"FRIEND OF KAILA" FOUNDATION
THANKS FOR MAKING "EASTER PARTY IN THE PARK" A SUCCESS!
OUR STORY On the afternoon of Saturday, August 12, 2017 Dillon and Brittany Washington arrived at the Chandler Regional Hospital in Arizona with joyful expectation of bringing their second child “Kaila Janiece Washington” into the world. Kaila’s birth was highly anticipated in the Washington Family because she would be the first granddaughter of Bishops Ben & Norma Washington; who up to now had only been blessed with six grandsons. Unfortunately, after examination they would hear the dreaded words that many parents have had to endure but never should… “we can’t find a heartbeat”. Our beautiful “Kaila” was stillborn…
The Washington Family experienced a tragedy that will forever change our lives but have decided to make a way for the loss of our “Kaila” to have a lasting impact in this life! OUR MISSION
As we journey through the grieving process the Washington Family along with Walk By Faith Empowerment Center (Church) have established the A FRIEND OF "KAILA" FOUNDATION with the mission of "TURNING LOSS INTO LOVE" by blessing underprivileged children with all the things we would have done or planned to do with or for our “Kaila”. We also seek to financially assist other families with unexpected burial expenses as well as spiritual counseling during their time of grief because each of their precious babies are "a friend of Kaila" in heaven. OUR PLANS …Christmas Gift Giving for children. …Easter/Resurrection Sunday Clothing & Baskets …Sponsoring Trips, Outings & Tickets to Events …Kaila Friend's Birthday Party (August 12th) ...Back to School Celebration & Supplies
Please know that your help in any amount is greatly appreciated and we are thankful for your help in ..."turning loss into love"!
Thank you for your generous support! You will receive an email receipt shortly.
Thank You to ALL the "Gifts from Kaila" for Christmas 2017 Donors!
