An online fundraiser has been set up to raise money for the funeral of a three-year-old boy who died after being found without vital signs in the bitter cold.

Elijah Marsh wandered from an apartment building near Allen Road and Highway 401 around 4 a.m. on Thursday.

He was found tucked in a corner behind a house around 10 a.m., about six hours after he was captured on the building’s surveillance footage, leaving on his own.

The fundraiser, which is set up through Tilt.com, is looking to raise $20,000 for his funeral. It’s currently at $14,232.

Justin Kozuch, the creator of the fundraiser, told 680News he is trying to get in contact with Elijah’s family.

“I am working with a few individuals to make contact with them, and figure out how we can provide them or give them the money that we’ve raised in a way that is respectful,” Kozuch said. Tilt.com has waived credit card fees for all contributors.

The campaign hasn’t been sanctioned by Elijah’s family.

    I am so very very sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you are going through so I won’t say I know how you feel. I wish I could do something to help you, to help ease your pain. He is with God now and he is safe and warm and looking down on you. I hope that you can know peace in your heart and life. Again I am so very sorry for the loss of your son Elijah.

    To the family of Elijah My heart bleeds me as a mother to see such a beautiful innocent baby leave this world, it feels like I lost my own child I cried from the day he past until now. I have a set of twins five year old boys it feels like I lost one of my twins boys because he has the same name as Elijah. Elijah you will always be in my heart there will be no day past by I wouldn’t think of you may your innocent soul rest in peace God has you where he was you Elijah.
    LOVE ALWAYS.
