The Fluttercoin community heard about the news and reached out to Mkhzaz to be able to make donations in Fluttercoin. News reached the Bitcoin, the Karmacoin and the Reddcoin community, and now the family is receiving donations from multiple communities. The fundraiser took a setback when the Dogevault was attacked, and funds were lost. The fundraiser was setback to square one after the attack, but the Dogecoin community responded with more generosity and more donations. This campaign has brought together several cryptocurrency communities to unite to support a worthy cause.
The campaign has been seen on numerous Twitter feeds with the official by #prayforpeyton in its message to the community.

Mkhaz has worked with several members of cryptocurrency communities to create official donation addresses that will help raise funds for the family.
This cross-cryptocurrency fundraiser goes to show that cryptocurrency communities that consider each other rivals can come together to unite to support a common goal. Peyton’s supporters have launched multiple sites to help raise funds for Peyton. Through cryptocurrencies, the campaign has achieved a massive boost to the publicity. The Dogecoin community is known for their ability to unite and support charity. Cryptocurrencies like Reddcoin are built for tipping, and the community has already donated generously despite the Reddcoin address just being setup for use this morning.
The family said the following about the campaign on the description of their Youtube video:
I understand that a lot of you may not know us, and you never yet gotten to meet the beautiful girl that we all love so dearly, but if you could find it in your heart to help our family. Prayers and donations appreciated more than you know. Our goal is to raise as many funds as humanly possible to alleviate any stress our mother and father are going through and will have to go through. Our family would like to be able to be near my sister, living in a different city and placing our jobs on hold, this will become more difficult by the day. Whatever you feel appropriate in doing for our family, your love and support would mean the world to all of us, especially Peyton.
The Financial stress of something like this is incredibly tough for any family. Donations help them with medical expenses to make sure Peyton is receiving all of the care she can get and help the family with bills as they cannot work their jobs at the moment.
Donations to help the family can be made at many places.
