Mission Statement

“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” Kathy Calvin

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.

Thank You

Mum, Dad Charlie, Matilda, Molly, and Oscar (twin brother of Lachlan)

You can't put your arms around a memory, but you can grasp it with your mind, clutch it with your soul and keep it sacred in your heart forever. Unknown

"Love is not patronizing, and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead."
― Mother Teresa

    "New Beginnings"

    Dear Friends,

    If things are getting too much for you or you cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. This song may help you get through these times.

    “It is only in our darkest hours that we may discover the true strength of the brilliant light within ourselves that can never, ever, be dimmed.”
    – Doe Zantamata

    Today was a tough day for me and this song helped me. I hope it can do the same for you when you need it.

    THANK YOU.

    I am sorry it has taken a while for an update. We truly appreciate all the kindness shown to us since Lachlan's passing.

    The world has changed even more since COVID, and we hope that everyone is staying safe and well during these challenging times.

    You have helped raise $43,740.00 at the time of this update. THANK YOU.
    It is a tremendous effort, and your donations will count to help others less fortunate.

    We chose Charity Water not just because of the great work they do but because we will all go on a journey together. Charity Water will be providing updates during construction, and we will see the finished wells and get to see the people's lives we will transform. It is an opportunity to engage your friends and family and be proud of your philanthropy. You are not just donating but building something that will live on for years.

    We are pushing on to $50,000.00 and beyond and ask if you can share, tweet, Facebook, email to those who are interested in joining you on this journey it would be appreciated.

    For those who have donated, many corporations and businesses offer matching donations. I have provided all the details required for your departments and programs to match your generous contribution to Lachlan's name. We may even be able to raise $100,000.00 with matching corporate contributions.

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.
