As July 10 marked the one month anniversary of Christina Grimmie’s death, The Voice singer’s family is planning to end its GoFundMe campaign next week and has posted a note thanking fans and donors.
“The outpouring of love and generosity that has been displayed to our family throughout these last few weeks has far exceeded anything we could have ever imagined. As we have always known, Christina’s life was so very special, not only to us, but to everyone she touched with her joyful heart, beautiful voice and love for life and the Lord. Words cannot express what the many memorials, donations and tributes shared by Christina’s fans and those in the media and entertainment industry mean to us. She will live on in our hearts forever. We will take our time in determining the best ways to honor Christina moving forward. Thank you.” – Bud, Tina and Marcus Grimmie
Christina was shot dead in Orlando during a meet-and-greet following a concert. So far, the Grimmie Family’s fundraiser has collected nearly $196,000 from 8,000 people since its launch on June 11. The campaign was started by Christina’s management team to help support the family as they grieved her death.
