Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin with Darnell ChildrenStephen Moyer and Anna Paquin Support the Darnell Family

Newlyweds Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) and Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) recently lent a hand to a local family touched by tragedy.  The Darnell Family lost father Kirk suddenly at the beginning of the year. He had no life insurance and he left behind 5 kids and his wife Missi.  Eight months later Missi and her daughter Genevieve were hit by a car and killed.  This left the remaining Darnell children parentless and now tragically missing a sister.  Moyer and Paquin proved their class, and truly the size of their hearts because:

“When Moyer heard the story from a neighbor, he decided to pitch in. Along with Paquin, they donated items for a silent auction that took place during The Darnell Family Fundraiser in Venice, California on October 10. And they showed up to offer their support in person as well.”

How generous is that?  Some of these items went up for bid on Ebay and drew an amazing number of bids.  One such item was a script from True Blood that had been autographed by Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alan Ball.  The script was from Season 3, Episode 12.

Their kindness and generosity is truly inspiring and as Trubies we can still get in on the action of helping this family.  You can find information and ways to help on the Darnell Family’s facebook.
