Granger Smith Tribute To Son Raises Over $80k!
Mourning the loss of his 3-year old son, Granger Smith had a t-shirt designed in his memory and to raise money for a special cause.
Earlier this month, Granger delivered the unthinkable news of losing his young son, River in a tragic accident at the families home. Doctors tried to revive the toddler without success.
As a tribute to River, a t-shirt was designed through Smiths Yee Yee Apparel line. So far it has raised over $88,000!
From people.com, the family gave a description of the shirt and an update:
“This shirt has a Yee Yee Excavator on it (Riv’s favorite thing to do was watch excavators scoop up dirt) and is red – Riv’s favorite color,” the description reads.
“River was Amber and Granger Smith’s youngest son who tragically passed away on June 6, 2019. He was cared for by the wonderful staff at Dell Children’s before he passed away. Dell Children’s is the only dedicated freestanding pediatric facility in Central Texas and serves 46 counties and then some,” the statement continues.
“We feel like it’s only right to give something back to the people who were so good to the Granger Smith family,” it added.
In addition, the Smiths, who are also parents to son Lincoln, 5, and daughter London, 7, provided an update on the fundraising efforts, which continue to grow. “Current Donations Raised for Dell Children’s Medical Center: $88,088,” the update stated.
