seeking to raise $5,000, and at the time this report was written a day later, the fundraiser had already drawn more than $7,500.
"Anything will be helpful and grateful to help with the homegoing service of Kimora," he said in the post. "Please consider donating if you are able to do so. We are so very grateful for every donation during this difficult time."
