What Would Bri Do is dedicated to helping families cope with their loss and to support them on their grief journey.
What Would Bri Do, Inc. is a non-profit that’s mission is to help individuals cope with loss, support their healing, and nurture their physical and emotional well-being.
Randy and Tami Kruzel formed WWBD after their daughter, BriAnna Rose Kruzel, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 18 on September 28, 2013 of unknown causes. Throughout BriAnna’s short life she passionately volunteered and gave back to her community. After she passed away her family knew that they wanted to continue her legacy of giving.
This year the non-profit is changing its focus to help individuals through their grieving journey. They will be working on establishing resources to help individuals cope with loss, support their healing, and nurture their physical and emotional well-being. As Randy and Tami have learned trough grief emerges a new person.
In 2016, WWBD placed an Angel of Hope on Lake Francis in Sartell for children that passed away too soon. Randy and Tami intended to place the angel in memory of BriAnna but throughout the planning process they found many others in Central Minnesota that needed a place to honor their child who is forever loved and missed.
In 2013, WWBD, was formed with the purpose of supporting people and organizations in need. Since established they have been able to award approximately $32,000 to wonderful organizations and individuals in need. They donated sound systems to both the Community Education Dance Program and the local Girl Scout Unit. High School scholarships were awarded to both the Sartell High School and Big Brothers Big Sisters in BriAnna’s memory. Many other donations were made to others within the community and surrounding areas.
