On April 15, 2015, tragedy struck the Anne of Green Gables family. Actor Jonathan Crombie, known for his role as the beloved Gilbert Blythe, passed away. If you are interested, here is the blog post I wrote following the news of his death: Don’t Forget Me
A member of the AOGG fandom, Sandra McKinney, has started a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of putting some kind of memorial in David Crombie Park. The Toronto park is named after Jonathan’s father, and Sandra felt it was the perfect place for a memorial. She has talked to the proper authorities, and the idea has been accepted. If there is any money left over from the donations, it will be given to a charity of the Crombie family’s choosing. Donate if you are able to do so, but don’t feel like you have to. At the very least, share the page on social media and help spread the word. Sandra’s efforts speak volumes on behalf of the AOGG community, and I want to do my part to help.
• GoFundMe Page – https://www.gofundme.com/2mbc344k
• Facebook Group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/970383573006872/
In the words of Sandra, “If you like this idea and would be willing to help so that this can happen please donate whatever you can. Let’s make this fundraising campaign a success and let’s keep Jonathan’s memory alive for our generation and generations to come.”
