The Kyler Project provides resources to families experiencing pregnancy or infant loss

By  | 

NASHVILLE, Tn. (WBKO) -- Another nonprofit 13 News is featuring for Giving Tuesday is The Kyler Project.

The new, 501(c)(3) nonprofit was started by Stephanie Crawford, who had a stillborn child in July of this year, named Kyler Henry Crawford.

Through support, Crawford provides boxes filled with resources, encouragement and grieving tools to bereaved families at Nashville hospitals who have just experienced pregnancy or infant loss.

"My heart, really where it lies now is to help women understand how they can make memories with their babies in a short amount of time," said Crawford. "Making all the memories you can in that tiny little window is what's going to help grieve moving forward."

Right now, Crawford has partnered with Vanderbilt, St. Thomas and Centennial hospitals in Nashville, and is hoping to partner with other hospitals.

"My heart really is passionate about providing people the information in that short little span that they get after they deliver an infant that either is not expected to live or that they know has already passed," said Crawford.

100 percent of funds contributed will go to creating and distributing these boxes of resources to families. So far, Crawford has been able to supply around 20 boxes.

To donate, go to The Kyler Project's Facebook page.
