Father of 6 is a victim in San Bernardino shooting — Find Out How You Can Donate To His Grieving Family

Screen Shot 2015-12-03 at 3.34.12 PMYesterday morning I read a post on a private Facebook group I’m a part of which is moderated by the lilmamas.com’s, Celia Behar. We call ourselves, “Mamas” and we support each other in all things motherhood. Yesterday a very serious post was made by Renee Wetzel asking all of us Mamas for our support and prayers:

 “Please pray. My husband was in a meeting and a shooter came in. There are multiple people dead/shot. I can’t get a hold of him.”

Eight hours later Celia reported to the concerned group of Mamas the very tragic news that Renee had lost her dear husband at the San Bernardino Massacre yesterday. He was a husband and father of six children.

Celia Behar quickly jumped into action and organized a fundraiser this morning for the family on the YouCaring site.  This is what Celia wrote. To donate click here.

“We are heartbroken for the Wetzel Family and determined to help our Mama Renee in anyway that we can. Michael leaves behind 6 children and his family will need all the support we can give them. Please. Help us help them. Every little bit counts and will go directly to the Wetzel Family. You have our word.”

The crowdfunding goal is currently set at $50,000, and the campaign has already raised over $45,000. If you would like to donate to the Wetzel family, click here.”

I’ve never met Renee, but as a mother I know her as any mother knows the struggles and joys of motherhood. I send her my support, love and prayers.
