  • About the event

    With the growing epidemic of drug overdoses ending in deaths in the state of Maine, the Daniel Michaud Foundation is a foundation whos mission is to help children that lose a parent to death. The founder Elizabeth Pagan, is a mom whos had countless conversations with her fiance Daniel Michaud about helpping the children that are becoming  parentless because of the epidemic on  drugs. In January of 2017, Elizabethand her children lost Daniel Michaud. He passed away of a heart attack at age 31. watching her own children suffer from the loss has driven her on her own mission to help all children who lose a parent. Her goal is to create an enviornment for these children to be taught coping skills that will teach them how to be mentally strong, pay for them to learn a talent that will teach them discipline and give them confidence. No kid should feel alone after the loss of a parent and the Daniel Michaud Foundation wants to make sure every kid that suffers a loss, learns how to live. 

    Why should you sponsor?

    The importance of our future lays in our children. Who they become as adults is a combination of what they learn and the foundation that is set before them while growing up. The Daniel Michaud Foundation wants to teach children how to be strong leaders, self motivators and to put education first in spite of their tragic loss. The publics support to make this happen is needed. 

    Elizabeth Pagan

    My name is Elizabeth Pagan. I'm a hard working mother with four children. My core values lay in working hard for my family and always doing the right thing. This January my life changed when I came home from work to find out my fiance had a heart attack and died. Helping my children come to acceptance and teaching them to cope has been a challenge in my household. I've set myself to reach out to any organizations that could help me help them. I found one. Then I found out that there wasn't any counciling for my kids there. It was just a social gathering for children who were grieving any death. I feel like chilldren who are grieving the death of a parent should have a place of their own. A place where they can talk to a mentor, councilor or even another child who's going through the same thing. These children need special attention to learn how to survive and keeping going. Unfortunately, I can't do this alone. That is why I'm creating this foundation in honor of my fiance for the children.
