Pro skier, Michelle Parker was more than shocked when the news of Sarah Burke’s injury hit. When word spread about her untimely passing, she was devastated, but knew there must be something she could to help her memory live off. Fueled by emotion, she joined forces with Shreddy Times and Sticker Pack to help raise funds for Sarah’s enormous medical bills.
Together, the trio created “Believe In Sarah” and “Remember Sarah” stickers and made them available to the masses. Little did they know how big their project would become. After only two weeks, they’ve mailed over 2,700 stickers to 16 countries, to over 1,000 people, and have raised close to $15,000
Check out this touching video of the crew at work dedicating their time and efforts to raising funds for the family of the fallen freeski star.
Words: Michelle Parker
Sarah was a true pioneer for this sport that I am so incredibly passionate about. I owe a lot to her as she helped pave the way for so many more and me. Who knows if I would have had all of these amazing opportunities if it weren’t for Sarah. She was driven, enthusiastic, strong willed, a hard worker, and my hero.
In memory of Sarah and as a small thanks to how she has inspired me I came up with an idea to sell stickers to help raise money for her fund. Sticker Pack has generously donated thousands of stickers. Kaya Turski created the sticker design. ALL of the proceeds made from these stickers will go to Sarah’s outstanding medical costs and related expenses through her husband, Rory Bushfield.
With the momentum that we have gained from the release of Danny’s movie and the similarities of Sarah’s injury to Danny’s, Shreddy Times has been kind enough to set up an online store. Each sticker cost $5.00. The price of the envelope and stamp comes to 47 cents. Each sticker bought will donate $4.53 to Sarah’s fund.
Thank you very much for your generous donation. My thoughts are continuously with Rory and Sarah’s family.
