Love God. Love People. 

The Brady Kinder Foundation was established in memory of Brady Kinder, the 4 year old son of Robert and Amanda Kinder who suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in his sleep on May 10, 2015. 

Instead of allowing this tragic loss to destroy them, Robert and Amanda determined to live everyday with the same drive that made Brady such a special boy. He never had a bad day, and he truly loved anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Brady is the heartbeat of this Foundation, and the motivation that drives us to help as many children as we possibly can. With your help, we will touch thousands of lives in memory of Brady, and that impact that will last beyond our lifetimes.
