Please Donate for slain Nephew of Fellow Herper in Conn.

Post by Fundad » December 17th, 2012, 6:22 pm

As we all know Friday was a tragic day for the children, staff, and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School.

One of those innocent children was the nephew of a fellow herper..

PLEASE, give anything you can.

From Herp Nation

"We at Herp Nation were deeply saddened to learn that the nephew of Carl Barden (Medtoxin Venom Lab), Daniel Barden, was among those slain at Sandy Hook Elementary School last week. Daniel was six years old. In an excerpt from a family statement, “He embodied everything that is wholesome and innocent in the world.”
We ask that you give generously to assist his family in their time of need.
Herp Nation offers our sincerest condolences to Carl and his family.
GO HERE TO DONATE: http://www.BardenFund.com "


I am challenging all of the California board members to match my $20 donation, and I asking our chapter members to reach out as well.

There is no way we can imagine what poor Daniel went through on this horrible day..

Fundad- I matched your donation.

Can't imagine this happening at my kid's school or to a family member/ friend. Please donate if it's within your means.

Thanks for posting this Brian.

As an elementary school teacher and father of two, I am appreciative of the opportunity to help out in any way I can. Donation matched.

My condolences to all the affected families.

Thank You John.. Very Sad, and it brings tears to my eyes to even think about what the Teachers, staff, and students went
through during those moments. Not to mention what the parents went through upon hearing the news, and again what they
went through if their worst fears were realized. As a father my heart pours out to all of those families and children.

And thank you to everyone that has given from their heart.


I have to say, I continue to be proud of and impressed by the people we have here in the California Chapter..

I am truly saddened by what happened and I give my condolences to the family.
I couldn't imagine what I would do if this happened to my kids.

This is a link off the article BlackPearl posted with a video and the family talking a bit more about Daniel Barden.
