When Erica and Andrew's neighbor verbally threatened them and then vandalized their home, they realized they needed to take steps to secure their home. Their friend Kelly Alice Robinson set up a FreeFunder campaign with a goal of $2,000 to cover the costs of the security system.
This was the fastest fundraiser to reach its goal so far on FreeFunder - in less than 15 hours they reached the $2,000 goal. Within 2 days they had more than doubled it, and ended the campaign after only 2 days because they did not need more money! In those 2 days they raised $4,090.
"It is hard to find the right words to express the gratitude we're feeling right now.

We don't even know how to let it all in. We are completely stunned." - Erica and Andrew
