Fundraising pages created to help survivors of crash that killed 4 UGA students

Two fundraising efforts were created to help the survivors
of the April 27 crash in which four University of Georgia students were
killed on a two-lane road in Oconee County.
A YouCaring page was created to help Agnes Kim, the UGA student who remains in critical condition at Athens Regional Medical Center, while a Teespring page was created to aid Abby Short, an emergency medical technician with National EMS who sustained injuries requiring surgery. 
Kim’s YouCaring page has raised $42,360 as of Tuesday morning, with a goal of $50,000.
“Right now, we may not have any control over her healing
and recovery, but one thing we can do is help lighten the burden of
hospital bills that are sure to come,” the page reads. “She is currently
in critical condition, but even once she wakes up there will no doubt
be more expenses and bills. At this moment, her parents and siblings are
worried about her health, as are the rest of us, but let’s gather our
resources and alleviate the forthcoming financial burden, even if it’s
just a little bit.
“As always, please continue praying for our dear friend
Agnes,” it goes on to read. “Her body is broken, but we wholeheartedly
believe that the God who created her can also heal her. We will be
posting prayer updates to this site periodically. We hope that when she
wakes up, this show of unity, solidarity, and appreciation can put a big
smile on her face.”
The Teespring page to benefit Short offers a T-shirt read “Keep Calm. Everyone else is freaking out too.”
