My name is Elly Evans and I am the CEO of the Kristy Lane Foundation. After my mom Kristy passed away in September of 2007, I have always felt the need to help other kids that have experienced a loss like mine.
So in January of 2013 I started this foundation to help grieving kids, learn and cope with what they're experiencing, by directing them to different groups and camps that are run by certified counselors.
START SOMETHING AND BECOME SOMEONE'S LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
Our mission is to help grieving kids find the light in their darkness.
We help kids in three ways:
Bringing awareness and funding to grief support groups (ex: Starfish, Judie's House, Heartlight)
Donating money to Camp Comfort
We are setting up a college scholarship for high school seniors who have lost a parent
