Rachel’s Birthday Wish continues to grow

Rachel Beckwith, an Issaquah girl who died shortly after her 9th birthday after being involved in a multi-car accident on Interstate 90 last Wednesday, has a legacy that continues to grow.

The little girl, who died of spinal cord and head trauma injuries at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Saturday, had a birthday wish. Instead of birthday presents, she asked friends and family to donate $9 towards clean water projects.

Rachel’s goal was to raise $300 on her birthday. Upon hearing of her death, the donations have literally poured in to honor her and at this writing over $150,000 has been donated with 2,902 separate donations.
