Granger Smith And Wife Amber Launch River Kelly Fund In Late Son's Memory

Granger Smith and his wife Amber lost their three year old son, River in June of 2019 after a tragic drowning accident. Months later, the family has announced their plans to continue to honor his memory through the launch of the River Kelly Fund.

The goal of the River Kelly Fund is to provide financial support to causes and charities close to the family's heart, including arts and education, wildlife preservation, first responders and more while honoring River's legacy.

"Most of you know, our precious River went to heaven in June 2019. Since his passing, we knew we wanted to keep spreading his big legacy, light and joy across the world by helping others in need. Today, we have heavy, but hopeful, hearts as we share @theriverkellyfund with you," Amber captioned a photo of the logo that features a heart and the phrase "Live Like Riv."

She continues, "Through this fund, we will help other charitable organizations close to our hearts in honor of our son. By donating to the River Kelly Fund, you are not only spreading joy, but also transforming lives for the better. We have one life to live and we hope to live it with purpose, gratitude and compassion."

The Smith's have made it their mission to give back to others following River's death. Granger and Amber made the decision to donate River's organs, which helped save the lives of two adults. Additionally, the family donated over $218,000 to Dell Children's Medical Center in Austin where their son was treated after the accident.

Granger and Amber are also the parents to 8-year-old daughter, London and 5-year-old son, Lincoln.
