Friends of Shad Gaspard have set up a GoFundMe with the money going to Gaspard's wife and son.
Gaspard, 39, passed away this week after being pulled under by a rip current in Venice Beach. Gaspard died a hero, directing lifeguards to save his 10-year-old son first.
From the GoFundMe:
As many of you have heard on Sunday (May 17th) tragedy hit as Shad Gaspard went swimming with his son Aryeh - when they got caught in a riptide. When the lifeguards went to rescue them, Shad made the ultimate sacrifice and told them to save his son instead.
Family meant everything to Shad so we want to do anything we can to love and support them during this difficult time.
Shad's friends are coming together to set up this GoFundMe to help his wife Siliana cover bills/expenses, Aryeh’s future college fund and we invite you to please join us.
Every little bit helps.
Your love and support is greatly appreciated!
