GEORGETOWN, Texas — Granger Smith's 3-year-old son, River Kelly Smith, died in a drowning incident and his family worked on a way to help the community following the tragic accident.
Smith launched a shirt that people could buy in honor of his son and 100% of the proceeds are going to Dell Children's Medical Center. The shirt quickly sold out and raised $218,791.
Smith posted an emotional video to YouTube on Wednesday where he described his feelings following losing his son and what was going on when his son was found in the pool.
The video also went through how the Smith family organized the t-shirts to raise money for Dell Children's, as well as the moment they donated the money to the medical center.
The shirt the family made to raise money displays a Yee Yee Excavator on it because watching excavators scoop up dirt was something River loved to watch. The shirt is also red, which was his favorite color.
Smith and his wife presented the check at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
