Fundraiser seeks to help pay for travel for Kristin Smart’s family as trial nears

Kristin Smart disappeared in the 1970s. Her alleged killer and father are on trial next month. Supporters and friends are supporting her family.

When the trial of Ruben Flores and Paul Smart begins in June, the Smart family will have to travel a lot. To help them with the burden, a GoFundMe was created.The trial could go on into September.

Called the 26/26 campaign — May 26 marks the 26th anniversary of Smart’s disappearance — the effort wants to collect $20,000 for the family, though as organizer Dave Congalton notes, donors are encouraged to give “any amount of money you can.”

“We’re asking for $20,000, but wouldn’t it be sweet if we hit $26,000?”Congalton wrote.
