On Christmas afternoon, Livermore Police responded to a local hotel in response to a 39-year-old woman suffering a medical emergency related to a pre-existing condition. She was transported to a hospital where she later died.

Karma was temporarily placed with a foster family until her grandmother could get to California from Florida. During this time, police and firefighters learned that Karma was unable to celebrate Christmas due to her mother’s medical condition beginning in the early morning hours of Christmas.

So, they went and purchased gifts for Karma so she could experience Christmas. On Dec. 26, they delivered them to her.

Police and firefighters started a GoFundMe account to raise money to assist Karma and her family. You can donate here.
