Jerry Collins Memorial Fund
This project has reached its target. You may still donate to this project if you wish.
We lost All Black legend Jerry Collins and his daughter Ayla lost both her parents. This fund is in his honour and for her future.
All Black legend Jerry Collins and his partner Alana were killed in a car crash in France. They leave behind an infant daughter fighting for her tiny life, New Zealand mourning his memory, and a global rugby community in pain.
Any proceeds raised will be put into a trust for Ayla for whatever she might need in life as she grows up.
Jerry was only 34.
Life is fragile. Let's all be good to each other.
Donate whatever you are moved to or choose $1002 or $48 to mark his All Black # and number of tests he played.
Aera Foundation's involvement (page creator)
I have no personal connection to Jerry Collins or his family. I am, like most New Zealanders, a passionate All Blacks fan and loved watching Jerry play both for the Hurricanes and our country.
The idea of Ayla growing up without both her parents immediately made me want to do something to inspire New Zealanders and rugby fans around the world to rally in some small way.
I set up the Aera Foundation to create a brighter future for our world.
Aera is a charitable trust established for the betterment of New Zealand and to advance new global models fusing social and financial goals.
Aera was founded by Kiwi entrepreneur Derek Handley.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this campaign and shared it with your communities. As we near the closing date, it is time to prepare for the transfer of the funds raised for baby Ayla into a trust fund for her future.
The Aera Foundation has appointed the Public Trust to set up a trust fund for Ayla's benefit - for her health, welfare and future, including her medical costs and education. The fund will be managed by the Public Trust, including the terms of access.
Thanks to all for taking part in the campaign,
