Ammaria Johnson Fund - Important Details

As many of you may already know, Ammaria Johnson passed away from an allergic reaction to a peanut product, while at her school.  She was only 7 years old.  This is a terrible tragedy, and to make matters worse, her mother, Laura Pendleton, is now faced with the expense of burying her child.  No mother expects to have to bury their child and Laura was not prepared, emotionally or financially, for her daughter's untimely death.

An account has been set up at Wells Fargo, if anyone would like to make a contribution to Ammaria's funeral expenses.  This must be an unimaginably painful time for Ammaria's mother and family, so let's do what we can to ease their burden, even if it's only with a small monetary donation.  Let us stand together with a fellow food-allergy mother and show her our support.

Thanks to The Allergic Kid, for this information on making a donation to the fund:
  • Go to any Wells Fargo branch and fill out a counter deposit slip for Laura Pendleton, Chesterfield, VA, and whatever amount you would like to donate.
  • From this information the teller will be able to look her up on the computer.  Let the teller know, either verbally or by writing on the deposit slip, that the account it should go into is the "Ammaria Johnson Fund".
  • The teller WILL NOT be able to give you the account number, but will fill it in on the deposit slip and give you a receipt.
Let's do what little we can to help this grieving mother, so she's not further burdened by this sad, untimely loss.

ETA: I went to make my contribution, today, and they had a little bit of trouble finding the fund.  They finally located it and I asked if there was anything I could share with others to make it easier to find and they said contributors could reference the last 4 numbers of the account, to help in their search.  My receipt shows Account Number XXXXXX1834.

Also, to make it even easier for you, here is the link to the Wells Fargo branch locator.


  1. Thanks so much for the account number, it was sooo helpful.
    I live in Dallas Texas, and have a little girl with food allergies. It just broke my heart to hear about Little Miss Amarria. We really need to get the word out that Food Allergies can kill. Last spring the state of Texas has just passed a bill to have Texas school guidelines for all public schools!!! We need it to be every state. May you rest in peace our angel Amarria!!!

  2. I live near San Antonio, TX and I was very glad that bill passed! We need guidelines everywhere that someone is caring for a child with food allergies!
