How it all got started...
On April 14, 2011, Easton Andrew passed away unexpectedly. Easton was a happy and healthy baby boy loved by many. He could light up a room with his infectious smile and his loss was devastating to his family and loved ones.
After Easton’s passing the Bauler Family was faced not only with navigating their grief but also with the unpredictability of heavy financial expenses. After looking for resources to help a grieving father cover his financial obligations during this time they found that there were few resources available to grieving parents.
Thankfully, the community rallied together to help Easton’s father through many of the difficulties that come with losing a child. Amazed by the outpour of support Easton’s Cause was founded to return the gift and become the resource that is so badly needed in the community.
Respect. Care. Try
Founded in 2011, Easton’s Cause is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families and youth experiencing unexpected hardships feel some financial relief. Our mission is to give select individuals and families access to extra funds raised through fundraising efforts. These funds are to be given without requirement, to help ease a burden, even if only temporary.
