Support Kaylie's Candlelight Vigil for Victims of Dangerous Dogs by helping the family raise the initial funds to buy bulk t-shirts and candles for the event.Sacramento, CA June 24, 2013 -- The family of a 3-year old girl mauled by a pit bull last July launches a fundraising campaign to help raise money for an upcoming vigil event. On Saturday October 26, Kaylie's Candlelight Vigil for Victims of Dangerous Dogs takes place in Sacramento on the steps of the state capitol building. In preparation for the vigil, the family launched a campaign on indiegogo.com to help raise the initial funds to buy bulk t-shirts and candles. Once those costs are covered, remaining funds will be donated to DogsBite.org.Kaylie's family, the Bakers, was unaware of how serious and widespread this problem was until their own child was attacked by a pit bull. The candlelight vigil being held in October has several goals. The family wishes to honor and remember the victims and their families -- both human and animal; to increase awareness of the growing frequency of these attacks; and to raise donations for DogsBite.org, an organization that has been a "source of strength and support for the Bakers and for so many other families," states the campaign web page.
