A little girl’s birthday wish has come true past the limits anyone thought was imaginable – but tragically, her dream was realized only after her death.

Last week in Bellevue, Washington, 9-year-old Rachel Beckwith was killed in a 13-car pileup on I-90. She, her mother, and her 2-year-old sister were approaching the 133rd Avenue Southeast exit when authorities believe a tractor-trailer was not able to stop for slowing traffic. The big rig jackknifed and a logging truck slammed in to the vehicle. Eleven other cars were unable to avoid the collision, and Beckwith suffered fatal spinal and head injuries.

Last month, for Rachel’s ninth birthday, she set up a donation page in lieu of gifts. Her goal was to raise $300 for those who are regularly without clean water, but she only raised $220. After her car accident, her mother re-opened her donation page, and people from around the world began to give. In the last two weeks, her memory has raised almost one million dollars collected from tens of thousands of mourners. On I-90, a polka dot cross marks the spot of the crash.

What can Rachel’s story teach us? At the most basic level, it is a tale about unselfish giving – and lesson taught by a wise little girl who was taken long before her time.
