After losing BriAnna, Tami, Randy and the boys decided that they wanted to do an ice cream social for Bri's birthday and raised approximately $13,000. The non-profit was then founded in November of 2014. Tami channeled her grief into making sure that BriAnna's gift of giving continued on and through the years the non-profit has awarded approximately $50,000 to individuals and organizations in need. Tami is determined to make sure those traveling the grief journey will not travel it alone.
