In response to the awful tragedy that Granger Smith and his family are suffering through, Granger’s Yee Yee Apparel created a tribute shirt to honor their late son River, and raise money for the hospital that treated him.

As of right now, they have raised $96,334 for Dell Children’s Medical Center, in Austin, Texas.

According to the website:

100% of the proceeds from this shirt will go to Dell Childrens Medical Center in honor of River Kelly Smith. 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 Childrens before he passed away. Dell Childrens is the only dedicated freestanding pediatric facility in Central Texas and serves 46 counties and then some. We feel like it’s only right to give something back to the people who were so good to the Granger Smith family. 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.

At the time of the accident, the Smith family also asked those willing to help to “please send donations to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name. The doctors, nurses and staff have been incredible.”
