First, I would like to thank Elliot for giving me this platform to discuss an issue that has recently hit very close to home in the Domainer world.
My dear friend, Matthew Berrier, used to work for me at DNS.com (located in Louisville, KY) until he left to start his own domain brokerage firm. He has spent the past year building his fledgling business and has working day and night to support his family. Matthew had even begun teaching his daughter, Brianna Berrier, about domains – so much so that she had acquired some names of her own and had even started her own business.
Tragically, on April the 12th, Brianna passed away. She was 13 years old.
With her passing, they are left with an infant child and 12 year old boy with a single family income.
Along with the emotional burden they now carry, they’ve also been dealt a massive financial blow. I spoke with Matthew and the cost of the funeral, arrangements, and everything else is going to exceed $15,000. Currently they are in need of funds to help bury their little girl.
If you are able to make a donation of any size it would mean the world to Matthew and his family. BriannaBerrier.com has been setup as a memorial site and also as a way to take donations.
You can make a direct PayPal donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and please visit the site BriannaBerrier.com to leave an inspiring comment to the family showing your support. You can also keep up with the donation amount at BriannaBerrier.com/make-a-donation/.
Even if you cannot donate, leaving a kind word on the website would mean the world to them. Thank you for kind consideration. It is truly appreciated.
