The Yoder's are an incredible family for many reasons. First of all they are a huge family and all come from Amish roots so they all have a strong family bond, lots of love, moral and they know how to work hard, veg out and have fun. They also have overcome great tragedy as a family. When the Yoder kids were still in their youth they lost their father in a drunk driving accident. Most the children were in the car during the accident! John Yoder was only 5 when he lost his father, Andrew Yoder was 8, Mary Elizabeth was 11, Barbie 14, Hugh 16, Todd 19 and Eugene 22. It was a huge loss for this family but they live life to the fullest because of this. Mary Elizabeth started The Arnold C Yoder Survivors foundation to Elevate Hope and Give Renewed Support for the Grieving". The Yoder's are not defined by their loss but the wonderful lives they have created with their families. Carrie

I have known of The ACY and the stories for a number of years now and I also know how important the work is that the foundation is involved with. I have donated art to the foundation because it is a non profit organisation and being no n profit, can be a difficult task indeed. The stories I have been told about the children who have been struck down so early in their lives is heartbreaking. The support that ACY provides is nothing short of amazing and they have my continued support.
