Sigur Rós have donated $5.000 USD to a GoFundMe campaign started by a family in Kansas City who want to fulfil their child Pippa’s dream of visiting Iceland, reports DV.

Seven year old Pippa suffered a stroke after birth which caused Cerebral Palsy and she also lives with LGS, a rare form of epilepsy that causes numerous types of seizures that are very difficult to control.

This however, has had no effect on her taste in music, which is quite excellent. After attending a Sigur Rós concert in Kansas last year Pippa became obsessed with the band and all things Iceland.

After a difficult hip surgery, Heima, a documentary, which follows Sigur Rós playing concerts in various venues across Iceland, helped Pippa in her recovery.

Upon hearing the story, Sigur Rós donated $5.000 USD to the campaign and overall at time of writing the Brown Hull family had raised just shy of $17.000 USD of the $25.000 USD goal.

UPDATE: According to a post on the Pippa’s Wish GoFundMe Page, the family has reportedly reached their goal of collecting $25.000 for the trip. Congratulations, guys! Hope you have a wonderful time in Iceland!
