Community comes together to help family of 6-year-old killed while crossing the street

Students and faculty at Whittier Elementary School are heartbroken by the loss of 6-year-old Ambrosia Amalatitoda .

The little girl was hit while crossing State Street at about 1500 South on March 14, and died the next day. As a way to help students deal with the tragedy the school organized a donation drive for her funeral expenses Friday.

On a cart, a picture of Ambrosia is surrounded by signs of caring along with buckets of spare change and envelopes filled with dollar bills. Dozens of her classmates came forward with money from their piggy banks and their pocket change to help Ambrosia's family. Parents, teachers, and students donated more than $1,000.

This was a hard article to read because I have a 6 year old and I can only imagine the heartache this poor family is going through.  I was happy to see how people are reaching out to help them.

People reach out to a Family who experiences 2 Losses

I was amazed at this blog I found a couple of weeks ago.  First because of  what had happened to their family--first their 10 year old son passed away and then 3 months later the dad passed away.  I can't even imagine the pain and sorrow their family must be going through.  I've been following her blog and I was so impressed that a bunch of people in their community volunteered their time and services to completly finish their unfinished yard for them.  They added special touches like a remembrance garden.  This is truly Kindness in Action!  To read about them click HERE
