In Loving Memory of Lachlan Hugh Schieb 12/18/18- 2/27/20
It is with an unfathomable sadness that we tell you of the sudden passing of our beautiful boy Lachlan Hugh Schieb. We are all devastated by his passing, and our worlds are forever changed.
Lachlan was such a happy child and melted the hearts of everyone that he and his brother Oscar met. They were double trouble in the best way. Being an identical twin, we cannot comprehend what Oscar has also lost.
Lachlan was our little hero, and he became a hero to another family by giving their child the gift of life with his heart valves. The kindest gift he could have given another family with his passing. We have been updated and told his organs are continuing to save the lives of others.
Though Lachlan is gone, he will never be forgotten, and in Lachlan's name, we hope you can join us by helping others. Instead of flowers and other gifts, we hope that you can help others by donating and helping to save the lives of others.
Your donation will go into sponsoring a specific project or projects that we will nominate at the closure of this campaign.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they're complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
If you can, please donate to the Lachlan Hugh Schieb Philanthropic Memorial Fund -- anything you can give will help make the world a better place in Lachlan's name.
If your workplace offers a matching donation, please let us know in the comments section.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
