Mike Coyle read off the latest contributories on Tuesday from the ten dollar miracle account for Sarah and Rebecca Gaunt.

"It just keeps growing and growing and growing,” said Coyle.

Since our story ran last week, he says donations have been flying in with people wanting to help.  We talked with one of the twins, Sarah, over the phone.

"It's just been amazing how many people have gotten on the Facebook page and donated so much money.  Just the support we've gotten from everyone, has been amazing,” said Gaunt.

Coyle's original goal was $16,000, enough for the first semester for both girls.

In just a few days they raised more than $21,000 through the Facebook page and Sarah says she's relieved.

"A lot of stress has been relieved from this.  We were worried a lot of not be able to afford college because of the loans being taken away,” said Gaunt.

Coyle says he wants to take care of the girls as long as possible and hopes to get enough to pay for a second semester.

 Sarah says she and her sister can't thank everyone enough.

"Thank you. I mean thank you is not enough at all.  Everyone has just done so much.  We're just really grateful and it's a blessing,” said Gaunt.

She says even though her mother and stepfather aren't here she's the donated money is helping her get ready for Radford.

"It's going to help a lot to do the things we were going to do prior to the accident and be able to move forward.  That's what my parents would have wanted me to do,” said Gaunt.
