Granger Smith’s Raises Almost $100,000 For Children’s Hospital With River Tribute Shirt

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.”

I have to deliver unthinkable news. We’ve lost our youngest son, River Kelly Smith. Following a tragic accident, and despite doctor’s best efforts, he was unable to be revived. Amber and I made the decision to say our last goodbyes and donate his organs so that other children will be given a second chance at life. Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father. Riv was special. Everyone that met him knew that immediately. The joy he brought to our lives cannot be expressed and his light will be forever in our hearts. If there are words to say more, I cannot find them in this moment. Love the ones close to you. There has never been a more difficult moment for us than this. . . In lieu of flowers or gifts, please send donations to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name. The doctors, nurses and staff have been incredible.
