As a community we must band together to assist this family in their efforts to locate Marshal.
The funds raised will be used for the following:
- Hiring a private investigator to assist in locating footage and other relevant clues for location Marshal. This will be the most significant cost the family will have.
-Travel/gas/accommodations; as you May or may not know, Marshal’s sister does not live in Canada. She is now in Canada to help look for her brother with her family.
-Conducting further searches for Marshal, Including drone searches/purchase of drones. The police have exhausted their resources for search and rescue so now the family is financially responsible for further searches conducted.
- Advertising/posters/billboards: as mentioned on their Facebook page, along with digital and traditional postering efforts some families might also create magnetic posters (for vehicles); make use of traditional and digital billboards; or place ads in traditional print papers and social media. Sometimes families can get reduced or donated goods for at least a limited time. When they cannot, the costs can quickly rise into the thousands of dollars.
-Candlelit Vigils and other public awareness events; each of these events have costs associated with the event.
In the event there are remaining funds, the family will be donating them to an organization of their choice.
