Buckwild Star Shain Gandee’s Death: How to Donate to His Family and Friends

Buckwild star Shain Gandee, his uncle David Gandee, and their friend Robert Myers all died tragically from carbon monoxide poisoning yesterday, and as their families mourn, they face another hurdle: funding the funerals.

Shain’s family in particular is struggling to afford a proper burial for their 21-year-old son’s funeral services, and his cousin Ashley is spearheading a special off-roading event in his honor to help raise funds this Wednesday in Proctorville, Ohio. Supporters can meet in the Krogers parking lot at 4:30 p.m. ET and will be selling 30 T-shirts for $15 before they “hit the mud” for an hour.

"I know the strain they are going through," Ashley told TMZ. "It's hard to provide a proper burial. It's already tough with the loss of family members ... expenses are tough as well."

However, if you aren’t close to Ohio, she took to her store’s Facebook (Gandee’s General Store) to provide a few other options to donate.

Earlier today, she posted, “If anyone would like to donate money to help his family pay for funeral expenses and bills, please send all donations via PayPal to, mail to 24866 St Rt 7S, Crown City, OH 45623, or please stop by the store.”

If none of those options are applicable, feel free to reach out to Ashley on Facebook with your love and support. Our thoughts go out to all of the families during this difficult time.
